Soccer: Hapoel Beersheba targeting first part of treble

Two seasons after Maccabi Tel Aviv became the first team to win the Israeli treble, Hapoel Beersheba’s quest to emulate the achievement reaches its first decisive point when it faces Ironi Kiryat Shmona in the Toto Cup final in Netanya on Wednesday.

The Toto Cup is often overlooked by clubs, being used as an opportunity to give bench players a chance to prove themselves or a trial to a potential recruit. However, that all changes when teams happen to reach the latter stages, with the lure of another piece of silverware, as unattractive as it may be, too strong to resist.
