Football - Cameroon Guinness Women Super League: Awa Filles crowned champions

The first women's football season in the professional echelon in Cameroon has come to an end. The Guiness Women Super League has seen its complete season come to a finish without many hitches and definitely a new champion.

AWA Filles have been crowned champions of the Guinness Super League after their two – nil win against multiple league winners Amazones FAP over the weekend. A tough competition with great revelations, goals and excitement, the championship title was only decided on the last day of play.

It had to come right down to the wire in the final 45 minutes.

After a barren first half, it took goals from Angan Bilong from a set piece, and a sumptuous finish from Guinness Super League second highest goal scorer – Brenda Tabe, to put a gloss on the season.

The second goal was Tabe’s 15th of the season, and for a second time, she ended runner-up in the scorers chart.

This is the club’s second silverware since their creation in 2015.

They won the Cameroon Cup under the stewardship of present coach Hassan Ibrahim in 2018, beating Caiman Filles two – nil.

Awa Filles have beaten the odds this season and were able to eclipse the likes of  Louves Minproff, Amazones FAP and many others to finish champions.

Last season, AWA ended runner-up to Louves Minproff as they missed the chance to represent Cameroon in the TotalEnergies Women’s champions league.

It is their second title win in six years of the club's existence.

All the heartbreak now seems a thing of the past, as AWA ended with 56 points in 22 games played.
