Botswana and South Africa to contest Region 5 Games final

Botswana and South Africa will contest the AUSC Region 5 Games Women’s Under-20 competition trophy after they won through to Saturday’s final with two hard-fought victories in the semifinals on Thursday.

Host Botswana will hope to keep the trophy in the country after a tense 1-0 victory over Namibia, much to the delight of the home crowd.

The only goal of the game was scored in the 32ndminute by Esalenna Galekhutle, with Botswana able to keep their opponents at bay for the remainder of the game, though not without a number of alarms.

Home goalkeeper Bame Mokime had to pull off a string of excellent saves in what was a fine performance from her.

Defending champions South Africa sealed their place in the final with what proved a comfortable 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe at the University of Botswana Stadium.

Lelona Daweti scored both goals for the victors, the first late in the opening period and the second with 20 minutes to play.

South Africa played with a pragmatic approach, allowing Zimbabwe to commit themselves forward and then hitting them with quick transition play that was difficult for their opponents to handle.
