Spurs women saw off RV United 2-0 in a Safa Sasol Cape Town regional women’s league fixture played at Lingelethu Stadium on Saturday.

Michaela Liebenberg, Spurs’ agile striker, gave her team an advantage in the first half with a brilliant goal.

In the second half the hosts were down while Spurs continued their accurate ball passes.

Kaylyn Jordaan, Spurs’ left winger, ensured her team’s victory in the 77th ­minute.

Celine Damons (5), Lucinda Croy and Megan Gaine netted for the hosts, while Joy Lindi scored the consolation goal for the visitors.

Cape Town Roses whipped Ikamva FC 6-0 in their important encounter played in NY 49 on Sunday.

Phoenix women FC shockingly trapped FC Tafelzucht women 2-0 in a Safa Cape Town regional women’s league encounter played at the Westridge Oval on Saturday. The hosts had many opportunities but their strikers failed to score from vital changes.

Winnies women FC caused a major upset on Saturday at the Khayelitsha stadium when they hammered log runners-up Heideveld women 7-3.

Aphine Qgugula’s early hat tricks propelled them into a winning combination.

In the 33rd and 37th minute Anganathi Booi steadied the ship for the hosts with two quick goals.

With a first-half lead the hosts played with determination and kept the fort.
