Breaking: Battle of Zim abandoned after crowd trouble

The game between Highlanders and Dynamos was abandoned before the fulltime whistle after chaotic scenes forced two lengthy stoppages.

The first interruption happened at the hour mark and lasted for fifteen minutes after the home team threatened to invade the pitch after Bill Antonio’s challenge left Andrew Tandi with a broken leg.

The incident also saw players and officials from both sides clashing and Antonio received a straight red card.

After the situation calmed, another lengthy stoppage followed when Highlanders took the lead in the 90th minute through Washington Navaya’s header.

The home team’s fans then invaded the pitch celebrating, while Dynamos players surrounded the referee protesting his decision to allow the goal.

The visitors felt there was a foul on Shadreck Nyahwa during the build-up to the goal and another rough challenge on keeper Tymon Mvula, and a free should have been given instead.

Dembare’s supporters on the Mpilo end then joined in and also invaded the pitch. They uprooted the goalposts and tore the nets.

The perimeter fence was also broken.

Players and officials immediately left the pitch and sought sanctuary in the tunnel, causing the play to be suspended.

Dynamos fans then started throwing missiles to the groundsmen who are trying to fix a broken post and this forced the match commissioner to abandon the game.

  1. Your reportinmg isn terrible. you failed to capture properly what happened at the stadium. You are biased and incompetent

  2. I think that a property foreclosures can have a major effect on the borrower’s life. Home foreclosures can have a 7 to ten years negative effect on a borrower’s credit report. A new borrower that has applied for a mortgage or just about any loans for example, knows that the actual worse credit rating is definitely, the more complicated it is to have a decent loan. In addition, it could affect the borrower’s capacity to find a good place to let or rent, if that turns into the alternative property solution. Interesting blog post.

  3. Hi there exceptional website! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?

    I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions
    or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject
    but I just had to ask. Thanks!

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  5. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!
