The points were shared following an eight-goal thriller in which Amit Dinowitz had put the visitors ahead inside two minutes. This was followed by a second goal after 20 minutes through Zack Lewis.

Raanana rallied, with Danny Rebuk hauling them back into the game and they turned the game on its head with strikes from Ronen Goldsmith and a lovely little backheel from Eyal Slasky to make it 3-2.

Jerusalem fought back to make it 3-3 with a cool finish from Daniel Cohen and then went ahead 4-3 after Jerusalem were awarded a penalty for a handball in the area. As the game was moved into the final 10 minutes Raanan’as Eyal Slaski headed into the top right of the Jerusalem goal for his second goal of the game after a beautiful cross by Nathan Ben Ari from the right hand side of the pitch.
