Expansion team Kingsman A upset current First Division title holder Ukraine United 2-1, in the Canadian Soccer League First Division Friday night.

Follwing a scoreless first half, forward Ivan Kucherenko opened the scoring for visiting Ukraine United at Esther Shiner Stadium, the goal coming from a penalty at 59 minutes when Kingsman defender Oleksandar Alieksieiev brought down a Ukraine United player in the box and referee Afsar Khan has no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

Kingsman equalized on a goal by forward Viktor Raskov five minutes later. Raskov, who entered as a substitute at halftime, took a good cross from Andrii Kovalchuk to head into the net.

Raskov also struck the late winner for the home side, taking a long ball from Hlib Kiselov to find the net with a chip shot at the 86th minute mark.

Kingsman were reduced to 10 men at 88 minutes when Stanislav Katana was shown the red card by referee Khan following a second caution and the 2-1 score in favour of Kingsman held to the final whistle.
