Kiryat Shemona 1-1 Beitar Jerusalem
The two undefeated clubs remained that way as they split the points in the northern city Monday night in a 1-1 draw. Hanan Maman & Ahmed Abed were the goals scorers as close to 4000 fans were in attendance.
Maccabi Netanya 3-1 Hapoel Petach Tikva
Netanya picked up the win after going down 1-0 in the opening minutes of the match with Shachar Hirsch giving Petach Tikva the short lived lead. Eran Levy scored on a penalty & Larry Kayode scored a brace as Netanya has picked up 7 points in their last 3 games launching them further up the table.
Maccabi Petach Tikva 1-0 Maccabi Haifa
The question is, how much worse can Maccabi Haifa play? Another game without a goal, very few chances & a loss for their 4th in a row sends coach Aleksander Stanoyvich searching for answers. Ran Ben Shimon’ team picked up the win on a Joachim Mununga goal in the 2nd half and picked up the three points, which Haifa will have to pick up the pieces after another disappointing outing.
Hapoel Haifa 0-3 Bnei Sakhnin
Could this loss spell the end of coach Reuven Atar who has not been able to find the magic touch after being in charge of Netanya a number of years ago. Bnei Sakhnin walked into Sammy a ofer Stadium and received a brace from Munamed Ghadir and a free kick goal from Ali Osman to seal the win.
Hapoel Akko 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva
Beer Sheva travelled up to Akko for a clash with Alon Harazi’s players including red hot striker Hamdi Salihi. But what Beer Sheva learned was that Akko is one of the toughest places to visit. Akko took a shock 1-0 lead on a nice goal by Amir Abu El Nir but Maor Bozaglo scored on a penalty kick to split the points.
Ashdod 1-2 Hapoel Raanana
Evans Kangwa scored a brace for Raanana as Alex Davidov may have scored the goal of the year in a losing effort in Ashdod.
