Goals were harder to come by in the second week of the Hapoel soccer season.

On the boys side, there were shutouts in both games of the kindergarten-first- grade division. Benjamin Winters got the game-winning goal with help from Eitan Starr as Green edged Gold, 1-0.

The other game in that division saw Blue blank Maroon, 3-0. Menachem Abrams scored two goals, and Asher Falk got the other. Simon Goldberg and Zvi Kristt each added an assist.

There were three shutouts in the second-third grade division as Orange, Black and Gold each posted victories.

Noam Roth's goal gave Orange a 1-0 victory over Blue. Ben Zatman got the only assist.

Gavriel Bernstein led the way with two goals and one assist. Jayden Matusow scored the other goal. Moshe Gottlieb added an assist.

Goals were even tougher to find in the fourth-fifth grade division -- as just one was scored in the three games played.
