In the 6 seasons that we've been playing in Liga Gimmel, Shikun Vaikim are basically the only team we've failed to beat in our history and the winless streak continues for another season after Monday night's defeat.
David Pernitchi made a few changes to the starting lineup, bringing in Daniel Cabral in goal for the suspended Leo Gewertz and handing a debut to Josh Fischbach, formerly of Inter B.
Despite the extensive preparation, we found ourselves behind very early on. A through ball down the channel put the Shikun striker through on goal and he took a few strides before finishing.
A second Shikun goal would come half an hour later, but he despite the two goal deficit, we were playing good football, comfortably moving the ball around and competing with our rivals.
Azanao Aristo had our best chance of the half after a great move from the team, but his shot was straight at the Shikun keeper and we went into the half-time break 2-0 down.
The second half saw the introduction of Roey Sartov as we aimed to get back into the game but a third Shikun goal on the hour mark effectively killed the game off.
Azanao did get a consolation goal after Shikun added a 4th to become our leading goalscorer this season, but it will be a night to forget for us in a game where we were second best and made too many mistakes.
This Friday we take on Elitzur Yafo at home, knowing that a win puts us back in the mix for a playoff spot.
