Adam Grossman scored a last-second strike that lifted Derech to a 2-1 victory over Belgium and set up a Jerusalem soccer league semifinal against Mekor Rishon, which saw off Big Apple Pizza 1-0. Renassaince ousted Ben Maimon 1-0 and will face bitter rival Club Med, which strolled 5-1 past The Bugs. In an intense matchup, Avi Grayeff was superb in Derech's goal, denying Belgium's early attacks, but a defensive blunder gifted Belgium a first-half own-goal. After the break, captain Lee Reisman led a Derech comeback and Benjy Sopell slotted home to even the score and send the match into extra time. With the quarterfinal seeming to head for a penalty shootout, Grossman unleashed a long-range drive into the top corner. A Judah Taub strike was the only goal for Mekor Rishon against Big Apple Pizza. Both teams were excellent and after Taub had broken the deadlock, Mekor's Michael Chalamish's superb defensive display helped Mekor advance one step closer to the championship. Renaissance's Moish Nussbaum scored the decisive goal against Ben Maimon.
