The final game, which took place without the usual excitement, the title holders played with their satellite team.

Marinha de Guerra did not justify their previous performances, such as in the initial stage of the competition and the semi-finals where they  defeated  Petro de Luanda and Progresso do Sambizanga teams, respectively.

The game was watched by the secretary of State for Sports, Albino da Conceição, and prominent personalities of the African Handball Confederation (CAHB), whom last Saturday conducted the draw of the 22nd African Cup in senior females category, which the country will host from November 27 to December 8, this year.
