Maccabi Tel Aviv are Girls Futsal Champions

19 November 2015
Maccabi WP recently launched a Girls Futsal League which ran for four weeks with matches held every Sunday at Herzlia High School. The Maccabi Haifa and Tel Aviv teams were joined by players from Brooklyn Sports and Development and Aspire Soccer Academy.

The tournament was a fantastic contest between the four teams and we are very proud of the girls who demonstrated great skills, teamwork, fair play and commitment.

The semi-finals and final were held on Sunday 8 November, and Maccabi Tel Aviv emerged victorious with a 4-0 win over Aspire Soccer Academy in the final. The tournament’s Top Goalscorer Award was shared between Jade Spiro and Eve Pywell from Maccabi Tel Aviv, with eight goals each, and the MVP was awarded to Sarah Katz (Maccabi Haifa).

The League, for girls aged 12-15 years, will be expanded to include Jo’burg teams, thus providing the platform for trials and selection for the 2017 Maccabiah.

A big thank you to the teams from Aspire Soccer Academy and Brooklyn Sport and Development for participating and for their efforts in making this event such a success.

Very well done to our Maccabi SA Futsal Convenor Ronen Cohen, the WP team and dedicated parents including Heidi Bieber and Kim Katz, who delivered another very successful youth tournament.
