Dynamos 4-0 Gunners
DYNAMOS put a damper on Moses Chunga’s return as Gunners coach with a late show at Rufaro.
After defending stoically for the opening 45 minutes, Gunners collapsed spectacularly in the second period as the defending league champions ripped them apart.
Chunga, who won the league with Gunners in 2009, returned to the club on Saturday, but had not been due to start work until Tuesday.
Gunners came unstuck just two minutes after the breather when Tawanda Muparati opened the floodgates with a majestic volley from the edge of the box.
Denver Mukamba, who scored twice against FC Platinum in midweek, added a second on 55 minutes with a well-placed shot past Stephen Chimusoro’s outstretched hands.
Farai Mupasiri then controlled Rodreck Mutuma’s pass, swivelled and shot from inside Chimusoro’s box to give Dynamos a 3-0 advantage on 71 minutes.
Mutuma drove in the fourth in injury time as Dynamos kept pace with unbeaten leaders, Highlanders, who edged Motor Action 2-1 at Barbourfields.
Dynamos’ goal harvest was significant as they matched Highlanders’ goal difference of +28. It means they can now leapfrog the leaders if they win their game in hand against Hwange.
At Sakubva, CAPS United secured their first point in eight matches with a 0-0 draw against Buffaloes.
This was new coach Taurai Mangwiro’s first point since he took over from Sean Connor. Next up for United is a date with Gweru side, Hardbody, in the capital.
