Zambia beat Mauritius 3-0 in the final of the 2017 Cosafa Under-17 Championships at the St Francois Xavier Stadium in Port Louis.
Mauritius - in their first ever continental final - held out for over an hour, before Zambia scored three goals in 10 minutes.
Captain Prince Mumba, Christopher Phiri and Kingsley Hakwiya were all on target for the Junior Chipolopolo.
It is Zambia's first title win in the competition for southern African teams.
After their disqualification 12 months ago for fielding ineligible players, Zambia are riding a wave of success after their Under-20 team were crowned African champions and then excelled at the recent Fifa Under-20 World Cup in South Korea.
"It was a very good tournament for Zambia but we had some difficulties in the first half as the home team was getting full support from their public," Zambian U-17 coach Mumamba Numba told BBC Sport.
Mauritius winger Jean Yannick Aristide was named Player of the Tournament
