Wheel of For­tune

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO

Goals from Jake Marks and Jor­dan Shar­i­fian boosted Tem­ple For­tune’s chances of fin­ish­ing run­ners-up in Di­vi­sion Two with a pol­ished 2-0 vic­tory over Boca.

For­tune boss Si­mon Lin­den com­mented: “This game had po­ten­tial ba­nana skin writ­ten all over it as I had sev­eral play­ers miss­ing, but I’m proud of the boys for dig­ging in and win­ning the game with yet an­other clean sheet.

“Boca pushed us in the sec­ond half, and maybe de­served a goal, but once again my back five dealt with ev­ery­thing re­ally well.”

Boca’s An­ton Ny­man re­marked: “We played very well and were dis­ci­plined through­out. We can take some courage from the game but have two tough ones to fol­low in the next few weeks.”

FOOT­BALL JON Ja­cobs in­sists Red­bridge Jewish Care will ap­proach Sun­day’s ti­tle show­down against MGBSFL lead­ers Oak­wood with no fear fol­low­ing their 10-1 de­mo­li­tion of SPEC FC.

A four-goal salvo from Daniel Garfin­kle laid the foun­da­tions for the goal fest, with Dean Ny­man (2), James Berkley, Matt Berkley, Zac Neiman and Sam Sol­losi com­plet­ing the rout.

RJC boss Jon Ja­cobs re­marked: “The

boys are ready for the Oak­wood clash. They’ve all had valu­able game-time so are ready for what is a big chal­lenge be­tween the league’s top two sides.”

Craig Cole fired a con­so­la­tion for SPEC whose player-man­ager Ricky Lawrence ad­mit­ted: “Red­bridge were far too strong for us.”

Two goals from David Smouha steered Cam­den Park to their first win un­der new boss Stir­ling Kay. Sacha Nusen­baum and David Kha­latschi were also on the mark in the 4-0 rout­ing of FC Team A.

Kay com­mented: “I was de­lighted for the lads who have worked very hard. Given the fact we have not scored or cre­ated many goals all sea­son, to score four was very pleas­ing.”

A stun­ning free-kick from Josh Gold­stein earned NL Raiders B a point in a thriller against Oak­wood B.

Rafi Bloom scored both goals for Oak­wood, who led twice, against a strong Raiders team, fea­tur­ing A-team stars Matt Stock and Jonny Kay. Josh Green was NLR’s other scorer.

Oak­wood boss Ja­son Stein com­mented: “The per­for­mance level was where it should be. Some of our play­ers put in a dis­play that was the best they’ve ever given.

“Credit to Jonny Adel­man and his side who were also bril­liant and ev­ery bit as phys­i­cal as us. We’ve al­ways had bril­liant matches against Raiders B and to­day was no dif­fer­ent.”

NLR man­ager Jonny Adel­man said: “Ja­son rightly de­scribed it as a re­ally good con­test, which was il­lu­mi­nated by a quite stun­ning free-kick from Josh.

“We played some re­ally lovely pass­ing foot­ball but couldn’t get the win­ner our play de­served.”

An in­jury-time strike from Rob Black­man en­sured Scrab­ble FC main­via tain their ti­tle charge with a hard­fought win over Ath­letic Bil­baum.

Jonathan Peters marked his first game of the sea­son with the other in a game of late goals, as Scrab­ble came from a goal down to claim a dra­matic win.

Scrab­ble were forced to field vet­er­ans Jon Yantin and Jonny Sum­mer­field, play­ing along­side his 17-year-old nephew Zac.

Re­lieved Scrab­ble boss Ray Abra­hams said: “I’m so proud of the to­tal com­mit­ment shown by the lads. There was a de­ter­mi­na­tion not to give up, even after go­ing be­hind late on which would have nor­mally been good enough to give Bil­baum the points.”

Ben Old­stein, Craig Phillips, Barry Green, Jor­dan Sapler and Jimmy Cas­tle earned Red­bridge C a 5-3 suc­cess over Cat­ford & Brom­ley Maccabi.

Ja­cob Rich­ler-Kleiman (2) and Ash­ley Stokes replied.
