Inter left the Holon Stadium frustrated with just a point after a 1-1 draw with Lazarus Holon, but then again the all-immigrant team did not deserve much more in what was a scrappy game.

Heading into the match just a few points from the summit, Inter dominated most of the first period and went ahead halfway through the half with Fernando Zatz and Pikado Golantau combining to feed Vlad Kart, who made no mistake past the goalkeeper.

After the break, the home side came into the game more and drew level thanks to an unstoppable 40-yeard strike. Chances came in abundance for the visitors to regain the lead, but the likes of Azanao Aristo, debutant Oded Pozis and Yoni Golfor could not add a second

After the final whistle, the referee sent off a number of players from both teams, as he completely lost control of the proceedings.

In International Football League of Israel action, Inter B returned to its usual winning ways last Saturday, with an impressive display over Aviv City to win 4-1.

Matt Keston’s side ran into a two-goal lead as the first half reached its conclusion, with Sebastian Israel converting a delightful free kick before Nicolas Straub connected to an Ehud Eblagon cross. However, the scoreline was halved with the half’s last kick of the game, with Aviv City converting a penalty.

With the scores delicately balanced, the second half could have gone in any direction but Inter continued to play good football and the two-goal cushion was restored by Max Rosenthal after he stole the ball from an opponent. Inter managed to add a fourth late on, Tal Zraya drilled home a Ran Sarusi pass to out the cherry on a comfortable win.
