ZPC Kariba extend impressive run as Black Rhinos dehorn Dynamos


By Jafferson Ndhlovu,

ZPC Kariba this afternoon brought to an end defending Champions Caps Uninted’s unbeaten run via 2-1 win.

The fortress in the resort and electricity generation town is getting stronger and stronger each week. The latest casualty are Zimbabwe’s continental representatives not so Greenmachine in Caps United.

The win straight away sent the Kariba side to the summit of 2017 Castle Premier league table. Over the weekend the Sunday Chidzambwa tutored boys sat on the perch but briefly. 24 hours later they got dethroned by Ngezi Platinum. There were not surrender that completely as they welcome the defending champions.

A suspected controversial penalty was awarded to the homeside in the 12th minute but Caps goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda was up to the task to save. Came the 20th minute the giant goalie could not do much to stop Zekumbawire from scoring to put the host ahead.

On the restart Caps United wasted no time as no time as Amidu equalised a minute from the restart. But the patience and shrewdness of veteran coach against Caps United coach he tutored at national team level paid off.

Just when all thought the Greenmachine won’t suffer a second loss in less than 7 days, Tigere scored in 89th minute to hand his the 3 points and bank the top position going into weak nine.

Meanwhile, legendary club and giants Dynamos FC continued their poor performance. This troubled play has been haunting the club with most titles in Zimbabwe since last season. It seemingly they have not found an answer.

They had hoped to dampen the spirits of resurgent top flight returnees Army side Black Rhinos by setting the match to be played under floodlights. But this could not deter the soldiers who pierced the host through a Lot Chiwinga. An error by Muroiwa for the second in the match could not wasted.

Gunning for a brace Chiwinga had thought he put the Army side 2up but the assistant flagged the goal. In the end a solid Chauya Chipembere went home all smiles on this chillie Thursday evening.

The determined Soldier men are sitting pretty in second position.
