Johannesburg - The South African women's soccer team drew 1-1 with Ghana in their African Women's Championships match in Namibia, at Independence Stadium on Wednesday.
Banyana came into the game off a 1-0 loss to Cameroon in their group-B match on Sunday when they conceded in the dying minutes.
Just before the quarter-hour mark, Ghana had the first real chance as Portia Boakye reeled off a powerful strike from just outside the box, but a Banyana defender blocked the shot.
Banyana took the lead in the 19th minute.
Mamello Makhabane sent a free kick into the box, and Octavia Ngwenya pounced as the Ghana goalkeeper fumbled the ball, and the South African bundled the ball into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead.
Ghana equalised in first half injury time. Elizabeth Cudjoe gathered a cross unmarked in the six-yard area and duly found the target with ease to send the sides to the break all-square.
The South Africans had the chance to move ahead again in the 68th minute, but fluffed a straightforward chance. Portia Modise whipped the ball into the box for Leandra Smeda, but without any defenders in sight the Banyana player was well-wide with her headed attempt.
South Africa next take on Algeria at the same venue on Saturday.
