Option Sports Academy of Limbe have beaten Eding Sports of the Lekie 1-0 to book their place at the round of 16 of the ongoing Cup Of Cameroon.
The Limbe base side failed to qualify for the mini inter pool this year, after two straight league defeats to Victoria United and Best Stars Academy. Their attention has now been shifted to the cup of Cameroon, with an impressive win over Unisports of Haut-Nkam in the round of 64.
The second test for them was Eding Sports of Lekie at the round of 32, which they smash them 1-0 to book their place in the round of 16.
Fils Asang’s 30 minutes goal was enough to see the Limbe base side defeat the 2018 cup of Cameroon winners, as they move to the next phase of the competition.
The boys of coach Stephane Ndzana had chances to get the equalizer and probably the winner, as they missed two penalties in the second half: Captain, Jean Louis Nnomo missed the first for Eding and substitute, Marcel Batai missed the second penalty as they could not beat goalkeeper Festus Ebere.
The win for Option Sports means they have now beaten two previous champions of Cameroon: defeated Unisport of Haut-Nkam 1-0 who were champions in 2012, and now it’s 2018 Winners Eding.
Option Sports Academy will now take on Ecole Football Brasseries Du Cameroon during Cameroon in the round of 16.
