Some sloppy defense kept the game close, but failing to score with two bases loaded twice, early in the game, took the wind out of Ginot Shomron sails.

Nossie Jacobovitch led the way offensively for the Warriors, going 3-for-3 with a homer and five RBI’s. Chaim Schon led off the fourth with homer, his third game in a row with a long ball and his sixth homer in the last five games.

Yanky Itzkowitz went 3-for- 3, scoring four times and Simon Pack also collected three hits for the Warriors.

With the victory, the 2009 champions secured their second consecutive double-digit winning season with two games still remaining on the schedule.
