Sundowns Kick Off With CAFWCL Win
Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies kicked off their Total Energies CAF Women’s Champions League campaign with a good start as they defeated Kenya’s Vihiga Queens 1-0 in their Group B Opener on Saturday.
The only goal of the match came from the COSAFA Qualifiers top goal scorer Melinda Kgadiete as early as the third minute.
There were opportunities to extend the lead from the South African Champions in the first half but the Queens defence proved to be resilient.
Kgadiete had a chance to double her side’s lead early in the second half but she missed a free header from a free kick.
Unable to extend their lead, Jerry Tshabalala’s team had a few nervy moments as the game closed out,
