Dynamos goal-minder and reigning soccer star of the year, Washington Arubi, remains a cut above the rest in that department, conceding only five times in eight outings. This means the shot-stopper, on the radar, South African ABSA Premiership side Black Leopards, has conceded 0.6 goals per match thus far in the season.
This makes him twice as good as his Black Mambas counterpart, Learnmore Jere, who has let in 16, and Hardbody’s Alexander Useni, beaten 14 times in 9 matches.
Unbeaten Highlanders lead the charts, their Milton Ncube-powered attack having successfully struck 22 times in 8 matches. They are followed by FC Platinum, endowed with skills of former soccer star, Charles Sibanda and Hwange, who have both hit the nets 17 times in 9 matches.
Dynamos have scored 15 goals, while Caps United went into the break having overcome a false start to the season, in which they had failed to register a clean victory in their first five matches. Impatient supporters briefly bayed for the blood of Coach Lloyd Chitembwe and team manager Sean Connor, but the administration turned a deaf ear and the results have begun to come.
Dreadlocked Hardbody captain, Calisto Maheya, drove home in the 20th second in their 1-1 draw with Harare City at Ascot in their seventh game of the season to claim the league’s fastest goal so far.
As league action resumes this weekend, Bosso will be seeking to extend their lead over inactive Dynamos with a win over cross-town rivals, Chicken Inn, as they chase their first championship in six years.
