By Tafadzwa Chigandiwa

After a poor start to the Chibuku Super Cup opening competition, playing to a goalless draw against Herentals in the opening fixture, Dynamos FC bounced back to find their winning ways on Saturday.

The Glamour Boys thrashed Yadah FC 4-0 at the National Sports Stadium and the big win saw them become Group A log leaders with four points from two games.

Goals from newly signed midfielder, Shadreck Nyahwa who grabbed a brace on his debut, Cameroonian striker Albert Eonde and defender Godknows Murwira saw Dembare collecting the muchly needed maximum points.

Nyahwa opened the scoring account for the Tonderayi Ndirayi’s coached side in the 9th minute and also sealed it in the 67th minute with a long range left footed drive from the centre line.

After Nyahwa’s 9th minute opener, former FC Platinum forward Eonde who joined Dynamos in 2020 doubled the team’s lead in the 21st minute, while versatile defender, Murwira scored a goal of the tournament contender from a 30-metre drive straight into the right top corner to cement Dembare’s comfortable lead.

Meanwhile, the 20 time League Champions are now leading the pack in Group A with four points from two games followed by their city rivarls Caps United who have two points from the same number of games.

Makepekepe are yet to register a win in the 2021 Chibuku Super Cup competition which saw the return of football in Zimbabwe after more than 12 months.

The struggling green machine played to a 2-2 draw against Magaya’s Yadah FC in their opening fixture with their new poster boy, Ishamael Wadi salvaging a draw after scoring two goals as the team was trailing by 2 goals to nil.

Therefore, it was the same old story yesterday (Sunday) for Darlington Dodo’s troops to come from behind as they drew other city rivarls Harare City at the National Sports Stadium.

The two teams played to 1-1 draw, City took the lead in the 57th minute when experienced William Manondo simple tapped the ball home without thinking twice after a superb cut back hard and low cross by former Caps forward Clive Rupiya.

In the 73rd minute it was Makepekepe’s new boy again, Ishmael Wadi who rescued the team and registered his third goal donnjng the green and white kit.

The former Harare City player made no mistake to directed his powerful close range header past SunShine Boys shotstopper Maxwell Nyampanedengu, after a beautiful cross from the left from substitute Jimu Jnr Gwara.

In another Group A fixture that was played on Sunday at the same venue (NSS) ZPC Kariba and Herentals shared the spoils after playing to a goalless draw.
