The National League, like the National League, closed on Friday with eight games that decided the fiery bottom battles. Kafr Qasim survived in the league, and my brother Nazareth was relegated to Artzit. Moti Ivanir's Nof HaGalil will compete in tests against Kfar Shalem.
M.S. Kafr Qasim - Achi Nazareth 1:1
M.S. Kafr Qasim finished 1:1 against Maccabi Ahi Nazareth, which was enough for them to survive in the league, and relegated the guest to Liga A.
A draw was enough for both teams to at least guarantee a trial, but Anas Dabur (60) scored on a penalty to lift the brothers of Nazareth to 12th place. Kafr Qasim continued to press and in the 74th minute it paid off when left-handed Doogoy got the priceless goal, which lifted it over the red line and relegated Achi Nazareth to Liga Alef after 13 years.

Hapoel Nof HaGalil - Hapoel Afula 0:3
Hapoel Nof Hagalil defeated Hapoel Afula 0-3 and will compete in tests to stay against Hapoel Kfar Shalem.
It started well for Moti Ivanir's team with Eitan Wolblum slamming into the visitors' net in the 41st minute. In the 71st minute, Kainde doubled by squeezing a penalty and scoring the second from the white spot, and 3 minutes later it was Reinstein who scored the third.
Moti Ivanir and Nof HaGalil in tests against Kfar Shalem will try to secure another season in Israel's second division.
