The match pitting Chapungu and Dynamos has been abandoned in the 55th minute after the goal post collapsed at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.

Dynamos were cruising 4-nil when the match was abandoned.

Welding the goal post was unsuccessful until the referee called off the match as it was getting darker and cold in the stadium.

DembareEmmanuel Mandiranga’s brace and another goal from Denver Mukamba gave DeMbare a 3-nil half time lead before Cameroonian, Joel Christian Ntouba Epoupa gave them a 4-nil lead five minutes after the break.

Then drama came in the 55th minute when the Chapungu goalkeeper collided with the post and fell, together with the post, while trying to save Mandiranga’s overhead lob.

Luckily the goalkeeper looked fine after the collision but the match could not continue.

The rule says if a match is abandoned under such circumstances, it will be replayed within 48hrs, and will start in the 55th minute, with same players and the same score-line.
