Yong Sport Academy Beats Canon to Win 54 Edition of Cameroon Cup

 The finals of the Cameroon Cup took place at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in the presence the Head of
State, President Paul Biya. The match beating Yong Sport Academy of Bamenda alias YOSA against Canon of Yaounde was a clash of the titans.
After 90 minutes of play, both teams recorded no goal. Canon 0 - Yong Sport 0. 
There was no test for extensions of 2 x 15 minutes because, apparently, the lack of appropriate lighting at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaoundé obliged match officials to decide other wise.  Both teams therefore went directly to the ordeal of the penalty shootout. The players of Yong Sport were perfect in their kicks and the final score, Canon of Yaounde 1-Yong Sport Academy 4. 
It should be recalled that this was the first participation of Yong Sport at the Final of Cameroon Cup. More so, Yong Sport qualified after beating JMS of Loum in the semi-final. Created in 2004, Yong Sport Academy moved to Division One in the 2008-2009 Interpools and since then had always found itself in the leading first 7 clubs in the country. Francis Yong, President/Founder of Yong Sport has been applauded by the population of Bamenda and the entire North West Region after the brilliant win.
