Our impressive and historic start to the 2022/23 season continues after our third win in three games, a feat we've never achieved before in our 7 years as a team.
Playing away in Yehud is never an easy task and in recent years we've struggled to come away from the small pitch with a result. Bnei Yehud reached the promotion play-offs last season, beating us both home and away in the process.
With that in mind, we were determined to change the outcome this team and were in a confident mood, having won our first two games.
The only change in the lineup from last week's win at home to Ruach Tel Aviv was Isaac Kahtan coming in a left-back, with Evgeny Kart abroad. The holiday season is continuing to be an issue in terms of squad numbers, with only two outfield players on the bench again for this game.
Nonetheless, the players on the pitch were up to the challenge and started the game well, playing good football and thwarting any Bnei Yehud attacks. Vlad Kart then made history by scoring his 50th goal for Inter Aliyah, becoming the club's all-time top scorer in the process, with his long-ranged shot flying into the top corner.
Our dominance remained for the entire first half and the game's dynamic then changed as the Yehud playmaker kicked Gaston Fratesi whilst he was on the ground, receiving a straight red card for his troubles.
It was clear at half time that we were in control of the game and needed to simply finish the game in a professional and calm manner to take away the points. However, the second half was anything but that.
Vlad got his second of the game with another long-ranged effort that took a deflection to wrongfoot the keeper and give us a two-goal advantage. It didn't last long though, as Yehud's dangerous set pieces caused a mess in our defence and they scored to get back in the game.
The match became very messy, with both teams attacking relentlessly and giving the referee a busy afternoon with non-stop fouls. The next foul proved significant as Gaston Fratesi again tempted a Yehud player to take him down, this time in the penalty box and a second yellow for the opponent took them down to 9 men.
Ron Sharifi stepped up to score the resulting penalty and reclaim our two-goal lead. Yet, Yehud were in no mood to give in and still searched for goals despite being two men down. They were rewarded for their efforts with a solo goal from their substitute to bring the score to 3-2.
As Yehud chased for an equalizer in the closing stages, we made sure to finally kill the game off as substitute Roni Sirosky calmly found Vlad for the Russian striker to complete his hat trick and secure the three points.
Vlad now leads the league's scoring with 8 goals in just three games, while the win keeps us on top of the Liga Gimmel table with a 100% record.
