FAITHFOLD 3 MACCABI LONDON LIONS 3
Faithfold were unable to close the gap on the leaders to a point as they were held to just that in this six-goal thriller.

Reiss Mogilner scored all three for the Lions, with manager Samuel Marchant telling jewishnews.co.uk: “There was a lot of space on the pitch today and had we played football as we can, then we could have won the three points.

“We had a few clear opportunities early on which weren’t taken and when that happens, you usually get punished as we did when we went 1-0 down. We then reacted well and went into half time leading 2-1 after a great indirect free-kick and some lovely wing work from James Gold.

“Second half we didn’t seem to have a foothold and Faithfold looked comfortable and put us under pressure. We went 3-2 down but managed to pull one back with 15 to go to share the points. It was a well-fought game and the result was a fair one.”

Player-manager Avi Markiewicz scored twice for The Greens, with David Leiwy also on target. Markiewicz told jewishnews.co.uk: “As usual my weekend is one of worry – trying to get a competitive team together is such a headache every week.

“This week was no different. We were missing Josh Wagner, Ben Shirbini, Louis Naghten, Darra Rezagi, Johnny Gahan, Avi Garson, Dovi Vogel and no keeper either. In the end we managed to to put together a team.

“In the end we felt like it was two dropped points but it was a great game that I’m sure David Woolf on the sidelines enjoyed watching.”

NORTH LONDON GALAXY 3 BAYERN MINCHA 1
Galaxy player-manager Luke Lewis led by example as he helped himself to a hat-trick.

Lewis told jewishnews.co.uk: “An excellent game from Galaxy and superb response to a difficult few weeks. Up to third now thanks to Jewdinese’s loss.. certainly not where we want to be but we’re working on it.

“We battled from the off today and understood the importance of the first 20 minutes (for once) going 2-0 up instead of 2-0 down this time! They equalised by capitalising on a Nathan error gifting them a goal (I suppose we had to give them something to cheer about) and bar that did nisht all.

“I completed my hat-trick – a Pirlo/Verrati esque 40 yard ball by Alexander released Jonny Daitz who disgustingly ignored the square ball to me, obviously it didn’t go in, but I gobbled up the rebound like Bailey Snow does chips.”

REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 4 JEWDINESE 2
Redbridge maintained top spot in the table after they overcame a battling Jewdinese side.

Kier Dickson scored twice, with Nate Kashket and Dan Andrews also on target. Player-manager Sam Rank told jewishnews.co.uk: “Today, we knew we were in for a game. Jewudiense played very well, and in the first half had a lot of the play, but could not create many clear cut chances. A big footballing statement is goals changes game, and us going 2-1 up was the big killer punch for today victory. The difference today was the clinical finishing by the RJC A front men.

“Darren and his boys are a very good young side. Jewdiense had their chances to go in front, and these chances will come back to bite them. We hope Darren and his boys, can do the business in there return fixture against Fairlop. It was also very nice to see the game finishing in the right way, with both team showing each other MGBFSL respect that should go with all football after a heated game.

“After today game, my phone was going non stop, with the win today with Fairlop messages. The game on the 18th November, has been titled one of the biggest games in MGBFSL football in the last 5 years.

“Once again, with no game for Fairlop today, they came again with the Notepads, and they wished they came with Apple Mac. There hands are very tired from writing all those notes.”

Scott Oldstein and Brandon Sassoon scored the visitor’s consolation strikes.

Young told jewishnews.co.uk: “We are playing some brilliant attacking football at the moment and it is great to be part of it.

“Raiders could not deal with our attacks and were blown away. We will score against any team and now we have some consistency we should climb the league pretty quickly.”

Jonny Blain scored for The Masters, for whom joint-manager James Cartmell told jewishnews.co.uk: “Nothing really to say, other than FC Team obviously were worth winners and that we were very poor. Very. We won’t (I hope) play that badly again.”

A hat-trick from James Millet saw Vale claim a thrilling win.

“They deserved their third goal with the last kick of the game. I’ve no doubt, our reverse fixture in two weeks’ time will be another cracker. They’re a really great bunch of lads and we enjoyed the match today.”

Matt Leader, Dan Cohen and Josh Green scored for the hosts, for whom player-manager Ricky Lawrence told jewishnews.co.uk: “We can’t have any complaints about the result, the better team won. It was another good game for the neutral though.”
