ASEC Mimosas maintains its pressure and ZEZE Serge gets down in the penalty area. The referee points to the penalty spot. SINGONE Tosséta shoots and scores (1-0; 14′). The WAC reacts on a kOUTCHE Kabirou cross at the second post which is sent back by the left post of BAMBA Aboubakar (24′). The Williamsville team doesn’t go out of its way. His midfielder DAGROU Djédjé escapes the marking of the mimosas defence, but his shot from the left at ground level is caught by BAMBA Aboubakar (37′). The Williamsville Red and White continue to push for the fault. They are close to finding it when their striker KOUTCHE Kabirou, well served in the penalty area, controls the leather and shoots, but misses the frame of the goal (42′). Half-time came on the score of 1-0 in favor of ASEC Mimosas.

On the resumption, ASEC Mimosas cornered the WAC and managed to double the mark thanks to SAKO Oumar who took a deflection of the head of ZEZE Serge Eric following a free kick well fired by POKOU Serge (64′). The WAC has pride and fights for a penalty that transforms CHENENE Jerry to reduce the score (2-1; 25′). The game comes alive.
