3) Louis Coque (Los Camden B) – A 30-yard free-kick into the right hand top bins. Messi, Beckham and Ronny Rosenthal would have been proud
4) Rocky Spitzer (Hendon United) – A 25-yeard free-kick – delivered with Xhaka-esque swaz
5) Zac Lewis (Hendon United) – A trademark weaving run avoiding leg breakers as well as leaving four players on the floor, before slotting home

QUOTES OF THE WEEK:
CYRIL ANEKSTEIN CUP FIRST ROUND:
FAIRLOP FC 1 LOS CAMDEN B 1 (Fairlop won 4-3 on pens)
James Jaconelli scored from the penalty spot in stoppage time – before he and his teammates kept their composure in the shoot-out to prevail.
Manager Jake Sanders told jewishnews.co.uk: “We were far from our best today. In truth, we haven’t been good for a while, but that’s six consecutive victories, which is a good sign.
“We plugged away today and finally got our reward in stoppage-time and our golden boy James Jaconelli stuck away the resulting penalty after Adam Goldman was fouled.
“The boys never stopped trying, despite the majority being hungover. Massive credit to Ryan Cole who played in goal today as our first three goalkeepers were all injured and unavailable.”
Louis Coque’s wonder goal had given the visitors the lead.
FAITHFOLD B 0 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 3
A hat-trick from Nate Kashket saw Redbridge comfortably through.
Player-manager Sam Rank told jewishnews.co.uk: “We weren’t at the races today first half, but once we upped the game, the game was very easy, and pleasing for all too see.
“Next week we get back to league business, with a big game Jewdinese. We will welcome back a few games, changers which will be a massive boost for the team.”
Faithfold manager Doron Shooter told jewishnews.co.uk: “I’m very proud of my team today, we played against a Redbridge side who are having a wonderful season and are sitting at the top of Division One. In my opinion we matched them for most of the game, despite having many first-team regulars missing. Had it not been for a few individual errors, I don’t believe they would have scored today so we can be proud of the work that we put in.
“Having said all of that we wish Redbridge the best of luck in the next round of the cup, as we look to prepare for a big game against their B’s next week.”
FC TEAM 2 FAITHFOLD A 5
Faithfold showed its class as it turned in a polished performance.
David Leiwy helped himself to a hat-trick, with Yarden Sharifian and Lorian Madanes also on target.
Player-manager Avi Markiewicz told jewishnews.co.uk: “We had a depleted squad but we had enough to have a comfortable game.
“We started well, dominated the first half and went in 4-1 ahead, the only downside was that they scored with their only shot of the first half just before the break.
“We moved the ball across the back and through the field really well, getting David Leiwy and Eshed Rahav on the ball was key and once they had it there, the damage was done. Yarden Sharifian up front was a real handful, so strong and powerful, scored a tidy goal and created a second with a wonderful flick on for Leiwy.
“The second half we were far too complacent. We invited pressure and started trying to be too clever. They got another goal and we weren’t hanging on to the ball well enough for a team two divisions above their opponents.
“They did really well to match us in the second half, but with about 15 minutes to go they had a man sent off and with that any small hope of a possible comeback was squashed, but in reality all the damage was done in the first half. With five minutes to go Lorian Madanes whipped a beautiful free kick into the top corner from right out wide to seal the deal.”
Conor Perl and David Cohen scored for Team, for whom player-manager Mitch Young told jewishnews.co.uk: “We defended abysmally in the first half and gifted Faithfold a strong lead. We were just about in the game thanks to Connor’s great goal.
“I changed the tactics in the second half, put an extra man in midfield and that saw as dominate the second half. We got a goal back and then with 20 minutes left we scored again only for the referee somehow not to see it went over the line.
“The referee then showed a straight red card to our player for dissent when clearly this is a sin bin. If the goal stood and Josh remained on the pitch I am confident we had the momentum to level the scores. I am proud of our second half performance, we all feel aggrieved but will move on. They have some talented players and good luck to them for the remainder of the competition.”
HENDON UNITED SPORTS 16 TEMPLE FORTUNE 0
The most one-sided of ties saw five goals from Rocky Spitzer help Hendon to the most convincing win of the season to date.
Dovi Fehler and Chaim Korman both scored hat-tricks, Zack Lewis scored twice, with Mordy Weiler, Avi Korman and Yehuda Korman.
Hendon manager Jordan Sapler told jewishnews.co.uk: “It’s not always easy going into a game as heavy favourites, but we started with exactly the right attitude and carried that on till the final whistle.
“We played some excellent football with the kind of style we have been working on, centred around quick passing and sharp movement and the large scoreline was well deserved.
“It was a good run out for some of our boys coming back from injury and those who haven’t had a full 90, and it should put us in stronger shape as a squad in the weeks to come.”
HERTSWOOD VALE 2 BRADY MACCABI 3
Vale put in brave performance, but still came away with nothing as they were beaten by the top-flight side.
Marc Rister, Graeme Grossman and Josh Curtis scored for the visitors, with manager Joel Nathan telling jewishnews.co.uk: “At last we get a win but it wasn’t pretty… we only got going after 20 minutes and that was after we had a perfectly good goal chalked off for some unknown reason. we then went behind to a dubious penalty but created chances galore as the half ended and should have been level before half-time
“We started the second half as we finished the first and should have had a penalty when goal bound header was handled however for whatever reason the ref didn’t give it.
“We then got our goal despite it trying to be chalked off by the assistant linesman when a deep cross was headed in by Graeme Grossman but the ref saw sense and overruled him.
“We got our second from the spot through Marc Rister and quickly got the third when Josh Curtis who was excellent through out the game finished off a good move with a great shot from the left hand side of the box which should have killed the game off however we allowed Hertswood back into the game when they scored an excellent second in injury time…
“Hertswood are a good young team and we wish them well in the league this season.”
Ben Mandell scored twice for the beaten hosts.
HMH 4 MILL HILL DONS 3
HMH edged this seven-goal thriller to book its place in the next round.
Goals from George Goldberg, Oscar Wagner, Adam Abadi and Ariel Rahamim saw it to the win, with manager Avi Goldberg telling jewishnews.co.uk: “We turned, up turned on, but forgot how to put the ball in the back of the net. All credit to them for not giving up and giving us a real scare.”
Adam Bowman, Sam Stead and Zach Cohen scored for The Dons, with manager Brandon Hamme telling jewishnews.co.uk: “I’m really proud of the boys today, they put in a really impressive performance and just came up short.
“With 18 places separating us, a lot of people were expecting HMH to have no difficulties but we went toe to toe with them. It was a big plus having both Sam Stead and Zach Cohen from injury, they both had superb games today and we will be hoping to keep them fit for the weeks ahead.
“There were great performances throughout the team and we were unlucky to not get a fourth goal. Full credit to Avi Goldberg and HMH though, it was clear to see they are a top quality team they played some great stuff throughout.”
NORTH LONDON GALAXY 0 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 7
Raiders went goal crazy as a hat-trick from Charlie Kasler helped them emphatically win this Raiders inter-club match.
