South African international footballers Rhoda Mulaudzi, Bambanani Mbane and Lebogang Ramalepe made history with Dinamo-BSUPC after beating Minsk 5-4 on penalties to win the Belarusian Women’s Cup title at Dinamo Stadium on Monday, 31 August 2020.

Going into the final, Minsk were aiming for a record-equalling ninth title to match Bobruichanka’s number of title’s, while Dinamo were seeking to become the eighth different winner of the competition since 1992.

Both teams started on a cautious note, with Dinamo dominating in terms of ball possession.

There was very little to report in terms of clear-cut chances in the first half, though Minsk seized the initiative in the latter stages of the first 45 minutes as they mounted pressure on the Dinamo defence.

With the first-half ending scoreless, there was a greater sense of urgency at the start of the second half for Dinamo.

Dinamo had the last try for goal in regulation time after Mulaudzi was introduced but Minsk were rock-solid, ensuring a stalemate.

Dinamo triumphed 5-4 on penalties despite Ramalepe’s miss.

Mbane, Mulaudzi and Ramalepe all starred for their club on game day.
