The Indomitable Lionesses will be in the final of the 24th edition of the CAN Handball Women that they organize since June 8. In the semi-final, they got rid of a team of Congo who did not want to let go.
Very tight, this semi-final held all its promises in terms of intensity in the field. But finally this duel of the central Africa will turn to the advantage of the host country. The Cameroonians had to work hard to get out of the Congolese trap.
The gap of two points of the first part was even reduced by the Congolese girls. 12-10 at the break, the game finally ended on a score of 22-21. It must be said that this second semi-final is the twin of the first.
In the final, the Cameroonian girls will face the Angolan giant, the title holders and 13 times African champions.
