Mamelodi Sundowns Win Inaugural Women's African Champions League In Cairo

50

Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies were crowned inaugural Caf Women’s Champions League winners after their 2-0 win over Hasaacas Ladies of Ghana at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo on Friday night. The victory means the South African club joins Spanish side Barcelona as the only football clubs to win the men's and women's Champions League titles on their respective continents. Sundowns Ladies secured this victory through a goal in each half by attackers Chuene Morifi and Andisiwe Mgcoyi, who was named the woman of the match, as they became the first team to lift this trophy. There were few notable chances during the opening exchanges as most of the action was in the midfield where Melinda Kgadiete, Lelona Daweti and Lerato Kgasago operated for Sundowns. The likes of Kgadiete, Daweti and Kgasago did not have it all their way as Faustina Aidoo, Evelyn Badu and Doris Boaduwaa proved to be tough competition in the midfield battle. On occasions they found themselves in the Sundowns danger area, Hasaacas Ladies threatened through Rahama Jafaru, Veronica Appiah and Antwi Regina but they could not beat Sundowns goalkeeper Andile Dlamini. Sundowns threatened through Andisiwe Mgcoyi, Bambanani Mbane and Chuene Morifi during the early stages but they could not get the better of Hasaacas Ladies goalkeeper Grace Buoadu. Sundowns Ladies opened the scoring after 32 minutes through a close range effort of Morifi who kissed the net after she connected with a well-taken cross from Mgcoyi. The Brazilians Ladies secured this match after 64 minutes when Mgcoyi, who supplied for the opening goal, turned finisher after she was released by a defence-splitting pass from Nonhlanhla Mthandi. In the closing stages, Dlamini produced a stunning diving save to deny Pepertual Agyekum from a free-kick that was taken outside the penalty box as Hasaacas Ladies tried to get back in the game. There was drama at the death when Sundowns substitute Regina Mogolola saw red for a dangerous tackle on Aidoo but it did not matter much as Sundowns Ladies had already secured this match
