Ayuk Lovelyn Heroine Of the Day, Football Girls Miss Out From Back To Back Final
Team UB had kept the fight, and are not giving up yet. They secured a silver medal in Paralympics one of their very first in the discipline.
The female football team failed to repeat their 2018 exploit and missed out from this year’s final.
But all hope is not lost,so does Team UB believes.
“This wasn’t just their year”
The female football team of the University of Buea lost to the university of Ngaoundere 0-1 in their semi final match in Bandjoun.
They have therefore failed to reach their second successive final after their first in 2018.
They picked up a qualification ticket on Wednesday after a remarkable comeback from 3-0 to beat Dschang 7-6 on Penalty.
“The girls are ready, the moral is high”- Coach Etoundi Owona
The University of Buea football girls will play the third position match on Friday against University of Bamenda with hopes to get bronze. The match is at 9:00am.
UB lost to UBa in their group game 2-1 and hope to settle score tomorrow.
“The Gladiators Can do Better”
The handball team of the University of Buea reached the 1/4 final of the varsity games despite losing their first two games to the University of Yaoundé I and Douala.
They failed to reach the semi finals and had plans to make amends during their classification matches.
The back to back gold medalist lost their 5th and 6th position match to Douala 30-35 at the Court B,Campus B.
This implies they finish 8th on the table this year.
“Lovelyn Breaks Paralympics Deadlock”
UB’s third silver medal came from team Paralympics with Ayuk Lovelyn in the female light weight category in powerlifting.
A well deserving medal from the Paralympic team after several attempts all void of success.
” The Gold Basket for team UB”
Wrestling is the only sport discipline as of now that has been able to produce two gold medals.
Blandine Ngiri in the 65 kg female wrestling event and Efonde in the 66 kg boys have done incredibly well.
They could have increased tally but fell to SUPPTIC in the semi final.
After the first round of fight,the wrestling girls were eliminated while the boys qualified for the quarter final.
They later made it to the semi final after a win over Douala but couldn’t reach the final.
They will compete for bronze medal on Friday.
