Hwange shock Dynamos, as Highlanders' revival continues

[Posted 18 Oct 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Highlanders beat CAPS United 1-0 in Bulawayo on Sunday

The Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League provided some exciting weekend results. Little Hwange came to Harare and left Dynamos fans shell-shocked, and Highlanders continued with their revival under Mkhupali Masuku.

Dynamos hosted Hwange at Rufaro stadium on Sunday in a league match which the Glamour Boys desperately needed to win to win pressure on Motor Action on top.

Chipangano, as Hwange is known, burst Dynamos' bubble in the 84th minute when they punished the home team for missing numerous chances through out the match through Rodwell Chinyengetere, who punced on a rebound from an excellent Fortune Ncube strike.

The enterprising Ncube had made a mockery of Dynamos left back Khumbulani Banda and had unleashed a strike which Washington Arubi had done well to punch back into play. Chinyengetere made an effective follow-on, and created a defeaning silence through out Rufaro.

Earlier Dynamos had missed numerous chances including a controversial penalty awarded by referee Masimba Chihohwa, which penalty specialist Guthrie Zhokinyu surprisingly wasted.

At Babrbourfields, a Highlanders under revival had to test the real strength of a CAPS United team that had notched five wins in a row until Gunners halted them with a draw last week.

Tshilamoya did not disappoint their home fans and pinned Makepekepe in their own half for much of the first half. Bernard Mupera then struck a priceless goal to give Bosso a well-deserved three points in Bulawayo.

Mkhupali Masuku was thrown into the deep-end following the resignation of Egyptian Mohammed Fathi. Masuku has resurrected the fortunes of the Bulawayo giants and has led the team to three wins in a row, a sign of good times returning to Barbourfields.

On Saturday, former champions Monomotapa underscored their championship credentials with an excellent away performance at Douglas Warriors, and they were rewarded with a 4-1 victory. They have now jumped into 3rd place, with 36 points from 21 matches.

Dynmos remain second placed despite their loss at home to Hwange, but they failed to close the gap between themselves and leaders Motor Action. The Mighty Bulls themselves dropped a crucial two points at Shabanie on Sunday.

Only 6 points seperate the top two teams now, but Dynamos at 40 points out of 18 games, have three games in hand, and if they are to win just two games, they will catch up with Motor Action who are sitting on top with 46 points.

CAPS United dropped to sixth place as a consequence of their loss at Barbourfields on Sunday and have 32 points. Defending Champions Gunners dropped two crucial points after being held to a 2-2 draw by Lengthens. They sit on 4th position.
