After dominating the first 14 minutes England allowed South Africa to break out for Gillian Pritchard to scramble in a goal.
Within a minute Smith was diving in for her first goal after Tina Cullen's shot had been stopped by the goalkeeper, Denise Schaaf. Smith's second goal, after 23 minutes, followed a good move by Cullen down the right.
The visitors equalised in the 52nd minute through Kerry Bee while England were reduced to 10 following Cullen's temporary suspension.
