Strikes from Scott Ansher and Jason Sears extended Brady Maccabi’s lead at the top of Maccabi Masters League Division One.
The defending champions overcame nearest rivals North London Raiders 2-0, with Raiders denied a late revival by a wonder save from Brady keeper Adam Merand.
Division Two table-toppers Glenthorne United B suffered their first defeat of the season. They went down 5-0 to London Maccabi Lions, courtesy of a hat-trick from Marc Morris and goals from David Price and a penalty from Stuart Coutts.
EDRS Stonegrove, last season’s champions, were edged out 3-2 by South Mancs B. Marc Schneiderman (2) and Simon Davidson netted for Mancs whilst Martin Seifert and Mark Kingston replied for EDRS.
Brady B climbed into second place with a 4-2 victory over Norstar. David Feldman put Brady ahead in the second minute with a curling effort from David Sawyer doubling the advantage early in the second half.
Norstar halved the deficit with a header from Ashley Marks but their hopes were crushed when Sawyer restored Brady’s two-goal advantage with his second, and a rasping drive from Roger Kay cemented the points, despite Lee Cohen’s late consolation.
