Maccabi 2nds hit Rovers for six
MJSL JOAN COLLINS PREMIER DIVISION
HEATON PARK ROVERS 1 MANCHESTER MACCABI 3RD 6
Moshe Hasid and Jordan Kay hit deadly doubles as Manchester Maccabi’s young guns sweep aside Heaton Park Rovers.
Hasid and Kaye’s first-half braces had the visitors, with an average age of just 16, coasting at the break.
Despite taking their foot off the gas, Richard Hamburger and an own goal still saw them run out comfortable winners.
Mid-table Heaton Park grabbed a late consolation via Daniel Franks, but Manchester Maccabi 3rds were always cruising thanks to their early four-goal blitz.
"It was a case of job done in the first-half as we went four goals up," said Richard Hamburger.
"We made a few changes and the intensity dropped off a little.
"But we were always in control thanks to our start. Credit must go to Heaton Park who never gave up."
Heaton Park boss David Seligman admitted defensive errors proved their downfall.
"We were organised against a very good side, but unfortunately individual errors cost us," he said.
"That can have a demoralising effect. But I felt the scoreline did not do us justice."
