PMT final: Player ratings

By Danny Caro, May 6, 2012


Russell Corin - a spectator for long spells, produced one brilliant save from a free-kick after the opener, kicked well and one important punch. 7/10

Alex Gilbert - experienced defender was calmness personified in the storm of some determined wing-play. Revelled in the limelight with Motti Colman back in Israel. Never lets anyone down. 7/10

Josh Lipman - David Garbacz's man-of-the-match. Made some key interceptions to ensure there was no way through for a spirited Oakwood team. Didn't allow Jason Lindsay to get into the game. Brilliant positonal sense capped another top performance. One of, if not the, players of the season. 9/10

Alex Rosenthal - Booked. Solid throughout but given one or two uncomfortable moments. 7

Martin Smulovitch - arguably his toughest game of the season. Was given the run-around by Kintish early on but played the percentages well. One great cross almost set up a late winner in normal time. 7/10

Yoav Kestenbaum - struggled to make an impact against a big-hitting Oakwood midfield. Subbed. 7/10

Ari Last - needed to use all his physical attributes against determined opposition. Was probably expecting an easier 90 minutes. Always a goal threat. 7/10

Josh Bentley [(capt) - delighted to start following his role from the bench in the Anekstein final. Won his fair share of headers and added muscle to the Hendon midfield. 7/10

Ben Lauffer - given a rough ride by Dan Geey and Adam Levine. Can't remember the last time he didn't boss it and have things all his own way. But kept his discipline well. 7/10

Greg Corin - Hendon's man with the golden touch. Always looks to have time and show some nice touches. In the right place at the right time to open the scoring with another crucial goal. Another contender for JC MSFL Player of the Season. 8/10

Avidan Last - as always, 10 out of 10 for effort. Never gives up lost causes and kept going to the end. Deserved his goal that clinched the cup. A real team player. 7/10

Danny Kon - stretched the Oakwood defence with his pace and movement. 8/10
Rafi Kon - solid. 7/10



Ollie Gee - some will say he could've done better with both goals. Otherwise solid. 7/10

Dave Cohen - "The Jewish Paul Parker" lived up to the hype with an impressive display. Gave as good as he got against Greg Corin and bombed forward at every opportunity. Didn't deserve to be on the losing side. 8/10

Jonny Beilin - Oakwood's star man this season put in a typically hard-working shift. 8/10

Louis Basger - a real class act. 9/10

Ilan Scorah - an excellent foil for Basger. A near faultless display for Mr Reliable. 8/10

Adam Levine [(capt) - played through the pain barrier to put in an heroic shift. A real warrior. 9/10

Dan Geey - did an excellent job stifling the threat of Lauffer and Last in the middle of the park. We saw another side of his game today, although ultimately, it was a bad weekend with Liverpool also losing finalists. 8/10

Josh Rubin - worked hard and took up some good positions. 7/10

Jason Lindsay - struggled to make an impact with Josh Lipman breathing down his neck. 7/10

Brad Wine - a dangerous customer who terrorised the Hendon left-back with his pace and power. 8/10

Anthony Kintish - put in a real shift to personify the team's work ethic. 8/10

James Abrams - popped up with some crucial goals during the cup run, but not today. 7/10
Dan Abrams - came oh so close to a famous equaliser. 7/10
Dan Ash - worked his socks off after joining the action. 7/10
