The Grand Final Of The Children’s Mini-Football Tournament

The grand final of the children’s mini-football tournament has just taken place. Three Odessa teams turned out, namely Orphanage no. 4, the school-orphanage no. 90 and “Domovenok”, the team of DKD.

The battle on the pitch was fierce, despite the friendly status of the competition. The spectators were treated to many interesting moments, great saves and of course goals.

Orphanage no. 4 took first place in the tournament, and were rewarded with the grand prize, 1st Place trophy and new football boots for their squad. Second place was occupied by the school-orphanage no.90, with Domovenok in third.

Our very own Rita Bezverkhaya was named goalie of the tournament, quite an honour for the only girl on any of the teams! Artem Smirnov, also of Domovenok, was named  player of the tournament. He played a mature game well beyond his years, despite lacking the physicality, technical ability and footballing mind of a number of his opponents.

The senior referee conducted the prize-giving ceremony together with Herman Shuiskii, the DKD coach.
