August 27 2017 – OCEAN Mushure scored a contender for a goal of the season leading Dynamos to a 2-0 win over Yadah at Rufaro Stadium today.
Christian Epoupa weighed with the other goal as Dynamos moved into third position after a five match winning streak.
Dembare settled early into the match with Mushure and Mukamba coming close twice but lacked precision in front of goal. The Dynamos skipper however made it right on the stroke of halftime when he received the ball from Epoupa just outside the box and released a rising shot into the far right corner giving Tafadzwa Dube no chance.
Yadah coach Thomas Ruzive made a double substitution at the start of the second half bringing in Moses Demera for Milton Makopa and Munyaradzi Chiwara for Johannes Sibanda. The substitution ticked for Yadah as it added an attacking impetus with Demera and Mutuma linking up well upfront. The only difference was Dynamos goalkeeper Tonderai Mateyaunga who made some crucial saves first denying Mutuma on close range before thwarting another effort from Dennis Dauda.
With Yadah pressing hard for an equaliser, Dynamos got a cushion goal against run of play when Epoupa capitalised on poor defending by Yadah central defensive pairing of Dauda and Donald Dzvinyai.
The goal extinguished any hopes of a comeback from Yadah and Dynamos managed to hold on to a morale boosting victory ahead of the Harare derby against Caps United next weekend.
