Dynamos 3-0 Lesotho Correctional Services

DYNAMOS eased past Lesotho Correctional Services (LCS) at Rufaro on Sunday to establish a commanding lead in this African Champions League preliminary round fixture.

Skipper Tawanda Muparati had Dynamos ahead after 20 minutes to settle the hosts’ nerves before Ugandan youth international Boban Ziruntusa made it 2-0 on the hour mark.

Ten minutes later, centre back Patson Jaure struck a sweet free kick to give the Zimbabwean champions a big lead to take into the second leg.

Dynamos had the better of the chances early on with Devon Chafa testing LCS goalkeeper Sam Ketsekile from long range after four minutes before Muparati forced a corner which Ziruntusa headed against the cross bar.

Muparati then gave Dynamos the lead in the 20th minute taking a chance with a long range shot that nestled in the top left corner.

Once they went ahead, Dynamos threatened to run away with the game but their attacks fizzled in the final third against the visitors who failed to test the hosts’ goalkeeper George Chigova.

Dynamos’ second came from the head of debutante Ziruntusa who nodded in Thomas Magorimbo’s cross at the near post.
 
Jaure then put the icing on the cake with a stunning free kick from 30 yards out.

The second leg will be played in Maseru on March 3 and Pasuwa believes his side could have had a bigger win had they not been wasteful in front of goal.

“Our main problem is the chances that we missed. We had a number of chances which we should have put away so that we make out life easier in Lesotho,” he said at the final whistle.

“They can also score three goals at home as they seemed more comfortable on the ball than us.”
 
LCS coach Shoes Mokhothu is confident the deficit can be overturned.

“We played well in the first half but my players got tired in the second half. If they scored three goals here, we can also win 3-0 in Lesotho and my best striker will be around then.”

Dynamos: G Chigova, T Magorimbo, P Jaure, G Bello, A Mbara, D Chafa, T Muparati, R Madamombe (F Mupasiri, 60th min), C Sekete (T Mabvura, 70th min), B Ziruntusa, M Murape
