Ironi Kiryat Shmona 3 - 1 Hapoel Ramat Gan

Kiryat Shmona finally found some offense and were rewarded with a crucial win going into the final four games of the season. It was the first time in almost am month that the defending champions scored more than once.

Salah Hasarma got the champions off and running in the 11th minute with an important strike, however, a lapse in defense allowed Ramat Gan to tie the match through a David Manga goal.

The Blue Lions would respond immediately through former Levski Sofia midfielder Darko Tasevski, who notched his second goal of the season.

In the second half, Kiryat Shmona's defense put the clamps down on 12th place Ramat Gan and ensured a victory. Sintiahau Salalik added another Kiryat goal in the 67th minute and put the match out of reach.

Kiryat Shmona next face a tough road test when they visit third place Hapoel Tel Aviv, only separated by three points with four matches left before the playoffs.
