Top row (from left to right): Gianni Conti, Aron Soloducho, Andy Gabay, Thomy Alfie, Ron Sharifi, Vlad Kart, Ori Hatuka, Oded Puzis, Daniel Cabral, Ilan Flax, Mono Bechini and Pablo Zayat.

We took on the team second from bottom at home in the wet weather and even though we won big, it was a below-par performance as we played to the level of our opponents.

Borja Lema rested a few of his regular starters, giving first starts of the season to Ori Hatuka and Itay Kugel, while Vlad Kart took the captain's armband for the first time in his Inter Aliyah career.

The Russian striker did not let the responsibility affect his game, as he fired a first half hat trick, moving him up to an incredible 33 goals for the season, the most in the league.

Itay Kugel and Ron Sharifi were also amongst the goals in the first half as we dominated our opposition, but the scoreline could have been even bigger had we stayed more composed with our play.

Hopes of keeping a 4th clean sheet in a row were dashed as Thomy Alfie inadvertently turned a cross past Gianni Conti into our own net, which was the only chance of the half for Or Yehuda.

After the break the game slowed to a snail's pace with the points all but secured, yet there was still time for Tomi Kehana to mark his Inter Aliyah debut with one of the best goals of the day.

A last minute own goal ended the game to make it 8-1 to mark our 9th consecutive win and leaves us unbeaten in our last 12 games. We take on Maccabi Yehud away on Monday evening next.
