Maccabi make their point

    Tameside League Division Two
    Old General 2
    Manchester Maccabi 2

    Louis Basso struck a second-half equaliser to earn Manchester Maccabi 1st a deserved point at Old General FC.

    Basso’s 75th minute effort gave a slightly understrength Maccabi a share of the spoils against last year’s third division champions.

    Trailing 1-0 at the interval following a defensive error, Martin Simons’ men roared back after the break with David Herman rounding off a wonderfully fluid Maccabi move.

    The visitors continued to look threatening but were hit by a sucker punch when an unstoppable swerving effort flew past Maccabi keeper Josh Samberg.

    But Basso soon had his team level, rifling an effort into the top corner to make it 2-2.

    The home side were growing frustrated and were reduced to ten men after having a player sent off for verbally abusing the referee.

    And that almost proved crucial as Maccabi made the most of their numerical advantage with Michael Green coming desperately close to winning a penalty late on.

    But Maccabi were made to settle for a draw as they continued their unbeaten start to the season.
