Soccer: Beitar Jerusalem lets down as winless streak continues

Beitar Jerusalem’s winless start to the Premier League season continued with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Bnei Yehuda on Saturday, while Hapoel Tel Aviv finally claimed its first victory of the campaign.

Lidor Cohen gave Beitar the lead in the 21st minute at Bloomfield Stadium after a superb break forward caught the hosts off guard.

However, Beitar would go on to lose a league match after taking the lead for the first time since April 2013, with Bnei Yehuda leveling the score through a Pedro Galvan (49) header before Amir Agajev (57) netted a well-deserved winner with a splendid solo effort.
