JOHANNESBURG - The Sasol South African women&39;s soccer team walloped the Botswana women&39;s national team 10-0 in an international friendly match played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng, on Saturday afternoon.

Veteran striker Portia Modise, who plays for Gauteng league team Croesus Ladies, scored five goals in the match and her 97th for the South African national team. Mamello Makhabane got a brace, Refiloe Jane, SanahMollo and Silindile Ngubane also registered their names on the score sheet.

Banyana Banyana dominated most of the first half, forcing Botswana to play in their own half for most parts of the stanza.

Makhabane opened the scoring for Vera Pauw&39;s charges just before the half hour mark with a shot from outside the box.

Minutes later Mollo made up for an earlier miss when she doubled the score for South Africa with a tap in past the Botswana keeper.

Jane extended the lead in the 44th minute before Modise made the score 4-0 with minutes left before the half time break.

South Africa continued from where they left off in the second half with substitute Ngubane slotting in the fifth goal minutes into the second half.

The women&39;s national team continued their rampage over Botswana with Modise scoring three goals all minutes apart. Modise continued with her good form when she scored her 97th goal in the green and gold strip and fifth of the match.

Makhabane sealed a great win for Pauw ending the match 10-0 for South Africa.

Banyana Banyana&39;s preparations for the African Women&39;s Championship will continue over the next three weeks before they leave for for Namibia.
