Ramle pulled off a surprise 35-run win over Lions Lod, although the result should have little impact on the league title. A half century from opener Asher Penkar, and middle-order contributions from Isaac Talkar (22) and Shimon Penkar (24) gave Ramle a first innings score of 158 after they had won the toss. Janet DeSilva was the best of the Lions bowlers, taking four for 12 in his eight overs. Isaac Massil took two for 14. Lions Lod lost wickets on a regular basis, and although David Massil (36) played well down the order, his effort was too little too late. Most of the damage had already been done by Samuel Borgawker (4 for 27), as Lions limped to 123 all out. In Division 2, Beersheba A defeated Dimona C by 3 wickets, Eilat beat Ra'anana 2, and in Division 3 Negev Academy defeated Rishon Lezion 3.
