  On Friday, October 17th, 2008 FC Ukraine United played their last game in the season against one of the best teams in Ontario Real Toronto in the George Finnie Cup Final.
   Julio Garcia scored a header in the stoppage time to give Real Toronto late 2-1 victory against FC Ukraine United at Ontario Soccer Centre Stadium.
  The game's first scoring threat came in the fifteenth minute when Real's defender stole the ball in the back then dribbled the ball up to about 20 yards out before releasing the ball to RT forward Garcia. Garcia's shot was saved by United goalkeeper Nikita Zemskov.
   Ukrainians answered back right the way. Mykola Voytsehovskiy missed two 100% chances to score in the middle of the half.
   Minutes later, RT midfielder Hayden Fitzwilliams opened the scoring in the 33rd minute at the end of a lengthy Real possession in which they sent the ball back and forth just outside the penalty area until it ended up on the left side. Fitzwilliams sent a clear shot past Zemskov for a 1-0 lead.
   The second half was much more wide open, both teams were creating more chances to score.
   Finnaly FCUU had their way in the 66th minute, again enjoying unfettered possession in the middle of the Real's half. Eventually the ball ended up on the foot of Evgeniy Ishchak, and he blasted the shot from a tough angle deep on the right side to the far lower corner for a 1-1 tie.
   United then had another good opportunity of their own to take the lead, when Burim Konjuhi hit the cross bar just minutes later after a tying goal.
   Both teams enjoyed few more decent opportunities for the remainder of the game. 
   FCUU defender Yuriy Hlyva had been booked for the first time for a foul on RT forward in the 92nd minute just outside of the penalty area on the right side. Free kick for Real and perfect header byGarcia...Disappointing 2-1 loss in the stoppage time for FC Ukraine United.

     FCUU picked apart the defense of the Scarborough Rangers early and often on its way to a convincing 7-2 victory on Thursday evening at their home field at Soccer Centre Stadium.

    Mykola Voytsehovskiy produced a second unassisted goal in the 15th minute to put FCUU up 2-0. Voytsehovskiy dribbled around few Rangers defenders and let fly from about 8 meters out, rifling a quick bomb past Scarborough's goalkeeper into the back of the net.
    FCUU wasted no time getting its third goal of the game when Vladimir Koval scored literally minutes later his second goal in the game. 3-0 after one.
    Vladimir Koval put the result beyond all doubt just five minutes into second half. Koval finally completed his triple after another spectacular cross from Burim Konjuhi. 4-0
    Trailing by four goals, the visitors began to push forward in the second half and finally scored one goal back from a free kick. 4-1
    Just minutes later, Burim Konjuhi found himself one on one with the Rangers goaltender and made no mistake by flipping the ball over him into the back of the net. 5-1
   But it didn't take long for FCUU to add to their advantage. In the 72nd minute, Voytsehovskiy's shot was driven powerfully into the left lower corner as Rangers goalkeeper fell to his left and the United were up 6-1.
   The visitors scored ones again, after FCUU goaltender Nikita Zemskov made a terrible mistake by loosing the ball in his penalty area trying to dribble two SR forwards. 6-2
    Two minutes before the whistle, Yuriy Hlyva had an easy pass to Yuriy Khatchaturov in front of SR's goalkeeper and Khatchaturov tapped home his first goal of the season.

