Mpumalanga Vodacom women's league reigning champions Flamingo have vowed to continue their dominance in the province by clinching the Autumn Soccer Challenge.

Flamingo, who represented the province in the women's Vodacom national playoffs in Free State in June, meet SuperSport in the final match billed for KaBokweni Stadium tomorrow at 2pm.

Reginah Mokoena, Flamingo's director, said: "Though the game is going to be tough, I'm adamant we will emerge victorious," she said.

SuperSport coach Alfred Shabangu said Flamingo did not worry them.

"They have been in top form recently, especially in the league but we will bring them down to earth."

SuperSport reached the final after being given a bye over Amazon while Flamingo beat Sijabulile 3-1. The tournament is sponsored by Heidel Eggs and BJ Group to the tune of R100 000.

The finalists for the men's section were still to be confirmed at the time of going to print. It will be staged at KaBokweni Stadium tomorrow at 4pm.
