DeMbare finally win

HARARE - Dynamos finally registered their first win of the 2013 Castle Premiership season after beating Tripple B at Mandava Stadium yesterday.

The win came as a huge relief to coach Calisto Pasuwa, who was under immense pressure to collect maximum points after having gone for five games without a victory.

“It’s a huge sigh of relief for me because there was a lot of pressure from almost all quarters including myself,” a relieved Pasuwa said after the match.

“We have been playing well but a win was proving elusive.”

The match saw Washington Pakamisa scoring his first goal for DeMbare getting the opener in the 19th minute before Partson Jaure sealed the victory in the 45th minute.

Despite the win Dynamos were far from convincing as it was Tripple B who started on a brighter note knocking the ball around but they lacked a cutting edge upfont.

Simon Maengeni had a chance to open the scoring in the third minute after he was set up by Llyod Chiwaridze but he shot wide.

Dynamos opened the scoring in the 19th minute when Pakamisa finished off a pass from Murape Murape after the visitors had gone on a counter- attack which was initiated by Jaure from the back.

In the 43rd minute Patrick Khumbula saw his header from a Murape cross come off the cross bar.

Dynamos then scored the second goal two minutes later through Jaure from an indirect free kick inside the box.

The free kick came after Tripple B goalkeeper Tapiwa Mafunga handled a back pass from Phillip Makanja.

From the free kick Murape teed up Jaure, who released a grounder through a cluster of Tripple B defenders.

It was Jaure’s second goal in as many matches after netting a late equaliser last weekend in the 1-1 with bitter rivals Highlanders at Rufaro Stadium.

After the breather Friday Phiri brought in Edmore Chafungamoyo for Makanja and the move stabilised the Triple B midfield.

In the 57th minute Maengeni shot wide after a Dynamos defensive mix-up.

A minute later Chafungamoyo had a chance to grab the opener from a free kick just outside the box but his shot went just wide.

Tichaona Mabvura, who came in for Khumbula, failed to put his name on the score sheet after being released on the left by Muparati.

After the match Tripple B coach Phiri said his side played well but failed to score.

“We dominated play in the first half but failed to score but otherwise it was a good game.

“Although I believe the referee was not fair to us. Credit should go to Dynamos for taking their chances,” he said.
