Eran Sassi summed up the match: “The goal of this match was to help give the players confidence on the defensive side of the ball after we gave up 3 goals last game. I’m happy that the team was able to learn how to do things better this week. On the attack, we are still not able to take advantage of our opportunities that we were able to create and I hope that with more hard work we will be able to accomplish this. All in all this was a good game, especially in the second half. I hope we will see further improvement next match.”
