Dynamos stormed into the Chibuku Super Cup semi-finals following a 5-4 penalty shootout victory over Herentals at Rufaro Stadium this afternoon.
Dynamos shrugged off the challenge of Herentals in an encounter decided by a nervy penalty shootout.
In the first half Dynamos were quick off the blocks with Kudzanayi Dhemere handed with a big opportunity to open the scoring but, however, headed over the bar with the goal at his mercy.
Herentals also showed some attacking intent with Blessing Majarira denied by some fine goalkeeping.
Dynamos would, however, open the scoring in the 25th minute courtesy of a clinical finish by Quality Kangadze who neatly placed the ball at the bottom left hand corner.
The Glamour Boys joy was, however, shortlived with Majarira equalising from the spot five minutes later in a contest that would go to half time break deadlocked at 1-all.
Second half substitute Valentine Kadzonzvo almost had an immediate impact after a move involving Godfrey Mukambi created an opportunity that was thwarted by impressive goalkeeping.
Despite attempts by both sides to push for a winner the contest would go to penalties after ending in a 1-all stalemate.
The Glamour Boys suffered an early set back after Emmanuel Mandiranga’s spot kick struck the upright in a shootout in which the next 8 penalties would find the back of the net.
Herentals had an opportunity of sailing into the semi’s with their 5th penalty but Edgar Mhungu watched in agony as his spot kick was saved by Simbarashe Chinani in goals for Dynamos.
Marshal Machazane would convert the Glamour Boy’s 6th penalty with Archmore Majarira failing to convert in what handed Dynamos a quarter final win and a place in the last 4.
Meanwhile, in another quarter final encounter, Triangle trounced Nichrut 5-1 at Gibbo Stadium to progress to the last four of the Chibuku Super Cup.
