CAPE TOWN - Banyana Banyana made history when they lifted their fourth Cosafa Women's Championship title.

In the second half, a relentless attack saw Gabriela Salgado find the back of the net for Banyana to go 2-0 up.

A solitary goal for Botswana followed as Thando Mokgabo found the back of the net, but it wasn't enough as the South Africans held on for their seventh Cosafa title.

Holweni took her goal tally to eight which saw her take home the Cosafa Golden Boot Award.
