Today’s results meant that the table brought everyone a lot closer together and pride of place must go to BPR who eventually ran out 8-3 winners against early pacesetters Maccabi 3rd. Reich Masters put Jewventus to the sword in the other match with a 4-0 victory also levelling the points off with their opponents.
Yoni Greene opened the scoring for Rangers after 6 minutes and was followed up with a back post header from Ethan Mann, but had the woodwork to thank keeping parity in the score. Maccabi defended their position well with some good saves but also had the post come to their rescue. A long range shot from the hosts hit the back of the net to make it 2-1 before the break.
In the second half, the crossbar once again played its part, Mann was very unlucky with a curling shot. Greene was then brought down and promptly tucked away the spot kick making it 3-1. Another shot against the post and minutes later a great save kept out Greene for a potential hatrick but was slammed home by Brad Levy. Maccabi again came back with 2 quick goals making it an interesting last section of the match.
Strangely a further 4 goals came BPR’s way rather than a tense nervous ending, Greene completed his hatrick and added another, Tal Feingold hit a long ranger and there was a final encore from Jasper Van Veen playing against his old team. Maccabi’s goals came from Sam Gordon, Sol Mattatia and Will Feldman. With the goal difference, Broughton just about displaced Maccabi at the top of the table and will remain there till the new year with no more league matches scheduled in December.
Earlier in the day, Jewventus had a chance to close the gap on the top two but lost for the second successive week, Reich Masters doing the damage this time around with a comprehensive 4-0 win which puts them level with Jewventus and all to play for in the second half of the season just 4 points adrift of the 2 frontrunners. Goals came from Avi Libbert, Gary Freeman, Adam Cobb and an own goal.
