Saturday's match for Inter Blue in the IFLI2 was one to forget, although the game will go down in the history books as one of the biggest defeats in our history.

Despite winning the INTERCLASICO last week, Inter Blue were a shadow of themselves and this was the most disappointing performance of the season to date, with the game all but over inside the opening 20 minutes.

Sam Sank took charge of the Blues with Head Coach Zequi Lubocki out of the country and the formation change to 4-4-2 proved a mistake almost immediately as South Tel Aviv ran ragged.

Our opponents, who sat just one place ahead of us in 3rd before the start of the game, were 4-0 up after just 20 minutes, as we defended shambolically, failing to deal with the South Tel Aviv attacks.

Our best chance of the half fell to Ran Sarusi, whose header from a corner was cleared off the line, leading to an immediate counter-attack, where we conceded yet another goal.

Five goals down a half time, there was just pride left at stake for the second half and although the scoreline didn't get much better, there was a period of play where we finally showed why we were in 4th place before the start of the game.

As we threatened the goal on numerous occasions our attacks were met with fouls from South Tel Aviv, giving us three free kicks just outside the area. Mati Yelen scored one to perfection, before having a second one saved, while Tom Printac saw his effort hit the post.

The scoreline will leave a bitter taste in the mouth of the Inter Blue players, ahead of a week break from league fixtures.
