Scoreboard and Upcoming Fixtures

SENIORS-FIRSTS  Round 7: Maccabi 2 – 8 Footscray

Maccabi 1sts received its first loss for season going down 8-2 to Footscray in a round 2 make up game on Wednesday night. 

In cold, wet and windy conditions, a good start by Maccabi had them getting forward with ease, despite missing a few senior players. A quick lapse of concentration from Maccabi found themselves 3-0 down going into the second half. 

In the second half Maccabi started the same way they did in the first half with good attack up forward but couldn't take their chances, despite plenty of short corners. Another lapse in concentration saw Footscray slot 3 more home. 

Maccabi then moved forward again and a ball was played into the circle from Dan Guttman for a great deflection by David Zwier to slot the ball in. Footscray then moved forward again and slotted 2 more home. Ethan Faifer was good in goals but didn't have much help from his team mates. Dan Guttman put a goal in to make it 2 for Maccabi. 

Needless to say Marc Aarons wasn't a happy coach at the end of game but it's still a long season and we have high hopes for the rest. 

Upcoming Fixtures: 

Round 8: vs Hawthorn Red    05-Jun at 12:30 at Albert Park

Round 9: vs Powerhouse/St Kilda  19-Jun at 17:00 at Albert Park

SENIORS-SECONDS   Round 7: Maccabi 1 – 2 Old Camberwell Grammarians

In a very tight tussle with Old Camberwell Grammar the seconds lost 2-1, it was by far Maccabi’s best performance this season. David Zwier and Lior Aufgang ran hard upfront and earned a couple short corners, a well executed “Shatzi” by Mark Aarons and Darren Krawitz resulted in a goal for “The President”, unfortunately a defensive lapse late in the second half allowed Old Camberwell to score the winner.

Upcoming Fixtures:

Round 8: vs Waverley  05-Jun at 14:00 at Albert Park

Round 9: vs Old Carey  19-Jun at 12:30 at KNG - Koonung Secondary School

MASTERS   Round 7: Maccabi 3 – 3 La Trobe Uni

Maccabi played the undefeated Latrobe on Monday night at Albert Park. In an eventful night where Tomahawk Grunny put on the umpires vest saw Maccabi score 2 goals in the first half. Both goals were scored by Danger Wayne Levy. The first was excellent while the other was quite the opposite. In a first Game Changer Rappa started at Left Half and dominated the defence assisted by Big Dave Birnbaum and New Threads Seklar. The second half saw the Game Changer Rappa sneak forward to score the goal of the year. To describe it would not do it justice. When Rappa came off to rest his tired legs the opposition scored 3 in a row.

Come down and join Eyal on the sideline to encourage Rappa to keep up these incredible match reports!

Upcoming Fixtures:

Round 8: vs Werribee  06-Jun at 21:00 at Albert Park

Round 9: vs Altona  20-Jun at 19:30 at ALT - Altona Hockey Ground

UNDER 16s   Round 5: Maccabi 3 – 0 TEM

The U16s continued to improve with a 3-0 win over TEM.

The team controlled the game, moved the ball around the field beautifully and were able to generate many circle penetrations.

Defence was solid and the midfield were feeding the forwards with good passes and using our right side to attack.

Once again we were a little wasteful in front of goals and the final score flattered our opposition.

Goals N.Sweet 2, V.Page 1

Best. J.Samuels, E.Goldman, J.Fink, T.Gore and several others!

Upcoming Fixtures:

Round 6: vs KBH Brumbies  05-Jun at 11:00 at Albert Park

Round 7: vs Camberwell Blue   19-Jun at 11:00 at KNG - Koonung Secondary School

UNDER 12s   Round 5: Maccabi 3 – 0 Knox

The under 12s notched up their second victory of the season with a 3-0 victory over Knox. It was an excellent team effort, with the goals being scored by Jeremy Grunfeld, Jacob Irons and Henry Wise.
