  • ISOHSA and Mintack won their quarterfinals matches to reach a first-ever semi-final while Colombe make it to the semi-final for a second season in succession and Aigle for the first time since 2008
  • Canon, Fortuna, Mbalmayo FC and Panthere fell in the quarter-final
  • The semi-final matches will be played this weekend in Yaoundé

The four quarter-final matches of the 2024 Cup of Cameroon played last Sunday in Douala and in Melong produced some astonishing results as favourites Canon and AS Fortuna were eliminated by underdogs.

The next episode of the huge surprised package of this edition of the competition unfounded before the eyes of over one thousand football fans who watch second-tier side ISOHSA of Limbe crawl back from a 0-1 deficit to eliminate record winners Canon of Yaoundé.

The interesting meeting of the two Elite clubs finished on a 2-1 score in favour of the Elite 2 club – thus amounting to the elimination of 12-time cup winners Canon in the last eight and extend their cup drought to 25 years.

Elsewhere in Yaoundé, Center region outfit, Mintack FC pipped AS Fortuna of the MTN Elite One championship by 1-0 to end the former’s brilliant run in the competition and become the first Regional League side to reach the semi-final of the Cup of Cameroon since Victoria United FC of coach Joseph Mbock Maput in 2017.

ISOHSA’s Mbock Maput who has joined a rare college of coaches to take two clubs to the semi-final was also in charge of that Victoria United FC back then.

Another surprise of the day was the elimination of Mbalmayo FC. Their run in the competition had given them the favourite tag before the start of their game against Aigle of Menoua. The armateur club from the Center Regional championship of FECAFOOT eliminated Elite One trio APEJES, Dynamo and beat Astres 3-0 to get to the quarter-final.

Unfortunately, Mbalmayo were undone by a brace from Nelson Moukeu and a goal from experienced Bangwen Frederick who also won the Cup of Cameroon in 2017 with New Stars of Douala.

Elsewhere, Colombe’s 12 minute penalty was enough for the South Region outfit to dump Panthere out of the competition and secure a second consecutive semi-final appearance.

Colombe extend their run without conceding to four cup matches going into the semi-final.

The results puts Mintack and ISOHSA through to their first-ever semi-final appearance while Aigle and Colombe who have experienced that before reappear in it hoping to get a a better souvenir.

The pre-planned road to the final puts ISOHSA up against Colombe Dja while Aigle of Menoua grind ashes against Mintack for a place in the prestigious final.
