A well organized, disciplined and determined CINYODEV FA side trampled on a 10 man Prisons FC alias the Home Boys in their own backyard.
The first half of the match saw the boys in green dominating Prisons, and opening the goal tally in the early minutes. Coach Ntui’s boys remained patient as they forced the goalkeeper of Prisons to be given the marching orders. Going for the break, Fon Calvin, Frankline Tangiri, Cyrille Nguindjel were on the score sheet putting the score at 3-0. The home boys were forced to do a double job with one man.
The second half saw the coaches of both clubs clash at the touchline. CINYODEV kept knocking to increase the goal margin but met a stiff resistance from the 10 man of Prisons. The quests for more goals forced some of Coach Ben Ntui’s boys to work extra-hard, but were found wanting. Emmanuel Agbor, Tonga Ngale were yellow-carded. This would not hinder the CINYODEV boys as they finally broke the resistance put up by the home boys, when Cyrille Nguindjel got a brace for himself and increased the score to 4-0 before full time.
Atlantic Chronicles gathered from coach Wose of Prisons that nothing went wrong with his players, “they accepted to play in order not to be defeated by forfeiture.” He blames the bureau for bringing referees who have no knowledge about the game. “A club can lose a match and become champion of his pool and even move to the next stage. You can remember last year, before the end of the first round we were bottom of our pool but we went on to play the mini Inter-pools.
Speaking to the coach of CINYODEV, Ben Ntui, about his appraisal of the game and the ambitions of the club he said “I am glad my children respected the instructions given to them. It is not our fault that the other team had one man down, but we respect them though we won. Our first objective is to qualify for the mini inter-pools and the 16finals of the cup of Cameroon.
