YOSA Overpowers Bamboutos Again

A Sublime overhead kick by Alexandre Nsangue at the 45th minute was all it took for Yong Sport Academy to overcome its archrival, Bamboutos of Mbouda in a Grassfield derby  at the Yong Sport Academy Field at Ntenefor –Mile 6 Nkwen.

Both sides engaged the game with a lot of venom as the hundred of travelling fans danced and chanted at the top of their voices, hoping for once to drown the home supporters who have always had the victorious celebration over them in the past six league games. Bamboutos came into the game looking for its first goal and win over YOSA since 2014, and yet they failed short of that.

Yosa rose above Bamboutos intimidation and tactics, giving them more than what they received in hard tackles. Quincy Binzi, the Central African and former Bamboutos player was given particular attention by the visitors. He received a heavy knock on the face as he tried to navigate his way past two defenders as early as the 3rd minute, requiring some medical attention.

Quincy was once more at the receiving end of some nasty treatment forcing the referee Tchouta Paul to book Carlian Manga at the 21st minute. Yosa continued to mount pressure with Tamo Timwo hitting the target thrice and thrice failing to beat Boiloau Raoul.  Quincy and Kilah Gilbert had great opportunities to break the deadlock when both men raced clear on goal at the 38th and 40th minutes but were wrongly flagged offside prompting angry reactions from the crowd.

Moments later, Tieche Eric launched a dead-ball from the left, 10 metres into Bamboutos’ half resulting to a poor clearance which fell kindly for Alexandre Nsangue who produced a stunning bicycle kick to beat the Keeper at his low left post to send into ecstatic euphoria  the over 3000 home fans.

The second half kicked off with Bamboutos sensing an opportunity to draw blood from the host. They multiplied their chances but just like in the first half failed to hit the target until the 60th minute when a free kick found it way through the defense wall by Mbem Leopold was up to the challenge. The best of the actions were left for the final minutes of the match when Yosa were stopped on two occasions from killing the game with two brilliant saves from the Bamboutos keeper. Yosa keeper was also forced into another save in the dying minutes of the game to keep his teams hope alive.

Yosa’s victory means they’ve had the better of their closest neighbour in the Elite one in the last 7 encounters. The result lifts Yosa to 8 spot on 19 points, and barely 6 points from the top spot occupied by Eding Sport on 25 points.
