The vice champions of the 2018 southwest regional league, the Catholic university sports academy have made long strides unimpeded and are at the moment edging EEMSA by a point in pole B after defeating MT Cameroon 2-0.
The path was clear for CUSA after Continental FA did them a favour by beating group ‘strong man’ EEMSA 3-2 in the first game at the Buea town stadium.
Coach Samuel Enobi had to put out a near handicapped side because of license issues, yet his back up strike force did him all the favours.
At the 19 minute of the game in a cold and windy stadium, CUSA drew first blood courtesy a shot out of the box from Ndando Robin at the 19th minute.
The nature of the pitch wasn’t helping matters at all with some bad tackles coming in.
MT Cameroon themselves played some flamboyant stuff and it almost came in handy when Kelvin Kang went down in the 18 yard box; the linesman had his flag up but after a chat with the referee the penalty appeal was waved away.
Veteran player-manager Mutia Jonathan was on his toes for chunks of the game for MT Cameroon and his experience came in handy when he had a vital goal line clearance at the 40th minute from a Fabrice Atangana shot.
The second half was fast as furious for the both sides; one fighting for the leveller and the other fighting to increase tally.
After minutes of back and forth, the game became even more interesting when Farbress Ebai went into a tackle two footed and CUSA was reduced to 10 men.
After waves of attacks by MT Cameroon, CUSA with their never die attitude won a penalty with just 6 minutes to go and center forward, Ndando completed his brace to hand CUSA all 3 points.
Coach Samuel Enobi was full of praises “we thank God and the leader of this team who is father George. We do not only train players but train future footballers and leaders of tomorrow. I am happy because the children during this second round have composed themselves and shown me they can do it”.
The win changes the classification table on it’s head and put’s CUSA on the top of group B with 16 points.
