Mamelodi Sundowns defeated Hasaacas Ladies 2-0 to win the title of the first edition of TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League on Friday, and added to the men’s team achievement of wining CAF Men’s Champions League in 2016.
Morifi started the scoring with an assist from Mgcoyi in the 33rd minute, then Mgcoyi herself added another goal at the 65th minute to end it 2-0 for her team, despite her teammate Regina Mogolola receiving a red card at the 92nd minute with a VAR review, just two minutes after being subbed into the game.
Jerry Tshabalala – Mamelodi Sundowns Coach”I was afraid we were not clinical enough, but today we were marvelous. I’m very happy for my girls.”“I spoke to Mgcoyi and told her that she needs to bring it to the party, and that’s what she did. I’m proud of her and the whole team.”“I saw how Hasaacas Ladies played before.
I needed to press them with three strikers. Lucky enough, they are not taller than us. We had confidence playing our football, and we frustrated Hassacas Ladies even though they played good football.”“We came to this tournament and saw the level of competition, I assure you next time, it will be even tougher.”“We are the first team to win the WCL and we did it without conceding a goal.”
