Dynamos 1 - 2  Motor Action

Motor Action Football Club has shot to the top of the Premier Soccer League log in Zimbabwe after pipping Dynamos to a 2-1 victory in a league match in Harare on Sunday. Motor Action's important victory was Dynamos' first loss of the season after going on a eight-match unbeaten run.

Joey Antipas' side came from behind to beat DeMbare with a hotly disupted penalty goal in the second half.

Ashley Rambanepasi had given Dynamos a 16th minute lead, with a well struck shot after finding himself unmarked in a dangerous spot. The midfielder, who played in an offensive role in yesterday's match, controlled the ball brilliantly inside the box from a David Kutyauripo cross from the right and beat veteran goalkeeper Marlon Jani.

 Enasio Perezo equalised for Motor Action in the 43rd minute as the Mighty Bulls refused to be intimidated by their more illustrious opponents who dominated possession early in the match. The top of the table clash never disappointed, as play swung from end to end until 90 minutes. 

In the 70th minute, David Kutyauripo was adjudged to have brought down Charles Sibanda in the box, and referee Thabani Mkantjo awarded a penalty kick to the Mighty Bulls. The in-form midfielder Allan Gahadzikwa took responsibility upon his young shoulders and made no mistake from the spot to give Motor Action a famous and crucial victory.

With 25 points, Motor Action now lead the standings with a single point, and have a whopping goal difference of +18, eight more than second-placed Dynamos. 

Losing a match through a penalty is never easy to stomach for any coach, and Dynamos' coach Elvis Chiweshe felt robbed of a point on Sunday.

"We played very well although we lost the game. It's part of football but I was not happy with the penalty that was awarded to Motor Action.

"These people (the referee and his assistants) know the laws of the game better and if you look at that incident, Motor Action were not supposed to get a penalty because it was a clear dive", bemoaned Chiweshe who has now lost two matches in a row after losing 2-0 at home to TP Mazembe in the Champions league two weekends go.

Dynamos ended the match with 10 men after captain Murape Murape was sent off later in the second half for remonstrating against the referee's decisions.
