Cameroon suffer third defeat
Cameroon have ended their 2012 London Olympics Women’s Tournament on a low note with a 3-1 loss to New Zealand in their final pool match on Tuesday.
The West Africans have ended the pool stages with the worst record of all the women’s sides, having lost three of their games in the competition, conceding 11 goals in the process.
They did at least manage a goal against the Kiwis, Gabrielle Onguene getting a consolation when the scoreline was already 3-0.
Rebecca Smith and Sarah Gregorius scored for New Zealand, along with an own goal from the unfortunate Ysis Sonkeng.
New Zealand booked their place in the knockout stages with the win as one of the two best third-place finishers and will play the USA in the next round.