  FC Ukraine United continued their dominance in the Ontario Soccer League with 1:0 away win against the RealToronto on Wednesday, June 18th at Ontario Soccer Centre Stadium. 
   It was FC Ukraine United, however, who had the best chance in the opening stages. In the sixteenth minute, Burim Konjuhi had a breakaway, fortunately for the Real, control him they did, as Konjuhi often found himself swarmed and stripped of the ball before he could pass to a teammate Mykola Voytsehovskiy. Real Toronto kept United honest on defense and nearly caught the Ukrainians on the counterattack. In the 33rd minute, FCUU defender Olexander Kaplun collided with Real's Kedian Lecky in a hard tackle that left Lecky lying on his back in the penalty area. It's a penalty kick and yellow card for Kaplun... Fortunally for Ukrainians, goalkeeper Nikita Zemskov superbly saved the opponent's penalty. 0:0 - after one.
   Real came out with more attacking vigor after the break, collecting two shots in the first 10 minutes of the half. In the 55 minute, Olexander Kaplun got his second yellow card after a dangerous tackle from behind. Ukrainians left with ten men. It was FCUU, however, that next found the back of the net. In one of the counterattacks, Mykola Voytsehovskiy gave a perfect pass to Zafar Hamzaev, while Real's defense didn't close him down, allowing the midfielder to reach the edge of the penalty area, and he launched a low, hard shot that eluded the opponent's goalkeeper and found the back of the net.1:0 for FC Ukraine United! 
   After controlling the pace of play for much of the half, the deflated Real seemed powerless against a United defense.
   1:0 - final score!  FC Ukraine United won their third straight game and remain on the first place in the league!

Ontario Soccer League

On June 1st, Ukraine United had its second game of the season and its home opener. This game was perhaps one of the most bizarre games one could watch. Ukraine United were facing a significantly weaker side in Magic AC. Ukraine United was off to a strong with a goal by Evgeny Ishchak off a free kick. This was followed by a few more chances. In the first 20 minutes it seemed like Ukraine United had control of the game and it was going to be one sided affair however they were shocked when Magic AC scored a goal in the 25th minute. The Ukrainians were shaken by this and their play deteriorated. It wasn't long until Magic AC scored their second goal to make it 2-1 after a mistake in defense. In the second half things went from bad to worse for Ukraine United as, Magic AC scored another 3 goals!!! The Ukrainians were down 5-1 with 20 minutes to go. It was looking like the most humiliating defeat which the club has ever suffered. However with 18 minutes to go Ukrainians cut the lead by 1 with a goal by Yuri Hlyva. This seemed to rally the team and more opportunities seemed to follow. Minutes later the lead was again cut by 1 with a goal by Evgeny Ishchak. Now the score was 5-3. Ukraine United continues to put on the pressure and it wasnt long until they scored again on a breakaway by Burim Konjuhi. The Ukrainians were only 1 goal away from a miraculous comeback and this was completed by another breakaway goal from Burim Konjuhi. The game was now 5-5 but there was still 2 minutes remaining. A last attack by Ukraine United resulted in another breakaway for Burim Konjuhi and he made the most of this opportunity and put Ukraine United ahead 6-5.!!!!!! What a Thrilling game!!

Ontario Soccer League
  On May 28th, 2008, 9 pm at the Centennial Stadium. FC Ukraine United faced off against a strong opponents FK Bosna Toronto.

This first game was a thrilling affair with over 400 fans in attendance. FC Ukraine United was off to a great start controlling most of the play and dominating the Bosnians, and it was not long until Kirill Gromyko who is fresh off an injury scored a beautiful goal from the left flank. His hard work and persistence paid off.

Ukraine United didn't stop the pressure and continued to push forward. In the 25th minute Evgeny Ishchak hit the cross bar from a wonderful placed free kick. There was a sense that another goal was coming and it did just minutes later with a nice play which was started by Kiril Gromyko and finished off by Andrei Malychenkov. There was a late scare for the Ukrainians as a well stung attack FK Bosna resulted in Nikita Zemskov making a fine save to keep the game out of the Bosnians reach. The Ukrainians were leading 2-0 going into half time. Second half the Bosnian's came out strong and early in the half they were awarded a horrible penalty kick. But fortunately the Bosnians don't kick the ball very well and the penalty kick went well over the bar. FC Ukraine United sat back and shut down the Bosnians relentless attack, and played counter attack football. This style of play paid off as a nice cross by Evegny Ishchak resulted in a Bosian player to head the ball into his own net.(3-0). Only 10 minutes later another wonderful run by player of the game Kirill Gromyko resulted in a beautiful cross to Burim Konjuhi who headed the ball home.
