Sundowns Ladies Won First Ever CAF Women's Champions League Title

Sundowns ladies won first ever CAF women's Champions League title

Date: Friday, 19 November

The Sundowns ladies team impressed as they brought back home the first ever women's CAF Champions league title. Sundowns ladies qualified for the CAF Champions league which is the first instalment of the women's tournament to represent South Africa in Africa, and against all odds the ladies in Brazilian colours shocked the rest of the African ladies clubs as they did what the Mamelodi Sundowns men's club did and brought home the prestigious CAF Champions league trophy.

When the Mamelodi Sundowns ladies qualified for the women's CAF Champions league tournament, they were expected to be a challenge and do their best in the Continental tournament, but they did more than that as they won the tournament as they defeated one of Africa's best club's, Hasaacas Ladies FC who is a Ghana based outfit. In earlier reports and news headlines, Sundowns opponents Hasaacas is so good that clubs such as Barcelona ladies and PSG ladies are interested in some of their players.

Despite how good Hasaacas is and the interest from top clubs, Sundowns ladies looked past that and showed the Ghana side what they are really made of. Mamelodi Sundowns scored 2 stunning goals against the opposition without conceding in the final fixture of the tournament, and suffered a blow in the last minutes of second half injury time, as they lost Regina Mogolola to a red card in the 90+4 minute but luckily the match was already at its end.

Mamelodi Sundowns opened the scoring in the first half of the match when Chuene Morifi scored in the 33rd minute for the 1-0 lead in the match. Mamelodi Sundowns extended their lead to 2-0 when Andisiwe Mgcoyi scored in the 65th minute. Sundowns held onto their 2-0 lead and won the match with the same score at full-time. The ladies had the honour of lifting the first ever women's CAF Champions league title which will go down as a moment in history, and they are now the defending champions as well. Well done Sundowns Ladies for making South Africa proud.
