Sports Feature Sports South Africa ends Shepolopolo's COSAFA U17 Cup Final Dream

Shepolopolo U17’s dreams of qualifying for the inaugural COSAFA U17 Women’s Cup final in Mauritius ended today after losing to South Africa in Friday’s semifinal.

South Africa beat Shepolopolo 2-1 in Port Louis to advance to Sunday’s final when they will face Uganda.

Oyisa Marhasi broke the deadlock in the 16th minute to put South Africa 1-0 ahead.

Eleven minutes later, Maweta Chilenga equalized to see the two sides go 1-1 into halftime.

But lady of the match Jessica Wade fired-in a superb free-kick in the 49th minute to seal South Africa’s passage to the final where they will meet high-scoring Uganda who crushed Botswana 12-0 in their semifinal clash earlier on Friday.

Shepolopolo and Botswana will meet in the early kickoff on Sunday in the battle for Bronze.

  1. Our lady/women’s teams have really improved in “leaps & bounds” since they first started competing at the international level, for me, the OYDC effect is real.
    SA have had a head start in women’s soccer, plus better facilities etc, though we are catching up rapidly but still need to pay attention to fitness levels, how defend effectively and manage games, as well as guarding against or taking advantage of set pieces.
    Keep it up ladies, you are on the right path…
