Greater Springs women's soccer team is the first team to lift the Ekurhuleni Women's Festival title.

Coach Joseph "Skeshe" Mkhonza's side beat an obdurate Greater Edenvale 1-0 in a hard-fought final at KwaThema Sports Complex on Saturday.

The tournament was a great experience for followers of women's soccer who watched some of their Ekurhuleni heroes who play for Banyana Banyana in action.

Springs had first-choice Banyana Banyana goalkeeper Phindile Nkosi in their camp while her teammate, defender Janine van Wyk, led the Edenvale lasses.

The decisive goal came in the second half from skilful dribbler player of the tournament Busisiwe Gumede.

Springs will get 18 pairs of soccer boots from adidas as the first prize. They were also presented with a trophy and gold medals.

Warriors beat Pelicans 18-14 and Vosloorus hammered Tlakula 18-0 in the netball finals.

All the winners received gold medals and trophies.

The one-day festival that was hosted by Ekurhuleni metropolitan municipality was part of the ongoing process of celebrating Women's Month across the country.
