Astres Football Club of Douala managed a 2-1 victory over neighbors Leopard Sportif of Douala on match day 13 of the Cameroon League 2.
Coach Anicet Mbarga Foe made just two changes to the side that separated on a parity with Matelots on match day 12.
The both teams canceled each other out and fans had to wait patiently for the second half for any goalmouth actions.
The first chance fell to Leopard in the second half as Thierry Sama teed up Hamadou Zapha whose shot went harmlessly wide at the 47th minute.
Then followed captain Didier Tchinda who made long strides unperturbed before striking straight into the chest of goalkeeper Giles Emmanuel who parried out for a corner.
As an outcome of the corner, Astres Football Club raised the curtain with a simple tap-in from close range by Julien Kamta at the 59th minute
The game then opened up and Leopard Sportif of Douala replied almost immediately with a 62nd minute goal from Thierry Sama being led in by Paul Rodrigue Nyame.
When it looked like everything was set for a parity tie, a cross from Eric Enjenwe that looked simple on the eye to deal with was messed up by the Leopard Sportif defence and Abena Messina was there to make it 2-1 at the 81st minute for Astres.
The victory is Astres Football Club’s first on the patch of the Molyko Omnisport stadium and moves them up to 15 points.
