Police fire teargas as Dynamos held, Highlanders also drop points

Sports Reporter


POLICE fired teargas to respond to some missile throwing Dynamos fans who could not stomach seeing their team trail to Yadah in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match that ended 1-1 at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, fellow premiership giants Highlanders also played to a 2-2 draw with Chicken Inn in a Bulawayo derby.

But the talking point was at Rufaro in which chaos led to a brief stoppage of the match after police threw teargas in attempts to contain skirmishes.

Yadah captain Jimmy Dzingai also had his own controversial moment when he threw back a missile in the stands leading to his earning a red card.

Now playing 10 men, Dynamos took the opportunity to level the scores ending the encounter in a 1 all draw.

It was Dynamos’ third draw this season while they have lost 3 matches in 6 premiership appearances so far.

At Barbourfields Stadium, Highlanders’ Brian Banda put his team ahead moments before half time only for Innocent Muchaneka to draw level early in the second half.

Gabriel Nyoni was quick to restore the Bosso lead, but Simon Munawa came back to score against his former paymasters to end the match 2-2.

At Maglas Stadium, log leaders Ngezi Platinum dropped their first set of points when they were held to a 1:1 draw by hosts Shabanie Mine.

At Gibbo Stadium, hosts Triangle beat Harare giants Caps United 2-1.
