Another exciting week of Kraft Family IFL football is in the books, with the Haifa Underdogs coming out as the big winners with their second overtime victory of the young season, a 21-20 triumph over the visiting Tel Aviv Pioneers.

The Ramat HaSharon Hammers overcame a slow start to beat the Petah Tikva Troopers 36-8, while the Judean Rebels cruised to a 66-0 victory over the Mazkeret Batya Silverbacks.

The Troopers have an important bottom-of-the-table game in Beersheva this Saturday night and the Hammers get two weeks off before hosting the Underdogs.

The Silverbacks play this Thursday away at the Jerusalem Lions, and the Rebels have a week off before another Saturday night away game, this one in Beersheva.
