The hosts took a 1-0 halftime lead through Jessica Wade’s 12th minute goal.

Lindokuhle Gamede added the second in the 72nd minute before Kananelo Taiwe completed the comeback in the 76th minute.

Meanwhile, Shepolopolo could have clinched it on away goals rule but 53rd minute substitute Melissa Mataba saw her 84th minute shot came off Bantwana’s post to shutter their India dreams.
