Guinness Women’s Super League: Ngah Manga shines as Amazon FAP thrash Canon in derby to extend unbeaten run

• Amazon FAP top the chart with nine points and fifteen goals in three outings. 

• Canon Filles are winless in their last three games. They’ve grabbed one points on nine available. 

Amazon FAP beat visiting Canon Filles 3-0 in the centre regional derby to extend their run of three games unbeaten and consolidate their lead at the top of the Guiness Super League. 

Brigette Omboudou netted a controversial penalty to hand the league one giants the lead at the break while Catherine Mbengono and Ngah Manga both scored and assisted each other to seal a win and confirm their supremacy at the top.

The host gained control of the game from kick off and greatly dominated the start of the encounter leaving no space for their rivals. However, they failed to open scores early enough despite a litany of goal scoring opportunities. 

Amazon’s Catherine Mbengono missed the chance to open scores from a free kick which had beaten the keeper but was slightly off target. She later headed from Ysis Sonkeng’s free kick but missed target still. 

More misery was inflicted on Canon Filles who got their breakthrough from Brigitte Omboudou’s converted spot kick after a foul on Mana Lamine. 

Ngah Manga almost increased tally seconds later but Canon’s keeper Merveille Blonde clapped the ball away nicely. Manga also missed an open header from a well curled ball. Catherine Mbengono capitalized from a loose ball in Canon’s defence but here mild touch on the ball was blocked by Canon’s keeper with utmost assurance. 

Canon had some few moments of pure magic with some reawakening before the break but their efforts were rendered fruitless by a resilient FAP defence and their lack of decent finishes.  Twice had the team gone beyond unperturbed FAP’s keeper Annette Flore Ngo Ndom did they fail to hit target. 

Canon returned from the break much more determined to overturn their first half misfortunes. 

Sandrine Ndohmen almost took Annette Ngo Ndom unaware with a low long range strike and team mate Raissa Nnanga  fired from close range but failed to beat keeper this time on her guard. 

Omboudou was close to scoring a brace for Amazon FAP but a timely intervention from Merveille Blonde saved her team from conceding a second. Blonde made another remarkable safe against Ngah Manga who raced on despite calls for off side. 

She compensated for her form by assisting Catherine Mbengono who slotted in from an itch perfect pass. Both players subsequently reversed roles with Mbengono assisting Manga for an easy tap in for a third. 

 Amazon FAP are poised to clinch this year’s women’s domestic league championship and eventually represent the Cameroon at the inaugural CAF Women’s champions League.
