Dragon FC of Yaoundé have scored twice from the penalty spot in the final 16 minutes to snatch an unlikely draw against defending champions PWD in an exciting Elite One clash at the CAF Excellence center in Mbankomo-Cameroon.
A slightly-changed PWD failed to win for the fourth time in four games with a goalless draw against Avion Academy, but with Coach David Pagou reverting to his first-choice side, the hosts unsurprisingly dominated the early stages.
Even with Nchindo John Bosco just returning from injury, PWD were incisive in the Dragon half, and young forward Francis Eyengue opened scores in the 40th minute when Nchindo John Bosco somehow sliced wide the Dragon backline to play him in.
With PWD leading 1-0 the hosts struggle to find their groove as PWD took control of the game.
Haschou Kerrido made a pair of timely interventions to deny his former club.
At the break, it was one-nil for the visitors.
PWD returned for the second segment looking more determined to get another goal though Dragon Yaoundé had their moments from the break.
Nchindo John Bosco netted the second in the 70th minute when he beat goalkeeper Yindui Mohamed making it two-nil for the visitors.
Four minutes later the the home side’s five minutes dominance was finally rewarded when they were given a penalty after Roche was fouled in the box. He got up and whipped a fine dipping effort past Haschou from the spot.
The defending champions pressed for an insurance goal, but wasted a pair of chances before Dragon equalized in the 82nd minute after the restart when defender MAKEMBE Gatien Fernandinho drill home a second penalty to make it 2_2 completing a shock late comeback with eight minutes to go.
Sloppy defending has caused the Abakwa Boys two points.
PWD have picked up seven points from five games winning just once this term to occupy the fifth spot.
Dragon on their path are eighth with six points from five games this season.
PWD are away to Djiko FC this weekend while Dragon confront struggling Eding Sport de la Lekie.
