At 90minutes, the score line situation was zero goal on either sides. This Virgin tie gives UBa and Douala 4 points each but UBa qualifies with a 1 goal difference. UBa stands at the second position as Ngoundere’s victory over SUP’PTIC sent them to the First position with 6points
At the end of the match, coach Anumewa Frankline and team captain Enowngene for UBa re-echoed their determination to win a gold medal in that category.

UB was placed in group B made up of 3 members only; UB, Yde II and IUC. after UB’s loss to IUC on Saturday 4, they were left with no option than to defeat the University of Yaounde 2 should they dream of staying in the game.
