Greens grab derby spoils in dramatic fashion

Maccabi Haifa continued its recent revival with a 3-2 win over Hapoel Haifa in the derby on Sunday, climbing up to fourth place in the Premier League standings while handing its bitter rival’s survival hopes another blow.

The Greens led by two goals at the break, but Hapoel equalized in the 68th minute. Maccabi would nevertheless leave Haifa Stadium with all three points thanks to Ofek Fishler’s own goal eight minutes later, leapfrogging Hapoel Ra’anana into fourth, while Hapoel remained in the relegation zone, two points from safety.
