Stopped in the colony: 1-1 between MS Ashdod and Hapoel Hadera

MS Ashdod was stopped tonight (Saturday) in a draw in the Moshava after finishing 1-1 against Hapoel Hadera. Ashdod was the best team on the grass, attacking, initiating and unquestionably dominating the field, but unfortunately they managed to translate the advantage on the field to only one goal in the 53rd minute after a beautiful team operation when right defender Tom Ben Zaken cooked great for left defender Monterey Kahmani.

Hadera, who almost did not endanger Jaffy’s hair, managed to equalize after a corner kick that was hit inside the head of Ovadia Hatab in the 60th minute.

Ashdod records its first draw after 11 league rounds. Ashdod temporarily rose to second place. As mentioned, the data also show that Ashdod controlled the field, kicked 15 times to the goal, controlled with almost 70 percent of the ball, but unfortunately the offensive quality did not manifest itself tonight in the colony.

The game started with a storm and after seven minutes the result could have been 1: 1, but later it faded. The pace slowed down, the teams were unfocused and inaccurate at the front, and as a result were not dangerous.

Ashdod suffered from wrong decisions by Dean David and Sagiv Yehezkel, Hadera sent long balls to nowhere and the first 45 minutes ended in 0: 0.

In the second half, Ran Ben Shimon and Sharon Mimar made exchanges that softened the center of the field a bit and both teams managed to get to the pitches more easily.

Ashdod won first, but did not know how to maintain the advantage and absorbed the horn from the head of ex-Obeida Hatab. The guest was a little better until the end and she was the one who initiated, but wrong actions in and around the square, prevented her from deciding the deal.

On Tuesday, in the middle of the week, MS Ashdod will meet Hapoel Haifa in a particularly intriguing game.
