The clash of the top-two in Division One saw Raiders end Chigwell’s wining start, while Marshside picked up their first win of the season in Division Two…
Raiders maintained their 100 percent winning start to the season – as Chigwell lost theirs, as goals from Gideon Gold and James Cartmell saw the former to a 2-0 win – and go six points clear at the top of the table.
Manager Elan Ovits told jewishnews.co.uk: “We knew this was going to be a tough game against the champs, but I thought we outplayed Chigwell in all departments and deserved our win with two fantastic goals.
“It’s very early days to get carried away, but we’re currently playing some great football and look foward to the next game.”
Lions A recorded their first win of the season as they beat Scrabble 3-0, thanks to a brace from Craig Pearl, with Hadley Silver also hitting the back of the net.
In the only game in the division, Marshside recorded their first win of the season. Jason Rich, Justin Woolf and Gil Barel all scored in a 3-2 win over Brady Maccabi B, Roger Kay scored the visitor’s consolation.
