Elite 2 Championship: Foncha Street FC Beat Gazelle FA, Keep Hopes Alive
By Raymond Dingana
A hat trick from Ibrahim Nsoyuri and one goal from the penalty spot by Cheson Loibinyo were just enough to punish Gazelle FA 4-1.
Foncha Street's first two goals came in the first halve of the match counting for the 13 day of play of the Elite 2 Championship at the Bamenda University field.
The win for Foncha Street which is third in a row means the team's hopes of staying in the league 2 Championship are still in tact thereby waving a good bye to relegation.
For Gazelle, losing in Bamenda was not what they expected as their hopes of securing a league one ticket partly depended on a favourable outing in Bamenda.
A win in Bamenda would have placed Gazelle on a comfortable first position in group A currently in the hands of Lausanne FA with 26points. A win for Gazelle would have taken them to a 27 point lead.
As it stands, Gazelle FA still have hopes of playing in the superior league come next football season. The last remaining matches will decide.
Fans of Foncha Street FC despite the bitting cold stood firm and chaired their team to victory while visiting Gazelle suffered not only a 4-1 bashing but the lone red card of the match that was awarded to its head coach.
