Mamelodi Sundowns Win CAF Women’s Champions League Title

Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies FC beat Ghanaian side Hasaacas Ladies 2-0 to win inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League on Friday night.

The South Africans made the earlier promise from a well-weighted corner-kick seven minutes in, but Lelona Daweti was only able to find the side-netting from an awkward angle.

Another smart opportunity went the way of Sundowns later on through Andisiwe Mgcoyi’s run in from the right-side but the subsequent shot flew wide of the bottom-corner.

Hasaacas enjoyed no cool-off from Ghanaians who midway through the first half saw Thalea Smdti head Lerato Kgasago.

Sundowns opened their scoring on 32nd minute courtesy of  Morifi Chuene who sent a low finish from close-range past Grace Buodou.

Antwi Regina nearly gave Sundowns a scare on the 40th minute after being played through on goal, but goalkeeper Andile Dlamini was on hand to deny Hasaacas’s top scorer.

Hassacas should’ve scored an equalizer on the 55th minute but Azumah Bugre failed to direct her header on target while CBessings could not profit from the rebound moments later.


On the hour mark, Hasaacas had a rare attempt as Evelyn Bandu picked the ball up 35 yards out and almost curled the ball into the top-left corner but it grazed the outside of the upright.

Chuene Morifi had a chance to grab his brace. Dawet iput a dangerous  free-kick in towards the far post, where Smidtwas lurking. Kgasagomade an uncharacteristic error as she missed it but Cheune couldn’t turn home.

Sundowns upped the momentum and they got their second on the 62nd minute courtesy Andisiwe Mgcoyi from a deep-rooted through pass from Daweti.

The South Africans were reduced to ten players two minutes before the end of the match after second-half substitute Regina hacked Hasaacas attacker and such earned her marching orders.
