Cameroon - Elite One (D18): Canon beat Coton Sport to deepen Garoua's crisis

How laborious it was! Canon Sportif de Yaoundé suffered but held on until the end, to overcome Coton Sport of Garoua (1-0) Sunday, March 26. It was on the 18th day of the Cameroonian soccer championship. Cotonsport came into the game from a narrow 1-0 win over djiko in their previous game. The victory seemed to put the defending champions back on track but Canon had other plans.

In this derby at the top, Paul Henri Tchinkeu scored the only goal of the game before the hour of play (57th). It allows Canon to consolidate its leadership position in Group A. While the opposing club, third in the group, adds another setback to its series of eight defeats in nine consecutive games, all competitions. This seemingly was the stroke on the camel's back as angry supporters of the Garoua club could be seen ranting outside in front of the team's bus after Sunday's defeat.

Without Kaïba Djawal announced missen by the club, Eric Moursou in training with the selection of under 23 years and Patient Wassou withdrawal due to illness, Coton Sport did not let themselves ridiculed. On the contrary. The defending champion of Cameroon showed a good face throughout the game but failed to score an equalizer as Canon's keeper Mbaynaissem spared no effort to keep his cage save.
