- Tabe Brenda scored her first Brace this season in the 3-1 win
- It is Lekie Filles’ second win in three Guinness Super League games this season
Defending Guinness Super League champions, Lekie Filles were comfortable 3-1 winners against Éclair of Sa’a in the delayed match day three fixture this Sunday at the Olembe Annex stadium.
Tabe Brenda scored twice while Marly Confidence Gah got the other goal to reduce Ernestine Heutchouo’s effort to a consolation goal.
Having missed the opening two games of the season because of her national team commitment, Tabe returned to coach Stephane Ndzana’s starting XI for Lekie and created instant impact in the week her strike partner, Ngah Manga Gisele Divine moved to Europe.
Brenda put the hosts ahead early in the game, rewarding the champions for their early dominance against coach Francis Koloko’s team.
It was soon 2-0 when Marly in only her second start at her new club put the ball beyond Cathy Biya with whom she shared the same dressing room last season. The goal against her former employer meant a lot for the forward who struggled for game time last season at Éclair.
Just when Lekie Filles thought it was going to be a walk in the park, Heutchouo pulled one back to make it 2-1 after 33 minutes.
However, Lekie remained steadfast and won the clash of the big guns through an assurance goal from Tabe who made sure the champions reigned supreme.
It finished 3-1 for the 2023 Guinness Super League winners though the game could have provided more goals if finishing from both sides was a little better.
The result meant Éclair that finished runners-up to Lekie last season have only won one game this campaign while Lekie counts two victories in three outings.
Tabe’s brace is the first this season for the full Cameroon international.
