Hapoel Nir Ramat HaSharon 0:0 Maccabi “Eli Fuchs” Tel Aviv (U16)
After defeating the top of the table club last week, the Under-16 squad ended in a goalless draw on Matchday 9. Head Coach Eran Sassi summed up the match: “This was a one-sided affair. We controlled the matchup as the opposition tried to counterattack. Our defense was solid and I’m happy about that, but on the other hand I’m very disappointed that we couldn’t score even though we had plenty of opportunities. We will have to work with the players when they have the chance to finish towards the goal and we want to continue to improve as each match goes by. Scoring goals gives the club confidence and strength to continue on.”
Hapoel Beer Sheva 0:2 Maccabi “Eldad” Tel Aviv (U15)
Following last week’s big win over Maccabi Haifa, the Under-15 side continued its positive momentum against Beer Sheva on Matchday 7. Oral Bahia and Oscar Glock gave the young Yellow & Blue the victory and helped move the side into first place. Head Coach Ori David spoke about the match that was: “We began strong and we did things correctly to take a 2:0 lead after 20 minutes. From there we had some problems finding the back of the goal on the attack but our defense played well and we won many 50/50 balls. However, we still have plenty of things to work on, primarily to play more quality minutes, but of course it’s always better to work on these things after a win.”
