Due to the inclement weather, only one game took place last weekend, as the Mazkeret Batya RC Cola Silverbacks notched an important 28-7 victory over the host, Beersheva Travel Leaders Black Swarm in the Israel Football League.

The Silverbacks opened the scoring with a short touchdown pass from Ido Eisikovits to Rotem Oz.

The Swarm countered just before halftime: Dani Sterer found Ehud Klein for a 20-yard scoring strike and the ‘Backs went into the break leading 8-7.

The second half was all Mazkeret Batya, as two scoring runs by Oz and another by Eisikovits iced the game for the visitors.
