By Paul Nyathi|Lowly Bulawayo Chiefs finally brought to an end log leaders Ngezi Platinum Stars’ unbeaten run in the Castle Premier League on Sunday.
Chiefs, who had gone for seven games without a win, defied all odds against a Ngezi side that finished the match with nine players at Luveve Stadium yesterday following red cards shown to substitutes Clive Augusto and Xolisani Moyo.
Chiefs beat the run away log leaders through a 30th minute penalty scored by Gracious Muleya.
Collin Dhuwa was the star of the show with a rare career hat-trick when Triangle sent lifeless Harare giants Dynamos into relegation fears.
The “Glamour Boys” paid a heavy prize for investing their trust in a rookie and out-of-sorts coach in Lloyd Chigowe to take charge.
He was in charge of the team in the absence of head coach Lloyd Mutasa who is away with the Warriors in South Africa.
DeMbare succumbed to their seventh defeat in 15 starts.
Dhuwa had only scored a single goal this season in the 2-1 win against Mutare City Rovers in Rusape before this game.
He scored in the 11th, 65th before completing the rout in the 82nd minute to give Triangle a 3 – 0 win over Dynamos.
