U.K.I edged past the Giblets on penalties while SA Seniors comfortably defeated Club Med 3-0 at the weekend to set up an exciting Moshiko Soccer Final. The Seniors earned their name playing for a ninth succesive year searching for their first trophy in the league having lost four finals on the way, while U.K.I still have last seasons final defeat to Cafe Rimon on penalties fresh in their mind. In a highly entertaining encounter, the prolific Yanki Baddiel put U.K.I ahead with a powerful finish only for man of the match Avinoam Cohen to level the proceedings. U.K.I's Yoni Schurder had a superb game in defense and ensured the impressive Ronny Perel and top scorer Micha Rechdiener were held at bay. With no more goals after extra time the crowd were treated to a tense penalty shootout. Being on level terms after the entire teams had taken their kicks, U.K.I keeper Uriel Roodyn stepped up smashing home the winning spotkick. SA Seniors took a step closer to their dream of being crowned Moshiko Champions with a solid display against Club Med. Leib Ziskin converted a trademark penalty while Moshe Nussbaum took advantage of a defensive blunder to double the lead. With the suspended Josh Zneimer screaming from the sideline Club Med searched a way back into the game but Aaron Goldstuck put the game out of reach with a sensational solo effort.
