Canon put a stop to Coton Sport
The Cotonculteurs got the match going right from the outset with a Jacques Haman strike on the 2nd minute, but the young striker sent the ball sailing too high.
Kpa Kum responded almost immediately, forcing Garoua’s international keeper to make a save on the number 8, Ngom Balonga’s attempt.
The locals continued to push and Loïc Feudjou had to pull out all the stops again to stop a powerful Atouba Emane strike on the 20th minute.
Coton took things back in hand at the end of the first half, but the two formations headed back to the cloakrooms at the break with nothing to show on the score board.
After a long interruption due to a downpour, the match got going again and it was Aboubakar Souleymanou’s men who found the weak spot just before the hour mark thanks to Ngom Balonga.
The Garoua crew thought they had found the equaliser less than ten minutes later, but Bapidi Fils was indicated off sides in his efforts.
It was only a matter of time before Bassamanin Mondombo scored the decider for the title holders right at the end of the encounter.
Robert Boivin’s team therefore maintain their first place, but remain within reach of Union and Unisport.
The two other clashes of the weekend saw Aigle Royal’s first win against Renaissance on Dschang soil, as well as the defeat of Sable de Batié at home against YOSA.
Menoua's Eagles thus escape the danger zone.
