The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

FOOT­BALL NICK Stern in­sists L’Equipe’s Pe­ter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy gi­ant-killing over first divi­sion Los Blan­cos was no fluke.

Two goals from de­fender Richard Alexan­der, in­clud­ing a late win­ner, plus one apiece from Jon Kay and Stern in­spired L’Equipe to a 4-3 vic­tory. Jono Gaon, Alex Lewis and Adam Hersh were the marks­men for Blan­cos.

L’Equipe boss Nick Stern com­mented: “I was ex­tremely proud of the 12 war­riors on the pitch. We wanted it more than our op­po­nents and this showed through the re­sult.”

Blan­cos boss Jonathan Ison said: “There were not too many pos­i­tives from the game. We were not at the races. It looked like no-one fan­cied a trip up to Manch­ester in a fu­ture round, so they just threw the towel in.”

Mitch Young said FC Team B were at their ruth­less best as they pro­gressed 3-1 against Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions B cour­tesy of a hat-trick from Richard Salmon. Char­lie Reuben replied.

Team boss Mitch Young said: “I’m ex­tremely pleased with the per­for­mance and the re­sult. We were well or­gan­ised, dis­ci­plined and very ef­fec­tive in our at­tack­ing play.”

Alex Elf, Will Ufland and Oli Nathan edged North Lon­don Raiders C past HMH Old Boys 3-2. Do­minic Feldman and Adam Abadi struck for HMH

NLR’s David Domb com­mented: “HMH were a real credit to their foot­ball club. They played the game in the right way and were un­lucky to be on the los­ing side.”

HMH boss Avi Gold­berg said: “We had ap­prox­i­mately 75 per cent of pos­ses­sion and 25 chances com­pared to five from Raiders. On an­other day it would have been a rout. We bat­tered them.”
