Guinness Super League: Louves minproff overpowers Éclair to go top

Louves minproff of Yaoundé have defeated Éclair FC of SA’A 2#0, in a day five game of the Cameroon women’s league.

Goalkeeper Ange Bawou was vigilant enough to stop Marie Laure Kong from scoring an own goal, in an attempt to defend a dead ball from Eclair just 10 minutes into the game.

Colette Ndzana, and Nourat Mégane were at the center of every action, as Eclair FC dominated proceedings in the first quarter of the game.

Eclair’s starting XI vs Louves minproff

Continuous pressure from Eclair saw Louves minproff committing several faults in their own vital zone. At the 20th minute of play, Fatima Kome came close to giving Eclair the lead, but her shot went narrowly away from Ange Bawou’s goal post.

Half an hour into the game, Ghislaine Nkou wasted a golden opportunity to punish Eclair, as she could not make good use of Ngo Mback Batoum’s well worked cross from the left flank.

Louves minproff’s Alice Maffo was the first player to get into the referee’s books.

Eclair’s excellent first half was undone, when Colette Ndzana handled the ball in her penalty box, in an attempt to clear a Louves corner kick. Ornella Noelle Touta stepped forward and slotted the ball pass Goalkeeper Michaely Bihina, to give Louves minproff a one goal lead at the break.

At the start of the second half, coach Kpoumie Mvu Oudou sacrificed Alice Maffo and brought on Cameroonian International, Charlene Meyong.

Goalkeeper Michaely Bihina was called to action immediately, as she pulled two stunning saves in the first five minutes of the second segment to prevent Louves from increasing tally.

Coach Francis Kolokou reacted by bringing in Blandine Engolo and Angeline Ewondo, in the place of Doly Wabeau Diane and Nourat Mégane respectively.

At the 53rd minute, Louves initiated a quick counter which Ghislaine Nkou finished off expertly, to put Louves two goals up.

Eclair’s third sub saw Natasha Dong Bella, ceding her place to Marie Victoire Ngono.

Goalkeeper Ange Bawou was shown yellow for time wasting, same too as her teammate Vanessa Noelle Kiomegne for bad tackle.

Louves stayed sold throughout the remainder of the game, recording their fourth win in five games.

The Victory now puts defending Champions, Louves minproff temporarily at the top of the League’s table with 13 points, while awaiting the results of the games AS AWA FF vs Vision sports and Ebolowa FC vs Amazone FAP, scheduled for Sunday and Monday respectively.
