PWD social football club of Bamenda and Yong Sports Academy (YOSA) shall be heading into day seven of the ongoing Elite One championship in Cameroon ranked second in their respective pools.
Enter PWD Bamenda
PWD Bamenda opened their account in fine-form in Limbe as they humbled YAFOOT FC 3-1. The Abakwa Boys though reduced to 10 after goalkeeper Sombang Eduard was red carded gave a good account of themselves at the centenary stadium; a venue some diehards call "home."
Before the first 45mins elapsed, "Ngia P" was already up by two thanks to a 10th minute own goal by John Efufa and John Paul Nzo Ngong 35'. Junior Mbeleck pulled back one at the 65th minute but that was not good enough against a "wild" PWD that needed just a win. Brilliant Awahmukala who will later emerge man of the match made matters worst for YAFOOT FC coming from his left back position to get the third for the Abakwa Boys at the 65th minute.
The current Cameroon Cup title holders will on Saturday go heads on with their group leaders Eding FC with the hope of holding on to the second place. Eding FC leads the pool with 16points followed by PWD with 11.
Despite dropping a point on match day six in a virgin draw with resilient APEJES de Mfou, YOSA is still comfortably sitted on the second spot in Pool A; a position they have held for two match days.
Coach Nkabyo Martin's men have remained unbeaten this season and hope to keep their record clean as they face Djiko FC on Friday 8 April at the Douala reunification stadium. Ranked 2nd with 13points after Canon Yaounde with 15, YOSA hopes to either maintain their position or take the driving seat should te opportunity provides itself.
"Coach Nkabyo Martin makes public his squad list to face Djiko FC of Bandjoun in Day 7 of the Elite One Championship.He has called up for the first time three midfielders Kamale Yannick and Obiang Willy while re-enforcing his attack line with Belkink Zemenjou Dibong."
