Manenberg women narrowly defeated RV United 3-2 in a nail-biting Safa Sasol Cape Town regional women’s league derby played in Manenberg on Saturday.

The hosts were on the attack from the onset, with Raymondo Bergman giving Manenberg women the lead from a long square cross early to kickstart the match. Manenberg continued with their momentum and Bergman was at it again in the 24th minute.

RV, with a second-half deficit, crawled back after Lihle Qokela revived their hopes with a goal. The hosts hit back once again as Chante-Lee Carelse secured the victory for them with a goal to stop the visitors from snatching all three points, instead settling for a consolation goal minutes before the final whistle by Zimasa Khana.

UWC easily beat Vasco da Gama 5-2 at Parow Park on Saturday.

The visitors took control of the game after the hosts fail to take advantage of their home turf. Leandra Smeda netted for the students in the 15th minute after she scored from a classic through pass by Amogeleng Motau.

The students dominated ball possession, while Vasco lacked ruthlessness in attack. Motau scored again for the visitors in the 22th minute, while Thembi Kgatana netted twice for her team before the break.

Vasco struggled to regain their shape for most of the match and the students latched onto it. Abongile Dlani scored for the winners while Kim Nicholson and Danielle Clayford scored for the hosts.

In an exhilarating league derby played at Mandela Park on Saturday, Cape Town Roses defeated Portia United 4-2.

The Roses blossomed with their ball skills while the hosts were licking their wounds on home soil.

Roses’ right winger Daweti Lelona, who struck with two quick goals, was the kingpin for her team, spurring them on in the process.

Roses, with a 2-0 advantage in the first half, were alert and caused the host to tremble. Vukapi Sisanda strengthened her team’s position with a superb goal. Nomthandazo Kubheka’s goal-scoring double effort was too late as agile striker Fulutidulu Ode netted for the visitors after she dribbled her way past a sloppy defence.

Ikamva FC women won Milano United women 2-0 at Nyanga Stadium. The hosts took the upper hand after the visitors could not produce a steady counter attack. Anelisa Makeleni gave them an early first half lead and secured the win for her team in the 82th minute with her second strike.

Spurs women hammered Dangerous Heroes 2-0 at William Herbert sports ground. Spurs were quick on the attack and the danger subsided as they displayed their home dominance. Spurs striker Jennifer Martin scored for them after the visitors’ performance fell into disarray. Antonia Carelse secured a victory for her team with a hard-won goal.

Santos women crushed Maties FC 3-1 in Crawford. Santos players gelled superbly, allowing Lucinda Croy to score for them midway through the first half.

A brace of goals by Megan Gaine sealed the victory for her team, while Jessica Theron scored the consolation goal for the students.

Croy, the backbone of the Santos attack, has been called up to attend the Banyana Banyana training camp.
