Dynamos overcame Black Mambas 2-0 to win the league title on better goal difference after the two teams finished on 54 points. Harare City’s two-all draw against Caps United and Highlanders’ 3-1 win over Shabanie Mine have seen the 1998 Caf Champions League finalists shoot to the top of the table.

Last year’s scenario on the last day of the season saw Dynamos piping Highlanders on goal difference and it’s a repeat of what transpired last year, with Dynamos finishing on 54 points, just like Highlanders and Harare City. But the popular Harare club took the title on goal difference.

Tshepo Mabalane, a prominent Bosso staunch supporter, was quick to congratulate Dembare, soon after they were crowned champions. “I can’t believe it, but it has happened. Congratulations are in order Dynamos, Dembare,” said Mabalane.

“This year it was fair and square. Even the six minutes added time in a match that featured my club at Rufaro could have been avenged at BF Stadium, but we failed ourselves. I am wishing you all the best. You just have to admire Dynamos FC.”

Nodumo Nyathi, another outspoken Bosso follower, said Dembare deserved to be champions.

“Dynamos have proven that using players who love and cherish the jersey gives trophies. Even charging them $3 meant more fans and more morale for the boys. As a team, we (Bosso) failed and Dynamos should be praised for a job well-done.”

Ntandokayise Maphosa urged fellow Bosso supporters to unite for the team to succeed next season.

“I am happy for Dynamos. They did a good job. I believe we need to unite as supporters. Let’s do something just to show the executive that Bosso is who we are and they shouldn’t play around with it.”

For their win, Dynamos walked away with $70,000 first prize money while Bosso get $50,000 and Harare City take home $30,000.

Highlanders are also in the final of the Mbada Diamonds Cup, where they play How Mine on Saturday and are already $90,000 rich for reaching the final. If they win, they will get $130 000, bringing their season total to $180 000, more than double what Dynamos earned.
