Sheen Nicole Ramores struck in the 86th minute to hand Kaya FC-Iloilo its first Philippine Football Federation Women’s League crown Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila.

Head coach Let Dimzon believes the victory would encourage local clubs to build strong teams and give an outlet for girls to showcase their footballing talent.

“I’m happy for Kaya, it’s another historic achievement for the club. We’re the first club to win the PFF Women’s League and it is a huge honor for us to get this title,” Dimzon said.

“Even Manila Diggers did well. This is their first final in an 11-a-side game and that’s because of the support of the club’s manager. To support women’s football, there should be more clubs and stakeholders to invest in football.”

Kaya’s Shelah Mae Cadag was named as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player with teammate Charisa Lemoran receiving the Best Midfielder honors.

In an interview with DAILY TRIBUNE, Kaya president Paul Tolentino urges the clubs in the Philippines Football League to set up their own women’s football squads as well.

“I would just encourage them. I would just say do it. Managing and running a women’s football club is very fun and I think it’s a worthwhile investment for all football clubs,” Tolentino said.
