Today, Wednesday, the Under-14 North Squad Maccabi “Shlomo” Tel Aviv advanced to the State Cup final after defeating Hapoel Rishon Le’Zion 6:0 at Ramat Gan Stadium.
Head Coach Adi Heber summed up the victory: “The draw handed us a semifinal clash against Hapoel Rishon Le’Zion. On paper the quality between the sides was evident. We prepared for the match through video sessions and training sessions where we were able to see how we could take advantage of our strengths against them.
From the very first seconds of the contest the players were able to do what they had prepared to the best of their abilities. We scored an early goal and had many chances where we scored a total of 6 markers. I’m happy as to the aggressiveness and fight we had for every ball and we didn’t allow our opponents a second of air throughout the match. I want to thank the players and my staff, Alon Peleg, Adi Somekh, Shai Hess and Robin Verheul. We will celebrate today and tomorrow we will begin our preparations for the next league game.”
