Shayandima Dynamos FC collected four points from their two MMK Administrators Soccer League matches last weekend.
They drew 1-1 with Flying Eagles at the Tshifulanani Stadium on Saturday and beat Lwamondo Pull Together 2-0 at the Shayandima School grounds the following day.
In Sunday’s match, Pull Together approached the game aggressively, with their strikers giving the Dynamos’ defenders no time to breathe. Dynamos absorbed the pressure and gained momentum with time.
Ananias Mudau of Pull Together was reprimanded with a card, following a continued argument with the referee in the 14th minute. The home side took the lead in the 18th minute. They were awarded a free kick in the 35-meter area after Rendani Mulaudzi was brought down. Mutshidzi Mulovhedzi beat the keeper with a half volley.
The visitors from Lwamondo took the game to the home side in the last 15 minutes of the first half, but their strikers were unlucky.
Pull Together were reduced to 10 men in the 50th minute. Their centre back, Ananias Mudau, was given his marching orders, following a dangerous tackle on Mutshidzi Mulovhedzi.
Vhahangwele Dzivhani of Dynamos was booked for obstructing Jeffrey Tshigoba in the 58th minute. In the 68th minute, Murendeni Seoto of Dynamos received a neat pass from Mutshidzi Mulovhedzi and shot straight to the stranded keeper from close range.
Pull Together played defensive football in the last 20 minutes of the game. At that stage, Dynamos were all over them, searching for more goals. Dynamos increased the margin in the 78th minute. Rendani Mulaudzi scored with a bicycle kick after a scramble within the box.
