Beitar batters Kfar Saba for first victory of the season

Beitar Jerusalem finally registered its first win of the Premier League season on Monday night, while Hapoel Tel Aviv made it two victories in a row.

Beitar had only lost one of its first four matches, but three lackluster draws and the fact it only managed to score two goals over that period already had many of the team’s fans calling for the head of coach Slobodan Drapic.

However, the smiles returned to the stands at Teddy Stadium after Liroy Zhairi got the hosts off to a flying start with his third-minute opener. Jesus Rueda (29) and Nikita Rukavytsya (40) made it 3-0 by the halftime break on the way to a 3-1 triumph, with Raz Cohen’s 79th-minute goal of little consolation for Kfar Saba, which dropped to its third straight loss.
