dynamos zimbabwe georger shaya.jpgIt was a dramatic weekend of action in the Premier Soccer League with the major highlight being the battle of Harare which saw Dynamos ending Caps United’s dominance over them with a 2-1 win at Rufaro Stadium. The weekend also saw Motor Action’s unbeaten run continuing while debutants FC Victoria tasted defeat for the first time in the top flight league.

The Battle of Harare was high in drama and lived up to its pre-match billing.  Having played second fiddle to Caps United for three years, Dynamos overcame a considerable measure of psychological deficiency before summoning a great deal of mental strength to overcome their bitter rivals in a fierce battle for supremacy. The long wait for the victory made it all the more special for the Dembare players who are basking in the glory of their memorable win over Makepekepe.

With focus on Dembare’s first league win over Caps United in three years and their second in eight years, Motor Action were quietly taking control of the league after beating hapless Bantu Rovers 2-1 at Babourfields Stadium to make it three out of three. While the Mighty Bulls were celebrating their third victory in succession, it was all doom and gloom for Chintsha Guluva as the defeat was their third on the trot. Motor Action are now on nine points clear of the other two early pacesetters FC Victoria and Eagles who stumbled over the weekend.

Eagles were held 1 all by Shabanie Mine at Rudhaka Stadium in Marondera and are now second on seven points.  Debutants FC Victoria’s unbeaten run in top flight football came to an abrupt end after they fell 2-1 to Shooting Stars at Ascot Stadium in Gweru. The Masvingo based side is third on six points and share the same number of points with Dynamos though they have a better goal difference.

Bulawayo giants Highlanders recovered from their one nil defeat to rivals Dynamos in a midweek encounter by beating reigning champions Gunners by one goal to nil at Barbourfields Stadium to move to fifth.

Lengthens finally discovered how to win with a 2-1 victory over new boys Black Mambas who themselves are yet to win a match. Mambas together with Monomotapa, Kiglon, Caps United, Douglas Warriors and Bantu Rovers are yet to record wins in the 2010 to Premiership season.
