Lions B edge past feisty Fortune B

    JC CYRIL ANEKSTEIN CUP ROUND 1
    LONDON MACCABI LIONS B 2 TEMPLE FORTUNE B 1
    Second division London Maccabi Lions B were given an almighty scare before they squeezed into the next round of the JC League Cup against Temple Fortune B at Gosling Sports Centre.

    In an evenly contested first half, a battling Fortune side matched their opponents despite the two division gap between the teams and went into the break on level terms at 0-0.

    The Lions took the lead early in the second half and scored a second quickly after.

    Fortune continued to press and were rewarded when Dave Sawyer rose high to head home a delicious Jonathan Cohen cross with five mins remaining.

    Fortune assistant-manager Adam Glekin said: "Despite the defeat, I cannot fault the work rate and on another day we might have sneaked a result.

    "I doubt that a neutral observer would have realised that there was a two-division divide between the teams, and if we keep performing the way we have started the season I think we'll be very successful."
