Hienghène Sport and SC Ne Drehu clashed at Stade Numa Daly in Noumea to decide which team would lift the New Caledonia Cup’s trophy this year. In a very well-fought match, Hienghène had to work hard to beat his opponents in extra time.
SC Ne Drehu’s captain Mone Wamowé found the net in the eighth minute to open the scoreboard. Wamowé and his teammates almost managed to take this advantage to half-time, but Willy Yentao headed the ball into the net after a corner kick to equalize in the last act of the first half. The 1-1 draw remained until the end of the 90 minutes so the match went into the extra time.
Despite all efforts, SC Ne Drehu could not hold Hienghène Sport in the extra time as Yvanoe Bamy found the net in the first minute to put his side ahead. Bamy was on fire in the extra time and he scored his second goal of the day five minutes later after a defensive mistake.
It is the fourth time in history that Hienghène Sport has won the New Caledonia Cup – and it was their second consecutive title. They are also qualified for the seventh round of 2020-21 French Cup as New Caledonia is a French Territory. On the other hand, SC Ne Drehu also deserves applause for reaching the Cup final for the first time ever. You can check full information about 2020 New Caledonia Cup by clicking here.
