Shechter strikes against former team, leads Beitar over Haifa

After off-field happenings involving Beitar Jerusalem dominated the sporting headlines over recent days, the team returned the focus to the field on Monday night, beating Maccabi Haifa 3-0 in Petah Tikva to further solidify its hold on third place in the Premier League standings.

Beitar moved 10 points clear of Hapoel Ra’anana in fourth place with a convincing win in a match which was in doubt until Sunday night.

Beitar dropped its threat to fail to show up for the game after insisting for days that it would do so. The club was unhappy at being forced to host the contest away from Teddy Stadium due to the unruly behavior of its supporters in the game against Bnei Sakhnin.
