Feutcheu Breaks Yosa’s Home Invincibility

Yong Sport Academy of Bamenda yesterday suffered a 0-2 defeat to Feutcheu FC of Bandjoun at the Academy centre at Mile VI Nkwen , the team’s first defeat at the ground since they moved there on May 4, 2015 against Panthere of Bagante,  following the launch of construction of works at the Bamenda Municipal Stadium, their previous home ground.

The defeat was more aching because it was the first time both teams are crossing path in the MTN Elite One Championship and the two goals were scored in quick succession following the resumption of play at the 48 and 51 minutes and comes at the background of an away defeat to Aigle  of Menoue in the previous day.

Franklin Tchebenou reacted first to connect with a cross from the right at the 48th Minute to head it passed a static Mbem Leopold and as the home fans were still to comprehend the circumstances leading to the goal, Serge Patrick profited from a defensive mix up to slot the ball between Mbem legs for the second three minutes later.

Despite playing the last 28 minutes a man up, Yosa failed to get on the score sheet, hitting the target twice in a tense final moment of the game where keeper Eric Sadjio of Feutcheu proved to alert for the home attackers, stifling any plans by Yosa to come back into the game and using every available trick to kill time.

The defeat, Yosa’s second in as many days of play means the team drops from 8 to 11 position on the log table and could close the first half of the championship in a difficult situation as they next travel up North to Garoua to confront a rejuvenated Cotonsport.

Else where in the championship, struggling Lion Blesse picked its first victory of the campaign with a 0-1 win over Colombe of the South in Yaounde. Dragon of Yaoundé applied some speed breaks on Stade Renard with a slim 1-0 victory at home.  Canon continues it fight for survival with a 2-1 victory over New Stars of Douala in Mbankomo and in Bafoussam, Racing beat Bamboutos of Mbouda by 1-0. (complete result  and standing)
