Dynamos failed to narrow Motor Actionâ€™s lead at the summit of the premiership standings after going down 1-nil to Hwange in a match played at Rufaro Stadium this afternoon.
Despite dominating much of the game in the first half, the Glamour Boys failed to find the back of the net.
Benjamin Marere, Murape Murape and Evans Gwekwere all came close to hitting the target but the goal proved elusive.
So elusive was the goal for Dembare that even a dubious penalty awarded to them could not produce a goal.
It was drama when referee Masimba Chihowa adjudged that Wonder Sithole had been infringed upon in the penalty box.
The decision sparked wild protests within the Hwange camp and proceedings momentarily came to a standstill for about 3 minutes.
When play finally resumed, Guthrie Zhokinyu failed to handle the psychological war game and fired his penalty wide.
It was a miss that the Glamour Boys paid dearly for as Hwange started playing with a purpose.
It was not long before Rodwell Chinyengetereâ€™s tap in from close range handed Hwange an all important winner on the stroke of full time.
Hwange coach, Tenant Chilumba was delighted by the victory, while Dynamos assistant Simon Tshuma expressed dismay at Dembareâ€™s failure to seize the chances which came their way.
In other premiership encounters, Motor Action drew 1-all with Shabanie Mine at Maglas stadium while Gunners and Lengthens also shared the spoils, settling for a 2-all draw in a match played at the National Sports Stadium.
Meanwhile, Mkhupali Masuku continued to have his place in the sun after guiding Highlanders to a third consecutive victory with a 1-nil victory over Caps United at Luveve Stadium.
