Kiryat Shmona keeps title hopes alive

Ironi Kiryat Shmona remained in hot pursuit of champion Maccabi Tel Aviv on Saturday, while Hapoel Tel Aviv got life without Gili Vermouth off to a winning start.

Kiryat Shmona closed within a single point of the league leader with a 3-2 win over Hapoel Petah Tikva, with Maccabi Tel Aviv not visiting Maccabi Netanya until Sunday.

After spending more than three consecutive months in first place, Kiryat Shmona’s title challenge was derailed in recent weeks, with Barak Bachar’s team picking up just four points from four matches.
