The two Cameroonian representatives at the CAF Confederation Cup, Cotonsport Garoua and Sable of Batie, yesterday faced each other at the Roumde Adja stadium in Garoua.
The Coton weavers of the North outplayed the "sand sand" boys of the West, 1 -0, to maintain their lead in Group B with 11 points. In the last Group match on November 14, Coton sport will travel to Ghana to face Hearts of Oak, while Sable will receive Santos FC of South Africa. The away leg final will take place on November 26 - 28 between Group B winners and Group A winners, while the return leg will be on December 11th between Group A winners and Group B winners.
In the other Group B match, Santos yesterday succumbed to Hearts of Oak 0-1 in Cape town, South Africa. According to the BBC, it took a moment of quick thinking in Cape Town's howling wind to keep alive Hearts of Oak's chances of progressing to next month's final of the Confederation Cup. Ghanaian international, Bernard Don Bortey, ensured all three points for the visitors when he hit a shot from the half-way line into the back of the net. The shot caught Santos' goalkeeper, Ryan West, off his line and, with the assistance of the strong breeze, sailed majestically over his head and into the back of the goal.
