CotonSport back on top
13 December 2010
CotonSport moved to the summit of the MTN Elite 1 with a narrow 1-0 victory over Panthere in Goroua on Sunday.
The defending champions overtook Université at the top of the table after five rounds of the competition, taking their 2010/11 season record to four wins and one defeat.
Université were held to a 1-1 draw by newly-promoted Caiman Club, who continued their fine start to the season which also included a win over CotonSport.
Union Douala stay in third after their 1-0 away win at Yong Sport Academy, arguably the result of the round.
Canon moved up to fourth with a second straight victory, this time beating last year's runners-up Astres FC 3-1. Astres continue to struggle this season and have managed just a single victory from their five games to date.
Unisport will be disappointed with their home draw with newly-promoted Scorpion, though the latter remain unbeaten this season with a win and four draws. Along with Université, they are one of just two sides yet to taste defeat.
Sable condemned Lausanne to their fifth-straight defeat as they won 2-0, the newly-promoted side finding life in the top-flight tough.
Finally, Tiko United and Renaissance drew 1-1 to round out the weekend's fixtures. The next round of games takes place on December 19, before the teams take a three-week break over the festive season.
