Shirbini rocks Raiders

A fab four-goal salvo from Ben Shirbini enabled table-toppers Faithfold A to finish in seventh heaven after an extraordinary 11-goal thriller against Raiders B.

    Further strikes from Zalmi Cohen, Gav Lewis and Amit Dinowitz completed a stunning win for the Superhoops who have won six out of seven.

    Faithfold started the game off well and had chances but were a goal down in a goalmouth scramble after a long-range set-piece.

    Soon after Faithfold drew level and looked the more likely team to go and score, but as is the way of things they didn't and NLR did.

    Faithfold spoke at half-time and boss Avi Markiewicz "made it clear that nothing less than a convincing win would do".

    His boys responded. They played some really excellent football with most of the joy coming down the wings through David Leiwy and Amit Dinowitz on his debut.

    The Superhoops scored one, two and three in quick succession to take the score to 4-2. The pace of the game slowed a bit and around 70 minutes we scored another couple.

    At 6-2 in front, Faithfold "settled a little too much and allowed a couple of silly goals to go in, including a contentious penalty".

    With things getting a little edgy man-of-the-match Shirbini came back on to score his fourth and really put the game to bed.

    Faithfold player-manager Avi Markiewicz told JC Sport: "After the mauling in the cup last week, it was essential that we bounced back and we certainly did that."

    RAIDERS: Ben Law, Rob Blackman, Danny Bloom, Anthony Goodmaker, Charles Braunstein, Elliott Espinoza, Elad Hertshten, Brandon Sassoon, Dave Esterkin, Jake Gilbert, David Dinkin. Subs: Mark Leader, Scott Waissel, Jacob Gold
