Rif Mesika arranged a tight 0: 1 to Hadera over Hapoel Haifa
In a training match that took place tonight at Nagler’s House, Hapoel Hadera defeated Hapoel Haifa 0: 1 from a single goal by Rif Mesika in the 35th minute with a beautiful kick from 20 meters. The Reds from Carmel did not play well and it is clear that Haim Sylves has a lot of work to do.
The first half was a clear advantage for Hadera, who did score only once but missed a number of good situations. In the second half the game was balanced. The two teams combined many youngsters, but even in this half Hadera was more dangerous. Asi Goma missed an excellent situation from Mesika’s cooking, and two great kicks by Gilad Abramov were blocked by the Haifa goalkeeper. Hapoel Haifa came close to equalizing in the closing minutes, but did not really endanger the frame.
Coach Sylves made his debut for striker William Agada for the first time. The team from Haifa was missing due to injuries / rest Liran Serdel, Ness Zamir, Ahmad Darawshe, Dor Malul and Eden Ben Best as well as Jasmine Borich who only on Friday will be able to return and train with the other players. In the second half Sylves combined the rest of the roster players who had a hard time scoring a goal. The northern coach said after the game: “It was another good training game for us ahead of the Toto, the team is connecting and improving and our direction is positive.”
