Football History was made in the IFL with the Tel Aviv Sabres having their first ever win. The 28-21 victory came at the expense of the Haifa Underdogs, which ironically was their first ever loss. After a scoreless first quarter, the Sabres scored two touchdowns only for the Underdogs to respond shortly after with one of their own. This left the scores level 14-14 at the half. The third quarter was also scoreless. After the Sabres scored to go ahead 21-14, Sabres quarterback Adi Hakami took the ball from his own 2 yard line and burst clear to make it 28-14. Haifa reduced the gap with a touchdown of their own and had the chance to take the game to overtime but with 22 seconds left, Haifa quarterback Tal Avivi was intercepted to seal the memorable win for the Sabres.
