It may have been easy to dismiss the Dynamos in the first half of the season, but they made a 180 and have become contenders.
In the early morning match, the Dynamos made an example of the hapless Wuji on home turf in their bid to make it to the semi-finals and a chance for the championship.
It would be Dynamos 31 Illya Kyrylyuk to draw first blood from a free-kick awarded after a Wuji foul at 24 minutes into the half. Having adopted the midfield position after a dismal stretch as Dynamo goalkeeper, this was Kyrylyuk's first regular play goal.
13 minutes later, with ball in hand, Goalkeeper Boris Danilovich (coincidentally, Kyrylyuk's replacement) abandoned his post and with two sequential bursts joined a Dynamo rush. A pass to captain Petrovich was quickly returned back and instead of passing and safely retreating back to his position, he fired from 20 meters. The ball defected off defender Mangat and right by Hu Liao, who has taken goalkeeper position after Seaton's week 20 injury.
Before the 1st have would end, 22 Serhij Stadnyk would add another goal for the Dynamos.
Having taken the match, the Dynamos fate is now in the hands of Al'amal SC. Should Al'amal lose against the Amrita Immortals, they capture the last slot and make their way to the semi-finals. If, however, Al'amal wins, even though they would be tied in the standings at 11-10, the slot goes to the team with higher standing and they will be eliminated.
"We can only wait for the match in Amrita this afternoon,", said Petrovich, "It will certainly be unbearable for us to watch and rely on the Immortals to win on our behalf."
