In a hard-fought encounter in the second round of the Sasol Safa Cape Town regional women’s league Santos Ladies narrowly beat Portia United 3-2 at Mandela Park on Saturday.

Portia, the home side, had the upper hand for most of the first half. Xoliswa Gayiya, the agile Portia striker, cemented her team’s performance with two powerful goals after she outplayed the inconsistent visiting defenders.

Lucinda Croy, the dynamic Santos goal machine, was yet again a thorn in the side of the hosts when she dribbled her way past a rock solid backline and hammered the ball past the keeper.

Santos continued with their quest for full travelling points when Astrid Bok scored the winning goal.
