Best Stars Academy has qualified for the next stage of the ongoing qualifiers for the 32nd finals of the Cup of Cameroon. The team from Limbe had qualified through a penalty shootout (4-3) against a strong Prison FC at the Tiko Town Green Stadium on Sunday.
Both sides headed into the game after having a series of friendly encounters. For Prisons, the team had a friendly encounter against Istanbul FA, which they ended up losing.
It was Prisons FC who took the lead around the 8mins mark through Ekema. The goal gave the side the momentum as they pushed forward for a second.
Best Stars then slowly found their foot in the game and at the 21mins got their equalizer. A beautiful play by the boys of Djeufack Saturin saw Nsogha Yves scoring for the side.
That goal saw the momentum swing in favour of Best Stars as they mounted the pressure. The team almost took the lead but goalkeeper Nsame was up to the task, saving the team on countless occasions with the team heading to half time 1-1.
The second half began almost like the first but this time it was Best Stars on the offensive. The team that up till now had not played a competitive game had a series of chances in the second half to take the lead but their strikers could not deliver as prisons mounted a strong defensive line. Both sides could not be separated as after 90mins of play it was 1-1.
Prisons FC at penalty shootout missed two of their kicks while Best Stars missed one, allowing the latter to qualify for the next stage of the qualifiers.
