Jan 2, 2024 | Football

Hapoel Beer Sheva blanked Hapoel Hadera 2-0 as two second half goals on the road gave the southern reds the win and the 3-points. After a goalless first half, Antonio Sefer gave Elyaniv Barda’s squad the lead while Guy Badash added the insurance marker to hand the visitors the win.

“This was our third game this week and we’ve had an intense week without a doubt,” Beer Sheva coach Barda said. “It was important that we continue our positive momentum as we know what would be if it were negative. So we want to keep this up as long as we can. We have to continue to improve from game to game as we have when we play the way we are capable of.”

“This was not a good performance by us,” Hadera coach Niso Avitan said. “We didn’t deserve more than what we put in and too many thing just didn’t work out out way. It’s disappointing but I behoove that we know what we can be excepted to do and what we need to do. We will ned to do better over the upping game.”

Maccabi Netanya defeated Maccabi Bnei Reineh 3-1 as the Guy Tzarafti era on the bench has given the demand city squad hope going forward. Nassim Ouammou gave Netanya a 1-0 lead via a free kick in the first half but Mark Kostza found the equalizer in the 81st minute to draw even. However, a pair of markers in second half injury time by Liran Rotman and Bar Cohen wrapped up the win.

“When I got here I didn’t look at what had been with the club but I started from zero,” Guy Tzarfati began. “There is a good team here and one that is balanced. From my point of view I am just looking forward. This was a challenge, to win two away games with this one being one of character by scoring a pair of goals so late in the match.”

“When the game was 1-1 we had a good chance but right now we are going through a bit of a tough time,” Reineh coach Sharon Mimer said. “We have the experience to understand that there are times like this and we will have to really put in the work to get out of this situation. We were dangerous in the second half and should have come out of this game with at least a point.”
