Maccabi “Oded” Tel Aviv 6:0 Hapoel Kiryat Shemona (U17)
The Under-17 squad picked up the win on Matchday 3 and moved into first place with 7 points. Goal scorers for Maccabi included, Shaked Navon (x2), Yonatan Imberg, Nehoray Bitton, Shachar Rosen and Tal Torjman. Head Coach Eliezer Ben Aharon summed up the victory: “Right from the start of the match the staff and players identified the weak points of Kiryat Shemona due to playing with 3 central defenders and we could have speed even more goals in the first half. The goals scored were quality strikes and a team effort. The squad is improving from match to match and the key point in this contest was that we didn’t concede a goal after giving up 6 over the last two matches. This shows the players that we can achieve our goals if we focus and put an emphasis on what we continue to learn. Next week, we play Ashdod and the goal is again to record a clean sheet and I believe if we don’t give up any goals we’ll win. Congratulations to everyone including those who didn’t dress and didn’t play, they’ve been true professionals.”

It was difficult to break through their defense but we still were able to create some good scoring chances in the first half that didn’t result in any goals. However, we picked up the pace and made a number of substitutes in the second half which made all the difference in the match.”
