Panthere sportive of Nde has defeated APEJES of Mfou 1#0, in Match day one of the 2019/2020 football season.
Panthere had the first attempt of the game at the ninth minute, through Philippe Bertin Essama, but his shot went narrowly wide. APEJES struggled to created any meaningful chance for over half an hour, as a purposeful Panthere put them in all sorts of difficulties.
Abel Grace Makani commanded the APEJES back line beautiful, as they thwarted all incursions from Panthere. 34 minutes on, panthere’s Yaya Ahmadou was brought down in APEJES box, but despite cries for a penalty, referee Chehou Amadaou waved play on.
APEJES had their first shot on target 36 minutes into the game, when Calistus Anjeh’s shot was well saved by debuting goalkeeper, Fru Anye Derick. APEJES captain Yerima Issa Bouhari was the first player to get into the referee’s books, after a nasty challenge on his opponent. All attempts from both sides to get an opener before the break, were fruitless.
