The second-seed Barkom-Kazhahy Lviv closed an intense best-of-five series of the 2017/18 Superliga playoff finals against No.1 Lokomotyv Kharkiv with a 3-2.  

After losing the first two games at home (3-1 and 3-0) Lokomotyv managed to tie the series at rival’s court (3-2 and 3-1) and give themselves a chance to win the fifth title in a row in front of own crowd.

But, led by the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, a 25-year-old setter Vladyslav Didenko, Barkom surpassed Lokomotyv in a decisive Game 5 in four sets, partially 25-23, 18-25, 25-19, 25-19.
