Constant pressure was mounted by LION BLESSE’ for the remainder of the first half but power forward, Lionel William missed a few chances together with Tresor Romaris. The chances came back to hunt them in the second half.
The second segment was much more like it for the men in yellow and green stripes of YAFOOT. Captain Michel Mbengue was winning all the duels from the middle of the park on air and on land for his YAFOOT side.
Center-forward Hedmon Ongba for YAFOOT missed a one on one chance at the 50th minute, before a great improvisation from Cedric Vincent with a curler way outside the box gave YAFOOT the equaliser.
