Un­beaten Li­ons claim ti­tle on the fi­nal day

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

LON­DON Mac­cabi Li­ons Un­der Nines were crowned cham­pi­ons of the Wat­ford Friendly League White Di­vi­sion. Hav­ing strung to­gether a seven-match un­beaten run, they went into their fi­nal game against Hemel Hemp­stead need­ing a draw to claim their ti­tle on the last day of the sea­son. Mikey Perkins, golden boot win­ner Morgan Leizer (2), Ja­cob Brunert and Char­lie Dryer helped them wrap up a 5-2 vic­tory.

Lon­don Mac­cabi Li­ons Un­der 11s won the Chor­ley­wood six-a-side com­pe­ti­tion with­out con­ced­ing a goal.

The Row­ley Lane team won all their group games and they eased into the semi-fi­nals as group win­ners. They put five past Har­vesters in the semi-fi­nal to set up a fi­nal against de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Lit­tle Gad­des­den. Li­ons held their nerve to win the fi­nal in a penalty shootout with Jor­dan Free­man, Sammy Kingston, Ted­die Leven­fiche, Benji Levene and cap­tain-for-the-day Ben My­ers con­vert­ing while keeper Jake Krais made the all-im­por­tant save.

Hen­don In­ter Schools dom­i­nated the Un­der 15 five-a-side com­pe­ti­tion with the A team con­quer­ing the Bs in the fi­nal.

HIS A started well with a 4-1 suc­cess over Stone­grove A. They went on to beat tour­na­ment favourites Scrab­ble and Stone­grove B cour­tesy of a brace from Shaya Grunfeld.

HIA B over­came Scrab­ble 2-0 be­fore rout­ing Stone­grove B 6-1 with Dovi Wertzberger steal­ing the show.

Need­ing only a draw to pip their B team to the post, the As were forced to come from be­hind to snatch sil­ver­ware with strikes from JJ Kimche, Grunfeld and su­per­sub Eli Stim­ler earn­ing them a 3-1 suc­cess.

Stone­grove Park U12s com­pleted a fine one-two at the AJY five-a-sides. The As nar­rowly beat the sec­ond string in a com­pe­ti­tion where nei­ther Stone­grove side lost a match.
