APEJES of Mfou have dropped two points away from home in an exciting match-day eight Elite One championship game this Wednesday in Yaounde.
The visiting side dominated the encounter in Bafoussam and could have gone home with all three points if not for a 96th minute equalizer from the host.
Midfield Maestro Nelson Moukeu and winger Akoh Calistus starred for APEJES in an exciting match-day eight game.
APEJES came into the fixture in confidence having lost just one if their previous five games and won in their last outing while Panthere was on a mission to bounce back from their 4-0 bashing in the last game against YOSA.
The quick fire encounter produced moments of highlights in the first 15 minutes with both sides.
Phillipe Bertin Essama put the host ahead in the 13th minute, rewarding Panthere for their early dominance.
APEJES of Mfou came close to leveling scores twice but failed until the 35th minute when former New Stars of Douala and Eding Sport de la Lekie midfielder Nelson Moukeu scored his second goal of the season to make it 1-1.
Though there were chances for both sides in the final ten minutes of the half, the scores remained at 1-1 till the break.
Coach Ndongo Emma galvanized his side at the break and they returned for the second segment on the front-foot.
APEJES scored their second through winger Akoh Calistus who tamed the defensive set up put in place by the host to restore the one goal advantage nine minutes into the second segment.
Panthere took control of the game from then on as APEJES retreated in an attempt to hold what they had.
The host however waited till the 97th minute when forward Bokagne scored the equalizer beating Dande Junior with a fine effort to deny three points to Yengui Vitalis and co.
APEJES may feel they dropped two points, havin conceded late but to an extent they picked up a point on the road in a championship which points are hard to get.
APEJES are currently ranked third in the championship with 12 points from 7 games while Panthere are second-seeded with 13 points from eight games.
Panthere are away to Astres of Douala in match-day 9 while APEJES host TKC.
