Whahwa 1-0 Dynamos
Caps United 0-0 Hwange

WHAHWA shocked defending champions Dynamos in a Castle Premiership match played at Ascot Stadium in Gweru Thursday as the Harare giants suffered their second defeat in a row.

Last Sunday, Dynamos were crushed 3-0 by Chicken Inn at home and were expected to bounce back against a Gweru side that had only won once in seven matches going into this tie.

And Dynamos would have been aware of two men: their former coach Lloyd Mutasa and striker Roy Useni.

Mutasa engineered a 2-1 win over FC Platinum at the same venue that left coach Norman Mapeza on the verge of the sack with Useni scoring a double.

On Thursday, Useni struck the solitary goal in the 43rd minute - a spectacular stunner from outside the box that beat Dynamos goalkeeper Artwell Mukandi hands down.

Dynamos had two chances in the fifth and eighth minutes to take the lead through Dominic Chungwa but he fluffed his lines as the Harare side looked to score early and unsettle the hosts.

From the, the tempo slowed down and Whahwa settled, creating chances here and there but also failing to score until Useni settled matters.

Useni though did not finish the match as he was pulled out in the 58th minute for Nyasha Bude after sustaining an injury following a collision with defender Elisha Muroiwa.

In the 77th minute, Patrick Khumbula thought he had pulled one back for Dynamos but his goal was ruled out for offside.

From there the hosts defended for dear life to safeguard their lead with Dynamos struggling to break down their stubborn defence.

With the win, Whahwa are up to eighth place with eight points while Dynamos remained stuck on 14 points and in fourth place ahead of another tough battle against FC Platinum at Rufaro this Sunday.

At Gwanzura, Caps United failed to maintain the momentum gained from last Sunday’s win against Highlanders when they drew 0-0 with Hwange.

Hwange remained winless in eight matches and this was their sixth draw of the season which sees them perch on 15th on the log with six points.

Caps remained in eighth place with 12 points, one from Highlanders and just two from the third placed team and bitter rivals Dynamos.
