Match Report: CAPS Utd VS Harare City

CAPS UNITED …………………(1) 2

HARARE CITY…………………(1) 1


In a premier soccer league match played at the giant National Stadium that saw Taurai Mangwiro facing his former pay masters, the well oiled Green Machine came from a 1 nil deficit to collect maximum points on a 2-1 final score to ensure they keep pace with the leading pack, ascending to the second position on the log table.




Through Honey Chimutimunzeve, the City Fathers opened their scoring account in the third minute before United settled, and continued to dictate the proceedings with confidence as they had silenced the Makepekepe faithfuls occupying the famous bay 14.


Caps United got their first real chance on the 8th minute after Pfumbidzai roasted his marker pushing the ball forward finding Bhamusi on the line who then unleashed a beauty but Dominic Chungwa could have justified by leveling the matters, however, he failed to connect.


3 minutes later, CAPS United launched a counter attack with Zvirekwi releasing a good shot catching the City’s rear guard unaware, but Bhamusi failed to tap home, but directed his effort out for goal kick to the Councilors.


The ball continued to swing from end to end with Caps united slowly crawling in, but on the 17TH minute, dread locked Tendai Samanja set up Honey Chimutimunzeve who almost doubled the lead but in form Jorum Muchambo went airborne to deny the visitors another goal, forcing it out for a corner kick, which was cleared away by Steven Makatuka.


20 minutes passed by, and the Green Army camped in the City’s half, launching attack after another, but Nyamupanedengu gave his all to deny a level in matters by the home team, with Bhamusi and Ngodzo being involved in most of the action.


United continued to attack as they enjoyed a lion’s share on possession towards the end of the first half but the ever alert Nyamupanedengu was not easy to surpass.


Joel Ngodzo was the main man in the middle of the park, dictating the pace just behind strikers, but on most times Chungwa failed to do justice to the efforts built from the back by tapping it in.


With only a minute before half time, Bhamusi and Pfumbidzai exchanged some beauties beating Tendai Samanja  and Blessing Moyo all systems out setting up Dominic Chungwa who was on the left flank. Chungwa unleashed a cross finding a well positioned Ngodzo who made no mistake but released a spectacular shot placing it beyond the reach of Mxwell Nyamupanedengu, in goals for the visitors, to level the matters before the referee blew his whistle to signify the end of the first half, sending fans occupying the western bays on their toes amid wild cheers in applause of a job well done.


Caps united 1-1 Harare City, read the score board.


Upon the resumption of the second half, Lloyd Chitembwe made his first substitute, relegating Kudzai Nyamupfukudza to the bench in preference of Tafadzwa Rusike, a move that paid dividends for the home team as the later upped the tempo of the game, generally, giving the visitors a torid time in their own half.


On the 60th minute, Makatuka unleashed a long one finding Zvirekwi who roasted Blessing Moyo and Manuvire before releasing a long ball to “Fire,” as Rusike is popularly known in the football circles. Fire penetrated speedily into the box setting up Chungwa who instantly tapped it in to put Makepekepe on the driving seat comfortably as they doubled the lead.


5 minutes later, Rusike was caught on the wrong side of football laws after a hand ball just outside the home side’s box following an attack by Manuvire, and the visitors were awarded a freeckick.


Blessing Moyo took the dead ball but was left cursing the football gods as his effort missed by less than an inch, with Jorum Muchambo a well beaten man.


Simba Nhivi was then sacrificed for Denis Dauda, in a defensive approach by Papa Lodza as his side was now dictating the pace of the proceedings left, right, and centre.


With less than 10 minutes before the final whistle, Manuvire and Chitiyo displayed some neat passes finding Madhananga, but the later missed where it was easier to score than to miss.


On the 89th minute, Bhamusi and Pfumbidzai were at it again after they skillfully exchanged some goodies, sending the famous bay 14 on the toes, but Samanja however cleared the danger, with Chitembwe taking the advantage to introduce veteran Leonard Tsipa, at the expense of Joel Ngodzo.


4 minutes were added as injury time.


Tsipa was however cautioned for disturbing the smooth flow of the match after barring Max from taking a goal kick.


The ball boys were at this point nowhere to be found, and the players had to fetch the ball for themselves in the event that it went out.


Raphael Manuvire was once again left cursing the football gods after Jorum Muchambo cleared his effort off the line to deny the visitors an equalizer on the last minute.


United counter attacked, but before they could convert, the referee of the day blew his whistle to bring the curtain down.





Teams: Caps United. J Muchambo, H Zvirekwi, R Pfumbidzai, J Jangano, S Makatuka, K Nyamupfukudza (T Rusike), M Muchenje, P Bhamusi, J Ngodzo, (L Tsipa 87), S Nhivi (D Dauda 68,) Chungwa

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
