The Hapoel soccer championship games took place the weekend before last, and there were a number of very close games.

Starting with the Silver Spring league, in the sixth-ninth-grade division, Jesse Zweben's goal gave Orange a 1-0 overtime victory over Maroon. Noah Zweben got the assist.

Evan Goldmand and Daniel Zweben each posted a goal and an assist in the Orange's 2-0 victory over Teal in the fourth-fifth-grade title game.

Ron Heifetz scored twice, and Daryl Nadler added one more to give Maroon a 3-0 victory over Navy in the second-third-grade championship.

The kindergarten-first-grade division game saw another shutout as Gold scored a 5-0 victory over Teal. Benjamin Zatman led with two goals and one assist while Zachary Winters, Yoni Eisen and Noam Roth each scored once.

Ezra Diament and Michael Minsk both got assists.

Over the on the girls' side, Emma Hofman's overtime goal gave Gold a 1-0 victory over Navy in the sixth-eighth-grade league's finale.

Abigail Salamon got the only goal in Gold's 1-0 shutout of Navy in the third-fifth-grade division championship.

The kindergarten-second-grade division saw Navy rout Gold, 6-0. Ella Gantman topped the winners with four goals and an assist. Orly Strauss added the final two goals.

The Rockville league saw some more offense from the winners and the losers.

The grand finals of the third-fifth-grade division saw Orange/Navy pull out a 4-2 victory over Aqua/Gold. Reuben Winston (two goals) led the winners while Alex Arking added a goal and an assist. Milo Satinsky (one goal) and Gabe Krantz (one assist) also helped.

For the girls, the third-sixth-grade group saw Aqua/Navy edge Gold/Orange, 2-1, in the finals. Ashira Rosen and Daniella Kaufmann both scored once. Ellie Samuels got the Gold goal.

Estie Cohen took care of business in the kindergarten-second-grade title game. She scored all of the Gold/Orange goals in a 7-6 overtime victory versus Navy/Aqua. Raya Seid had the only assist.

Maayan Naveh and Leah Winkler both had hat tricks in defeat. Winkler also added an assist, as did Sara Sporkin and Orli Abrams.

All-Mensch Game

And for the adults, the All-Mensch Game was played last weekend on an ugly day filled with rain and cold. Still, the Silver Spring team had enough to edge Potomac, 6-5. Binyamin Edelstein led the winners with three goals. Jason Kardon scored another goal in the victory.

Yaakov Fink paced Potomac with two goals. Noah Zweben, Moshe Kwait and coach Mark Zweben each scored a goal.
