FC Ukraine United finished 2019 season as the championship runner-up in the First Division of Canadian Soccer League.
Ukrainians left it all on the field on Saturday afternoon in their first CSL Championship Final. The title clash, against Scarborough, was expected to be a very difficult challenge as the east end Toronto team had come second in the standings and United were third. Ukraine United though, found a way to stay in it, but ended up falling short in the end, losing this one in heartbreaking fashion.
Both sides served up attractive soccer in the main event CSL Championship game, with little to choose between two evenly matched teams that were scoreless at the half and until the 69 th minute when Scarborough striker Aleksander Stojiljkovic drove the ball from 12 yards past Ukraine United goalkeeper Oleksandr Popravka.
Ukraine United fought to get back on even terms, but a tripping foul in the penalty box as Scarborough was closing in gave Stojiljkovic his second goal when he scored from the spot. The 2-0 lead held up until the final whistle.
FC Ukraine United would like to say big thank you to all our players, fans, supporters and sponsors who made all this happened in our 2019 success!
