Yong sport academy of Bamenda has recorded their first win in six games, since Thomas Ayuketang Kome took over as interim coach. The Bamenda outfit edged Fovu club of Baham 1#0 in Bamenda in one of day 16 games of the league one championship, thanks to a first half penalty from Brandon Moukete, his third goal of the season.
Before coming in to the game, YOSA was on a run of five winless games, since Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso left the team, and was replaced on interim basis by former goalkeepers trainer, Thomas Ayuketang Kome. In their last five games, YOSA had managed just four draws and one defeat. The victory against fovu came as a relieve to the management and fans of the team, who are bent of picking a ticket for the playoffs.
However, YOSA continued to get in to the black books of the referees, as they picked up their fifth red card of the season, when Chadian midfielder, Romeo Otodibaye was shown red, alongside Fovu’s Maurice Christian Ohandja, when they went into an open confrontation. YOSA had previously had red cards against Astres in Limbe, two against Unisport in Melong, and against UMS, in Loum. With five red cards received this far, YOSA looks to be the most indiscipline team, a record which is not characteristic of the Bamenda boys.
Speaking to reporters after his first win, YOSA’s caretaker manager, Thomas Ayuketang Kome said “I’m very satisfied because since I took charge of the team, this was my sixth match, and my first win coming on home ground, makes me happy. It was long awaited. We will continue working hard for our next games”
The win keeps YOSA of the fourth place with 19 points, while Fovu officially confirmed their relegation playoff spot, as they tail the team with 11 points. YOSA stays at home on Wednesday, to host struggling Astres of Douala, as Kome eyes his second win.
