Cinderella on the way? 1:1 between Hapoel Petah Tikva and MS Ashdod in the quarterfinals of the State Cup | Israel Hayom


Ofer Tselappa's team impressed against the team from the Premier League in the first game • Hamudi Kanaan scored first on a penalty, Dror Nir Izan even before halftime • Rematch: on 28.2 at the Yaya Stadium

The rain, the cold and the storm on the way did not stop the thousands of Hapoel Pat and MS Ashdod fans from coming to the Shlomo Insurance Stadium this evening (Tuesday) and watching their teams draw 1:1 in the first game of the quarter-finals of the State Cup. 

The blue crowd came in large numbers and did not stop encouraging the team's players, even though they fell behind in the fourth minute after Hamodi Kanaan scored the first goal of the guest with a penalty.

Surprisingly, Ofer Tselappa's men continued their good form from the National League and looked much better than their opponents from the top league.

And there was also a game.

Dror Nir balanced the result in the 43rd minute after she lifted a ball into the area that passed all the players and misled the goalkeeper Yoav Hasson, and the hopes for Cinderella in the semi-finals returned. 

Even in the second half the good pace continued, both teams were looking for another goal that would give them an advance for the rematch that will be held on 28.2 in Ashdod, but without success.

In the end 1:1, which can give the group from the mother of the colonies many reasons for optimism and little food for thought on the side of Ran Ben Shimon and Ashdod.
