KAYA FC-Iloilo added another feather to its cap as it captured its first Philippine Football Federation (PFF) Women’s League crown on Saturday (Nov. 11) night at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
The Kaya lady booters leaned on sub Sheen Nicole Ramores for the game-winning late strike in a slim 1-0 win over Manila Digger FC in the finale.
Ms. Ramores found herself unmarked and made the Manila Digger’s defenders pay by blasting the marginal low strike at the 86th minute.
The Kaya ladies continued the winning tradition of the club after their male counterparts won the Philippines Football League’s league diadem and the Copa Paulino Alcantara (Cup) jewel earlier.
“I’m happy for Kaya. It’s another historic achievement for the club,” said coach Let Dimzon. “We’re the first club to win the PFF Women’s League and it’s a huge honor for us to get this title.”
Meanwhile, Far Eastern University took third place honors after beating De La Salle University, 2-1.
Dionesa Tolentin scored the winner in the 53rd minute after Angelica Teves leveled Carmela Altiche’s opener. — Olmin Leyba
