THERE was a mixture of good and bad news for Dynamos after the Premier Soccer League awarded the Glamour Boys maximum points on a 3-0 scoreline for the abandoned match against Highlanders.
The Harare giants were then slapped with a US$3 500 fine.
DeMbare paid heavily for the violent bahaviour exhibited by their fans when retaliating to the threats posed by their Bosso counterparts.
Highlanders got a sterner punishment and had vice-captain Peter Muduhwa fined US$500 and suspended for FOUR games.
Dynamos moved to 43 points and gained one place up the log standings after easing into fourth position in the marathon.
The Glamour Boys now trail log leaders Ngezi Platinum Stars by eight points going into the last eight games of the season.
Highlanders remained in third place with 45 points.
“It is also not an issue that the missile throwing and pitch invasion was initiated and instigated by the Highlanders fans who were not happy with the referee’s decision not to award a penalty for what they perceived as a foul on their player in the penalty box.
“According to the match commissioner, Mr Kusosa, some Highlanders supporters got on the pitch, threw a few missiles and retreated. Thereafter, those in blue and white also invaded the pitch in retaliation.
“However, when those in black and white came back in greater numbers those in blue and white withdrew and ran away as they were outnumbered.
“Even those Dynamos fans occupying the Mpilo end of the stadium also ran away,” reads the judgment.
