Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Reporter

AMAHLOLANYAMA @90 mem­bers have do­nated a food ham­per to out­stand­ing young High­landers cen­tral de­fender Peter Muduhwa, whom they picked as their man of the match in the epic en­counter that saw them com­plet­ing a hard fought league dou­ble over archri­vals Dy­namos at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium on Sun­day.

Bosso beat DeMbare 2-1 with goals by Muduhwa’s twin cen­tre-back Tendai Ndlovu and veteran striker Ralph Matema in three min­utes of mis­ery for the Harare giants.

The Glam­our Boys had taken a first half lead in the 28th minute through lively winger Masimba Mam­bare fol­low­ing some shock­ing mark­ing by the Bosso rear­guard.

It was, how­ever, the star per­for­mance by Muduhwa, whose solo run re­sulted in Bosso’s sec­ond goal af­ter he over­lapped, beat­ing a clus­ter of Dy­namos play­ers, which got fans talk­ing.

When he got into the box, he flighted an invit­ing cross that Matema oblig­ingly headed home trig­ger­ing ju­bi­lant scenes at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium.

It fi­nally dawned on the mul­ti­tude of High­landers’ fans that a dou­ble was now well within sight.

The Soweto stand-based Amahlolanyama @90 mem­bers, who have pledged to se­lect a man of the match for all Bosso’s re­main­ing home games, felt Muduhwa was the star of the day and lived true to their pledge by pre­sent­ing a ham­per con­sist­ing of var­i­ous food­stuffs.

The ham­per was pre­sented to Muduhwa by High­landers vice-chair­man Mod­ern Ng­wenya on be­half of Amahlolanyama @90.

The 23-year-old’s star con­tin­ues to rise and his ex­ploits re­mind many of an­other club leg­end Dazzy Kapenya in just about ev­ery­thing.

Speak­ing af­ter the match, Muduhwa said they never re­ally pan­icked when DeMbare shot ahead.

“I never pan­icked when they went ahead, as I knew we would get the goal be­cause their front run­ners were never re­ally giv­ing us pres­sure. I never felt them and I knew it was only a mat­ter of time,” said Muduhwa — @ skhu­moyo2000.
