Beersheba on verge of State Cup semifinals

Hapoel Beersheba all but secured its progress to the State Cup semifinals for a second straight season on Tuesday night, beating Maccabi Yavne of the National League 3-0 in the first leg on the road in windy and sandy conditions.

After a balanced first half, in-form striker Shlomi Arbeitman handed Beersheba the lead with his fifth goal in the past three matches in the 49th minute.

Siraj Nasar (75) doubled the advantage just 30 seconds after coming on as a substitute, before Maor Melikson (80) wrapped up the scoring against his boyhood club.
