Tura Magic wanted to win Saturday’s NFA Women’s Super League Cup final in style, but Galz & Goals would not let them.

That is according to the Player of the Tournament Tomalina ‘Pele’ Adams after Magic had to overcome a spirited Gal & Goals side to win the Super League Cup final 1-0 at the NFA Technical Centre.

A strike by Queen of the Match Memory Ngonda 15 minutes into the first half sealed the win for Magic with the team walking away with R40 000 for their efforts.

“The final was not what we expected to play. We were under a lot of pressure today, but we made sure we scored,” said Adams, who dedicated her MVP prize to her teammates.

“It wasn’t that exciting, it was frustrating because we played more like how our opponents play and not like Tura Magic. In the end, we take the win.

“I’m very pleased for myself and the team for our achievements. I really wanted to win this tournament ever since Nampol defeated us in 2017,” she added.

Such was the Galz performance that head coach Ronnie Hoxobeb was named the tournament’s best coach and not his Tura Magic counterpart Shama Gure.

“It was a good one. It was a long wait, two years and another trophy in the cabinet,” said Gure.

“We’re going to continue working for the league. We are defending champions and it’s never going to be easy. I think the final was a testament to that,” he said.

Thomalina Adams (player of the tournament, Tura Magic),
