Maccabi Tel Aviv “Shahar”, the club’s under-19 outfit held most of the possession in their away clash against Hapoel Beersheba on Saturday but were unable to convert their advantage into victory and ended their league clash in a 1-1 draw.

Maccabi, placed third in their division, scored in the 15th minute when Tal Torgeman chipped the Beersheba keeper after receiving an excellent through ball from Shai Balhassen.

But the lead lasted until seconds before halftime when Maccabi goalkeeper Ben Musayof was adjudged to have fouled a Beersheba player in the area and the hosts converted the resulting penalty taken by Netanel Askias.

Maccabi’s players had almost all the chances to score in the second half but were unable to convert at least a handful of decent chances.

Maccabi’s lineup: Ben Musayof, Guy Itzhaki, Mikel Mor, Itay Ben Hemo, Rotem Yatzkar, Nov Berkovitz, (Afek Sapir Navot, 61), Shai Balhassen (Or Roizman, 82), Asaf Hershko (Nadav Nidam, 85), Tal Torgeman (Shaked Navon, 72), Parfait Guiagon, Ronen Hanchis.
