Tanzania teams register wins at COSAFA Women’s Championships

Tanzania teams register wins at COSAFA Women’s Championships

Tanzania edged past Zimbabwe on day two of the COSAFA Women’s Championship that is being staged in Nelson Mandela Bay.

Tanzania took the lead on the hour-mark, Kadosho Shekigenda heading home from a corner as the Zimbabwe defence stood static.

The afternoon got worse for the Zimbabweans when captain Emmaculate Msipa received her marching orders for a second yellow card and they had to finish the game with 10 players and 16 minutes still on the clock.

It was the first red card of the tournament and will keep her out of their next fixture.

Meanwhile, the Tanzania U-17 team got their COSAFA Women’s Under-17 Championship campaign off to a strong start as they defeated Comoros Islands 5-1.

Aisha Masaka bagged a brace, including the opener, while Mwanamvua Haruna, Joyce Lema and Protasia Mbunda were also on target.    Noussrat Mistoihi had equalised for Comoros from the penalty-spot in the first half.
