Legenda-ShVSM earn Ukrainian winter honour

Legenda-ShVSM Chernigiv beat CPOR-Donchanka Donetsk on penalties to take the title as Mariupol staged the second Ukrainian Winter Women's Football Championship.

Legenda-ShVSM Chernigiv emerged winners as the Illichyvets Sport Centre in Mariupol staged the second Ukrainian Winter Women's Football Championship.

Previously held five years ago, the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) Women's Football Committee decided to revive the tournament this year, funding the participation of the ten teams and referees. The clubs were able to direct the costs they saved to their own funds and women's football development in their respective regions.

President of the host club Illichivka Mariupol, Volodymyr Boiko, said at the opening of the tournament that he hoped it would become a part of the football calendar in his city. The top four from the 2012 Ukrainian Women's Premier League – WFC Kharkiv, Naftokhimik Kalush, CPOR-Donchanka Donetsk and Legenda-ShVSM – made the semis after emerging from the three groups.

Legenda-ShVS saw off Naftokhimik, and CPOR-Donchanka beat league champions Kharkiv to make it to the final, where the Chernigiv side took the crown 4-3 on penalties after a 0-0 draw. Kharkiv beat Naftokhimik 1-0 for third place and the remaining teams finished in this order: Illichivka, Rodyna-KOLISP Kostop, ATEKS-SDUShOR-16 Kyiv, WFC-2 Kharkiv and the two non-Premier League entrants Chornomorochka Odesa and Zarya-Spartak Lugansk.

The 2013 Ukrainian Women's Premier League season begins next month while Kharkiv will enter next season's UEFA Women's Champions League having gone out in the 2012/13 qualifying round last August.
