Ikamva FC women narrowly beat Maties women 1-0 in a Safa Sasol Cape Town regional women’s league decider played at the Lentelus sports ground on Saturday.

The students fought tooth and nail but their strikers squandered several valuable opportunities.

After a goalless first half the visiting team played with more earnest as Ikamva lost its dominance. Anelisa Makeleni steered her team to a magnificent victory in the 69th minute.

Cape Town Roses dumped Spurs women 3-0 in their encounter played in NY49. The hosts kept the fort by outplaying an unspiritted Spurs team which was never a threat to them.

Sisanda Vukapi, the Roses left winger, performed brilliantly after she gave her team a solid early advantage.

The Roses blossomed throughout the game and the visitors faded away.

Nocawe Skiti cemented her team’s winning chances after she scored, which caused more confusion for a struggling Spurs team.

Lindsey Lottery sealed the matter for the Roses in the 77th minute.

Dangerous Heroes slipped to a 2-2 draw against Santos in Philippi. The hosts learned a valuable lesson for their forthcoming home games, which is to score from opportunities and not squander them.

With a 2-0 lead at half time, Dangerous Heroes became defensive, which allowed Santos to share the points. Lindishno Gxlishe and Fikile Magama’s early goals left Santos bewildered, but after the break the visitors fought back and propelled the game to an almost impossible victory.

Lucinda Croy and Deidre Swarts were impressive and both scored late in the second half.

Milano women drew 3-3 against Manenberg women in Grassy Park. The game was a tough encounter for both teams, who weren’t going to settle for a defeat.
