Jaffa recorded an emphatic 6-0 victory over Modiin in the JC Olim League.

A booking error at the Modiin home pitch meant that this game was played at a neutral venue in south Tel Aviv.

It was not long until the team from down the road in Jaffa took an early lead. Playing up front in place of his suspended brother, Daniel Berkeley tucked away his first of the night to put Jaffa ahead.

The following 20 minutes saw Modiin come back into the game and dominate possession without creating too many shooting opportunities.

A wonder goal from Yoni Sidi helped England FC maintain their 100 per cent record as they edged past Jerusalem in the battle between last season's top two finishers.

The meeting in Modiin saw England were looking to protect an perfect record against a Jerusalem side starting to find form at the right time.

Jerusalem were well marshalled by Dan Kosky and league veteran Danny Newman who were both outstanding at keeping the England team to little more than half chances and long shots in the first half.

Debutant from Chile Javier Mendez’s first touch in the JC Olim League could not have been better. A pin-point pass found Eli Warner on the edge of the box and the former North West Neasden striker composed himself to slot home into the bottom corner.

Ra’anana climbed joint-top of the JC Olim League after completing a 5-3 victory over Aviv City.

In the weekend’s only match, City, who went into the game without a win, started faster and more positively. They came out of the blocks well, forcing a couple of fine saves from keeper Robin Burkeman Ra’aana.

It was City who made the breakthrough after 10 minutes. A great move and Daniel Rahamin set up Ben Nassim who fired home from an acute angle – the first time that City have led a game.
