Soccer: Beitar stuns Kiryat Shmona 3-1 at Teddy

Ironi Kiryat Shmona’s Premier League title hopes suffered another blow on Sunday night, following a 3-1 defeat to Beitar Jerusalem at Teddy Stadium.

Guy Levy got his tenure as Beitar coach off to a dream start thanks to two Shir Tzedek own-goals and Kiryat Shmona could find itself four points behind league-leader Maccabi Tel Aviv, should the two-time defending champion beat Hapoel Tel Aviv in the derby on Monday.

Kiryat Shmona midfielder Adrian Rochet (27) quickly canceled out Tzedek’s (23) first own-goal, but Tzedek found the back of his goalkeeper’s net yet again in the 76th minute and Ofir Kriaf clinched Beitar’s win in stoppage time.
