Mamelodi Sundowns made history on Sunday, winning their second CAF Women’s Champions League by beating Sporting Casablanca 3-0 in the final at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium in Ivory Coast.

Refilwe Tholakele scored in the 21st minute and Boitumelo Rabele in the 24th. Tholakele struck again in the 78th minute to round up the scoring.

Sundowns had advanced to the semi-final after group stage wins over JKT Queens, Athletico Abidjan and Sporting Casablanca. Their semi-final yielded a 1-0 victory over AS Far.

“When you see me happy, I try to rub it onto my players. A happy player will always deliver results for the team,” said Sundowns coach Jerry Tshabalala.

“We want to keep on doing good. Now the target, we are hoping that one day we will have a Women’s Club World Cup and we will go represent as the African champions.”

Sporting Casablanca coach Mehdi El Qaichori added: “It was a good experience from the team. I want to congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns for the win.

“They played very well today and were the better team. This was a great tournament, which is also good for women’s football in Africa.”
