Dynamos and CAPS United shared the spoils in the Harare Derby played at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

The two sides took the game to each other in the opening minutes, but it was the Green Machine who controlled the possession afterwards and finished the first half as the better side.

Joel Ngodzo commanded the midfield on their side while Phineas Bamusi brought some trouble along the left flank.

Goalkeeper Simbarashe Chinani had to be called to action on several occasions, and his first real save came in the 17th minute when Bamusi fired from the range.

Ngodzo also had an opportunity at the same end, but his shot went an inch wide while Dominic Chungwa had his effort denied by the keeper on minute 42.

CAPS United finally broke the deadlock three minutes later through Ngodzo who slotted home just outside the box.

However, Dynamos responded swiftly and restored parity in the added time courtesy of Simba Nhivi’s effort off an assist from Evans Katema.

The game went to the break in a stalemate.

The second half belonged to the Glamour Boys who took the momentum to their opponents but could not get the goal.

Godknows Murwira’s dangerous effort from a free-kick on the hour missed the target by inches while substitute Ngandu Mangala followed up a few moments later and wasted a golden chance which had a potential to bring a chance.

Makepekepe tried to reclaim the control but failed to do so for the remainder of the game.

They didn’t create any solid chance, and the biggest highlight of the half in their attacking end came on the 76th minute when Mangala handled the ball inside the box but the penalty appeal was turned down by the referee.

Meanwhile, in other games played on Sunday, Highlanders suffered a last-minute heartbreak when Manica Diamonds denied them maximum points in the added time of the 1-1 draw played at Vengere Stadium.

Pritchard Mpelele netted the equaliser to cancel out a 17th-minute goal by Prince Dube.

At Luveve Stadium, TelOne lost 2-0 to visitors Mushowani Stars.

Dynamos 1-1 CAPS United
Manica Diamonds 1-1 Highlanders
