Louves Minproff of Yaoundé has recorded a narrowly 1#0 win over Amazone FAP, in the top match of game week nine of Cameroon’s Guinness super League. The game was played on Saturday afternoon, at the Annex one Stadium in Yaoundé.
Amazone FAP came into the game on a run of eight straight wins since the start of the season, and were on course to making it nine.
Linda Ngatchou had the first chance of the game for Amazone FAP just five minutes after kick-off, but failed to loop the ball pass Goalkeeper Ange Bawou.
Both sides failed to impose their playing style in a rather insipid first half. Rita Wanki of FAP and Louves Minproff’s captain, Charlene Meyong Menene were booked late in the first half, for unsporting behaviors.
League’s top scorer, Catherine Mbengono hit the woodworks late on, to sanction a lacklustre first half.
15 minutes after the pause [65 minute], Charlene Meyong Menene hit the back of the net, but her goal was ruled out, following a refereeing controversy between Ngo Biem Marie Joséphine and her first assistant, Bahida Jacky Sandra.
Louves Minproff stepped up their tempo in the last quarter of the game and their efforts paid off at the 87 minute, when a Charlene Meyong goal bound shot deflected off Brigitte Yvana Mbomozomo, and send Annette Ngo Ndom the wrong way.
A 1#0 win for Louves Minproff and an end to Amazone FAP’s eight match winning steak. Louves therefore takes command at the top of the league standings, with 25 points, one point ahead of Amazone FAP, and two better than AWA.
Saturday’s game was the 11th top flight confrontation between both sides, with Louves Minproff now recording six wins, two for Amazone FAP and three draws.
“we won this game because we put in lots of efforts in our play. The match was difficult, but I and my teammates, we stayed solid. The stakes too were high, so we wanted to win and go top of the table and we’re there”, Louves Minproff’s captain Charlene Meyong Menene told the media.
