The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO BY DANNY CARO

FOOT­BALL DAVID Gar­bacz has warned Hen­don United’s ti­tle ri­vals: “Write us off at your peril.”

The for­mer champions re­turned to win­ning ways with an em­phatic 7-0 vic­tory over SPEC FC in the MGBSFL Premier Divi­sion.

Zac Lewis was the hat-trick hero in a one-sided con­test, with Josh Har­ris (2) and Dovi Fehler (2) adding the oth­ers.

Hen­don boss Gar­bacz com­mented: “We did what we had to do to keep our­selves firmly in the ti­tle race.

“Af­ter not earn­ing three points for quite a few weeks that was al­ways the pri­or­ity but the fact we scored seven in the process did add some gloss and has done won­ders for our con­fi­dence.”

SPEC player-man­ager Ricky Lawrence ad­mit­ted his team were sec­ond best. He said: “Hen­don are a very good side and we didn’t quite make it dif­fi­cult enough for them. We kept go­ing to the end though but there is quite sim­ply too big a gulf be­tween the sides.”

A deadly dou­ble from Daniel Garfin­kle kept Red­bridge Jewish Care A firmly in con­tention as they out­classed Brady Mac­cabi 6-1.

Dean Ny­man, Ben Sol­losi, Nate Kashket and Danny Berg clinched the points as RJC reg­is­tered their eighth win in 10 matches.

RJC boss Jon Ja­cobs re­marked: “Red­bridge are well and truly back and are a threat to any­one who thinks the ti­tle is de­cided.”

Brady joint-man­ager Eli Dagul said: “Red­bridge were lively from the start and utilised their pace to great ef­fect. Hats off to them, we weren’t at the races.”

A soli­tary ef­fort from Harry Mar­low earned Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions A max­i­mum points against FC Team A.

FC Team boss Mitch Young com­mented: “Credit to Lions, they de­fended su­perbly and are prob­a­bly the best side de­fen­sively in the league.”

Lions B were in­debted to an out­stand­ing per­for­mance from goal­keeper James Harpin as they edged past pro­mo­tion ri­vals

in Divi­sion One. Michael Ken­ley (2) and Sammy Kingston en­sured the Lions main­tained their slen­der ad­van­tage, with Yoel Deal and Shim Ben­soor re­ply­ing for City.

Finch­ley boss Joel Holder re­marked: “I can’t quite be­lieve how we did not take max­i­mum points.

“The boys ab­so­lutely bossed the game, es­pe­cially the first half where we could have been four or five goals ahead.”

Sam Rank ex­pressed relief af­ter ti­tle-chas­ing “got the job done” with a 2-0 suc­cess over

B. Strikes from Brad Gayer and Kane Hopps saw the east Lon­don­ers ex­tend their un­beaten run to 11 matches. Red­bridge re­main within a point of lead­ers Lions B with a game in hand.

Rank said: “It was im­por­tant to raise our game against one of the weaker teams. The ob­jec­tive was three points and a clean sheet and the boys achieved it.”

Ray Abra­hams in­sists “talk of pro­mo­tion is pre­ma­ture” af­ter

FC boosted their hopes of top-flight foot­ball next sea­son with a 3-0 win over Faith­fold A.

El­liot Espinoza, Zac Sum­mer­field and top-scorer Josh Bharier eased them home.

Scrab­ble boss Ray Abra­hams com­mented: “We have five games left and a big job to do so we have to stay fo­cused. These play­ers will give ev­ery­thing and are a credit to the club. They de­serve suc­cess.”
