After their first victory, the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon won the second leg of their test match against the women's Stallions of Burkina Faso by a score of 35-3 at the 4 August Stadium in Ouagadougou on 12 June 2021. This test match was eagerly awaited by the two teams who were hoping to surpass themselves.
It was at 16:00 GMT that the Senegalese central referee, Bineta Sene, gave the kick-off after the national anthems of Cameroon and Burkina Faso resounded in the stadium. In the 4th minute, the Cameroonian n°2, Irène Laure Fandio Ngasso, opened the score with a try. Afterwards, No. 6 Marlyse Teclaire got an unconverted try. In the first half, the score was 15-0 in favour of Cameroon. In the second half, Cameroon maintained their domination over the Stallions.
As in the first test match, the Stallions did not score any tries. The only penalty that gave them 3 points came in the 44th minute. After showing more resilience than the first test match, Burkina Faso finally lost to Cameroon by a final score of 35-3. This score is roughly equal to that of the first test match where Cameroon won by 37-0. There was no shortage of fouls in this game. Both teams received yellow cards. These were for Cameroon's No. 11, Mimosette Mouto, and Burkina Faso's No. 3 Bonkoungou Janine and No. 18 Adjaratou Yanogo.
The captain of the Burkinabe team, Yvette Sawadogo, acknowledged that she and her teammates played differently in this second match. According to her, the difference lay in the control of their fear against the physically imposing Cameroonian team. It should be noted that there was also a greater mobilization of Burkina Faso supporters in the stands and this was undoubtedly in favor of Burkina Faso. The fans wearing black uniforms helped to heat up the stadium with their galvanizing shouts. Cameroon coach Jacques NGomsu Tchon Lahui said his side faced difficulties because "they were different opponents from the first game". For Cameroon's vice-captain, Priso Rosine Maxime Ndingo, her team did not fully respect the coach's instructions.
