Elite One: Yosa kickoff 2nd phase with away victory


Yong Sport Academy today recorded a one-nil victory over Sable of Batie in Mbouda  to open up a four points gap above the relegation zone and at the same time launch a hunt for the top spot in the MTN Elite one championship after the start of the second phase of the championship today.

The results place the Bamenda side at the 6th position from the 8th on 19 points, 11 behind leaders Les Astres of Douala that humiliated current league leaders Union, 4-0 today at the Douala reunification stadium.

Cotonsport of Garoua also made its intention to once more challenge for the top spot known with a resounding 4-0 victory over Tonnerre at the Yaounde Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium. The result takes them to 4th on the log on 21 points, 9 behind Les Astres.

Unisport maintained runners up spot despite a virgin tie with Panthere at home. Unisports counts 24 points at 2nd position, just one ahead of the Douala Athletic Club that beat New Star in the second sawa derby on Sunday by 2-1.

In Limbe, the Njala Quan Sports Academy were held to a barren game by visiting Renaissance of Ngoumou while the last match of day 14 saw Canon Sportive of Yaounde travel to Banjoun to impose a 0-1 victory over bottom placed Fovu Club of Baham.

The verdict of day 14 leaves Union of Douala to chew over its faith, as they drop into the relegation zone on 15 points despite telling former head coach Djonkep Bonaventure that he was subject to requirement during the short break before the restart of the championship. The two cousins from Batie and Baham that have adopted pitches away from home in Mbouda and Bandjoun are wondering how all the preparations they put in during the break have failed to improve their standings as they unwittingly find themselves still wedged in the bottom of the log.

With a possible 36 points up for grasp before the end of the league, there is still time for all the teams to rethink and set down targets before they start resulting to calculators to see clearly their chances of surviving.
