MTN Elite One: YOSA – Dragon Share Spoils

Two goals in the last five minutes of play in a fairly contested encounter at the Yong Sport Academy stadium at Mile-VI Nkwen this afternoon was all that was there  to write home about when tradition between the two teams was once more respected. Yong Sport for the third season running has failed to record a win against the Yaoundé outfit that continues to have the upper hand in all five encounters till date between the two teams.

When Alexandre Nsangue reacted first to meet a cross from a dead ball by Ntieche Eric from the right flank at the 85 minute to beat Patrick Hamadjam Meteke, the close to 3000 fans who turn up for the game burst into raptures, believing their team had sealed the three points of the day, but that was not to be so. Less than two minutes after, when fans of Yosa were still celebrating, Ulrich Donovan Ewolo profited from some defensive inattentiveness to head in the equalizer from a long throw from the right, 5 metres away from the corner flag. Many home fans only found out that Dragon had scored when they say the restart of the game by Yosa.

Five minutes of additional time and an intense pressure from the home side failed to yield any fruits, leaving Djomo Ngnoko and his assistant, Victorine Fomun to leave Bamenda failing satisfied to have accomplished their mission which was not to lose.

“We came here to collect at least one point, I think today we did it and am happy” Djomo said, adding he missed some key players to the Junior National team before the game but was happy with the young players who dominated the game.

His opposite number, Ndumbe Bosso felt his right back; Ntieche Eric made a technical mistake by letting the ball bounced before clearing for a throw-in that led to the goal. Ndumbe Bosso also refused to blame the draw on the absence of some of his key players like Nkamfu Gilbert and Tamo Tinwo and his play-maker, Ebongue Ebongue who abandoned the game at the 67 minute due to injury.

Yosa next travel to Dschang to take on Aigle of the Menoua while Dragon remains in the grassfield to confront Bamboutos of Mbouda.
