Coton Sport take control
This is the fourth defeat in five encounters for the Moungo club, which has only one point more than the duo occupying the bottom of the table.
The other noteworthy point about Day 5 is that it saw Canon’s first victory of the season. The club under the new leadership of Souleymanou Aboubakar beat Tiko United 2-1 at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaoundé.
But it was Ernest Agbor’s protégés who opened the score, through Nougoum Ngassam just after the half hour mark.
“Kpa Kum” trailed 1-0 at the break, but reacted in the second half by first equalising on a controversial penalty by Atouba Yazid at the 49th minute, then by taking a definite advantage less than 10 minutes later thanks to Joël Kofana.
The club hailing from Yaoundé thus climb back up to 10th position, while Tiko, who have not yet garnered a single win this season, vegetate at the bottom of the log.
Not a single goal was scored in Sunday’s two other encounters.
Aigle de la Menoua were held to a draw at home in Dschang by Njalla Quan, while Renaissance managed to garner a little point during their away game in Bamenda against YOSA.
Ngoumou’s men are not looking any better at the bottom of the league standings alongside Tiko United.
Three Day 5 matches were postponed due to Unisport, Union de Douala and Astres’ participation in continental competitions.
