Bosso pip DeMbare in Independence trophy final

Highlanders Football Club broke the curse that has seen them fail to win against Dynamos in five years, when they defeated the Harare giants 4-3 on penalties in the Zimbabwe's Independence Day celebrations trophy at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.

More than 90 minutes of open play football could not seperate the country's two biggest teams, and Bosso had to win it in the penalty lottery which followed regulation time.

Reliable Dynamos penalty taker Guthrie Zhokinyu missed a penalty in normal play in the 15th minute after referee Ruzive Ruzive had adjudged that Gift Lunga had brought down Martin Vengesayi in the box.

Zhokinyu stepped up to take the kick, but horribly missed!

The Warriors defender was to miss his second penalty of the day during the lottery to give advantage to Highlanders. Another key player captain Desmond Maringwa missed Dynamos' final kick to confirm Bosso celebrations.

In the 3rd place play-offs, Gunners beat champions Motor Action 9-8 on penalties at White City stadium to finish 3rd and pocket $6 000, while the Mighty Bulls walked away with $4000.

 Lawson Nkomo, Misheck Mburayi, Gilbert Banda and Njabulo “JB” Ncube converted for the Bulawayo giants, while Lawson Nkomo missed.

For Dynamos,  David Kutyauripo, Farai Vimisai and George Magariro converted their kicks.

Bosso coach Mkhupali "Mr. Cooper" Masuku celebrated the victory by dedicating the tropy to his club's fans who have stood by the team during the hard times the team has been going through in recent weeks.

“After so many years I’m glad that we finally did it.

"I also feel honoured to be the one who finally broke that jinx and I should also thank the supporters who came out today to support the team. I dedicate this win and the trophy to them for their continued support,” Masuku said.

For their efforts, Bosso get US$10 000, while Dynamos pocket $8 000.
