Both teams came into the match looking for maximum points following their subdued performance in the league this far.
Triangle were the better side and their head coach Biggie Zuze felt they deserved to win.
“We created a lot of chances but we could not bury them. We were also affected by the bumpy pitch but the boys did well,” Zuze said.
Army side coach Arthur Tutani was a disappointed man after failing to get maximum points at home.
“I thought we were going to utilise home advantage and get three points following our away draw away at FC Platinum. But anyway, half a loaf is better than nothing,” Tutani said.
From the first whistle, action swung from end to end with both teams creating few scoring chances. With five minutes to halftime, Rhinos skipper Bruce Homora did well to deny Richard Kawondera a scoring opportunity with an overhead kick with Jonathan Zvaita in goals a beaten man.
Fifteen minutes after the breather, Kawondera failed to connect a Tatenda Tsuro cross. Lameck Nhamo was to be the next Triangle player in line to miss yet another glorious chance, directing his effort wide from a Praise Tonha cross.
With 12 minutes to full-time, James Mukombwe had a chance to win it for Chipembere but his ferocious shot was pushed over the bar by the alert Ronald Mudimu in goals for Triangle.
