Coach takes heat for leaving captain off squad. Elsewhere, Hapoel Haifa records first win; Bnei Sakhnin and Beitar Jerusalem draw.
Maccabi Haifa failed to notch up its second win of the campaign yesterday, tying Ramat Hasharon 1-1 and continuing its worst start of the season since Yaakov Shachar bought the club in 1992. On the other side of town, Ashdod SC fell 2-1 to Hapoel Haifa, which was grateful to grab its first victory of the season.
