Banyana Successfully Defend COSAFA Cup

COSAFA Women's Champions 

Result: Cameroon 1-2 South Africa 

Date: 22 September 2018

Venue: Isaac Wolfson Stadium
 
Banyana Banyana have successfully defended their COSAFA Women's Championship title after defeating Cameroon 2-1 in the final.
 
The South Africans secured their spot in the final after defeating Uganda 2-0 on Thursday afternoon.
 
Desiree Ellis' charges had a couple chances in the opening 15 minutes, with striker Jermaine Seoposenwe failing to beat Ngo Fiore on both occasions.
 
Banyana continued to dominate, while Cameroon barley threatened goalkeeper Kaylin Swart throughout the first stanza.
 
The deadlock was eventually broken three minutes before the break, with Refiloe Jane finding the back of the net with an impressive strike from distance.
 
Cameroon hit back after the hour mark as Banyana failed to clear their lines, allowing Mbeleck slot past Swart, 1-1.
 
However, Banyana left it late once again as Jane bagged her second goal in time added on to seal the victory and the cup for Banyana.
