Bnei Yehuda 2:4 Hapoel Tel Aviv

American Aaron Schoenfeld scored a hat trick and Ramzi Sfori added a 93rd minute goal as Eli Gutman’s side defeated Bnei Yehuda 4:2 at Bloomfield Stadium. Jude Nworoh and Hasan Abu Zaid were the marksman for the home side but Schoenfeld stole the show for the Reds.

Kiryat Shemona 2:1 Hapoel Haifa

Shlomi Dura desperately doesn’t want to see the two sides he coached this year head into the Leumit League and his Kiryat Shemona team did everything in his power to ensure that the Northern club will stay up in the Ligat Ha’Al with a 2:1 victory. Achmed Abed and Austine Amutu scored for the home team as Ma’aran Lala pulled one back too little too late to get his side on the board.

Hapoel Kfar Saba 0:0 Hapoel Akko

Kfir Saba will live to play another year in the Logan Ha’Al as the 0:0 draw was all they needed to stave off relegation. Akko plays Kiryat Shemona next week which can decide who stays up and who goes down while Haifa will need to defeat Bnei Yehuda.

Maccabi Petach Tikva 2:1 Maccabi Netanya

It looked as if Netanya was about to win a match on a Sameh Mareev goal until the clock hit the 73rd minute. That’s when Xavier Thomas and Dor Alo scored a pair of goals to give the home side the win and send Netanya to yet another defeat.
