South Africa End Zambia's Cosafa Women Fairly Tale Run”

BITTER rivals Zimbabwe and South Africa, the top two teams in Southern Africa, will meet in the 2017 COSAFA Women Championship final at Barbourfields on Sunday after contrasting victories in their semi-final battles yesterday.

Just when it looked like Zambia were well and truly on course to the final, South Africa's Leandra Smeda snatched two goals some 12 minutes before the end.

The comeback from complete six minutes from time when Captain Refiloe Jane tapped home at the back post to force the game to penalties.

Smeda, Bambanani Mbane, Matlou, Nompumelelo Nyandeni (who had also come on in the second half), as well as Lebohang Ramalepe converted their spot-kicks to send the South African bench into a frenzy.

Following a thrilling match which produced six goals, as Banyana and Zambia drew 3-3 in regulation time, Desiree Ellis' side emerged as 5-3 winners in the penalty shootout.

South Africa will go on to play the victor of the Kenya - Zimbabwe semifinal, later on Thursday.

Rhoda Mukwasa missed her penalty for Zambia with Banyana Banyana scoring all their penalties to deny Zambia a place in the final.

Banyana will face either Kenya or hosts Zimbabwe in the tournament decider.
