In a dead rubber, also played on Tuesday, Northern Cape beat Mpumalanga 2-1.
Hosts Northern Cape ended their campaign in third place with six points and Western Cape was fourth with three points, same as the fifth-placed Mpumalanga.
In tight-contested Group B, Free State topped the standings with seven points after brushing aside the challenge of KZN 5-0 in their last game. Two goals from Shiwe Nogwanya and one each from Jemina Tau, Noxolo Magudu and Amelia Molelangoane ensured victory for Free State.
