Dedza Dynamos scored two unanswered goals against Capital City giants, Blue Eagles but their 2-0 second leg win in the Airtel Top was not enough to prolong their interest in the competition.
Going into the encounter, the Dedza based side needed to overturn a 3 goals advantage which the Malawi Police headquarters side secured in the first leg match.
From kick off, Dedza Dynamos was a better side enjoying possession but were wasteful in front of goal leaving the two sides level at half time.
Their fortunes changed in the second half, finding the net in the 65th minute through Clement Nyondo who went on to complete his brace in the 84th minute.
The third decisive goal did not come and it is the Eagles who proceeded to the semi-final of the competition.
Dynamos coach Dan Dzimkambani attributed his team’s failure to overturn the deficit to poor officiation.
"I am happy that the boys played according to instructions from the first whistle as we dominated the game and created a lot of chances," Dzinkambani said.
He added: “The referee should have done better as some decisions he made were not correct.”
Blue Eagles assistant coach Christopher Sibale said he was happy with his team’s performance.
"We knew the job was already done in the first leg, that's why we told the boys to just enjoy the match," he said.
Up next, Eagles will face Mighty Mukuru Wanderers who overcame MAFCO to reach the last 4 of the tournament.
