Soccer: Beitar stuns Kiryat Shmona 3-1 at Teddy

February 2, 2015 00:11

Ironi Kiryat Shmona’s Premier League title hopes suffered another blow on Sunday night, following a 3-1 defeat to Beitar Jerusalem at Teddy Stadium.

Guy Levy got his tenure as Beitar coach off to a dream start thanks to two Shir Tzedek own-goals and Kiryat Shmona could find itself four points behind league-leader Maccabi Tel Aviv, should the two-time defending champion beat Hapoel Tel Aviv in the derby on Monday.

Kiryat Shmona midfielder Adrian Rochet (27) quickly canceled out Tzedek’s (23) first own-goal, but Tzedek found the back of his goalkeeper’s net yet again in the 76th minute and Ofir Kriaf clinched Beitar’s win in stoppage time.

Kiryat Shmona had spent more than three consecutive months in first place, but has picked up just four of a possible 12 points from its past four matches.
