Banyana Banyana beat Senegal 1-0 in their second match of the CAF 2012 African Women Championship at the Malabo Stadium, which keeps their hopes alive in Group A.
The South Africans headed to the clash on the back of a 1-0 loss on Sunday to hosts Equatorial Guinea in their first match, but this time they were not to be denied thanks to striker Andisiwe Mgcoyi.
The lanky Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies (Sasol League Gauteng) player finished off a good move after a period of extensive Banyana pressure in the 70th minute to give the South Africans a hard-fought and much-needed win.
Portia Modise played her 100th international game.
Banyana will leave the island for the mainland on Thursday to prepare for their final Group A fixture against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Bata on Saturday.
