Leon Boyomo and Christian Degoue scored to hand Astre a 2-1 win over TKC away in Yaoundé-Cameroon in match-day six of the Cameroon Elite One championship.
Leon Boyomo scored for the second consecutive game in the championship as Anicet Mbarga Foe’s boys claimed a 2-1 victory over five times champions TKC on Saturday.
The intermediate Lions forward had struggled for form since arriving Astre but in match-day five he opened his goal account against Colombe Dja before following up this weekend with a typically clinical finish.
The host had their noses in front with a sumptuous half-volley from forward Yves Eloundou before Christian Degoue restored parity just before the break advantage after some poor defending by the host.
Late in the game, the visitors had a chance to score and Boyomo took the chance to make it 2-1.
A move which began at the back culminated in cross-field pass in Boyomo’s direction and he made it count.
The ball pinged around the edge of the area before dropping into the path of Boyomo , who steered a low shot into the corner of the net.
Atangana Ngandi’s side tried to find their way back into the game in the dying minutes but it was too little, too late.
The game ended on the 2-1 score in favour of the visitors.
What does it mean? Astre climb higher on the table ask TKC sinks
The Astre machine rolls on. After a 2-1 win over Colombe in match-day six, which saw the Brazilians end of their winless run. They tightened their grip on fourth spot while TKC move down to 7th.
For Astre head coach Anicet Mbarga Foe it has been a case of ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it’ and although his side lacked some of their usual swagger, they had too much quality for TKC.
Astres now have seven points to their credit and the clinical manner in which they are able to win games recently means they are going to take some stopping in the Elite One championship this season.
Boyomo sparkles again
Another game, another goal. Boyomo has been in form for the Brazilians in the past two games. And he shows no signs of letting up after being heavily criticized during the start of the season.
He was full of flicks and tricks, and scored a goal which owed much to his ability to shoot from improbable positions as the power he can generate with his shot.
Both sides will be involved in derbies in match-day eight as Astres face UMS in a Littoral derby while TKC challenge high-flying Canon-Yaounde.
