Eding Sport of Lekie scored a last-gasp penalty taken by Souley Badamassi to snatch a well-deserved draw against cross town rivals Dragon FC in an exciting Elite One clash at the CAF Excellence center in Mbankomo-Cameroon.
A slightly-changed Dragon Sport side failed to win again in a league match against Eding Sport in a game to forget as they came closest to their second win if the season.
Dragon who are on a good run this season though with fewer wins than deserved unsurprisingly dominated the early stages.
Dragon were incisive in the Eding half, and young forward Roche Foning opened scores in the 31st minute with a well-taken converted a penalty.
With the visitors leading 1-0, the hosts struggle to find their groove as Dragon took control of the game for the next five minutes.
Somehow against the run of play, Souley Badamassi took advantage of slight lapses in the Dragon defense to level matters.
At the break, it was 1-1 with a game promising more drama in the second segment.
Dragon returned for the second segment looking more determined to get another goal though Eding Sport had their moments from counter attacks.
Jules Rudy Binthou netted the second in the 70th minute when he beat the intelligence of the Eding Sport backline to make it 2_1 for the visitors.
The best chance of the remainder of the game fell to Eding but a brilliant Marc Ndome on goal for Dragon denied them a goal on multiple occasions.
In the four minutes of added time, the home side’s dominance was finally rewarded when they were given a penalty. Souley Badamassi whipped a fine dipping effort past the Mbahbi on Eding Sport goal to make it 2-2, completing a shock late comeback.
Sloppy defending from the Cha Cha Boys caused them two points.
Dragon who came from behind to rescue a point against PWD midweek are a victim of a similar situation.
Dragon on their part are eighth with seven points from five games this season.
Dragon face Djiko FC in match-day eight of the championship while Eding Sport are away to Avion Academy who recorded a 4-0 win this matchday 7.
