Kappa's March Madness Volume #7

OOOO BABY

that time of the year has finally jolted upon us.

I was literally waiting the hours and seconds til we started March 1st. March Madness is in baby! I was hold my breath, reducing my anger on the groundhog for making spring late and focusing on the best League ever...the Israeli Leumit League which shows a real fight for promotion that other Leagues just dont do...

So while we enjoy the mood swing, lets cut the ribbon and start the March Madness...Volume 7! 7 Years of crazy madness years from yours truly, Kappa21

Without further due, I have put in all the teams that are eligible to be part of the March Madness..

In the previous post, i put a chart which stated all the teams that have a chance to make the playoffs. Realistically, the first 6 teams have a strong chance while the wild card or the ones who have a 0 to slim chance (other than hell freezing over sorta scenario) are in the red below.....

As interesting as it may sound, anything can happen.
Currently, League leaders, Ironi Kiryat Shmona is leading the way...having a strong 49 Points ahead of second which is at 41.

As of March 1, there is 6 rounds left. Round 30, which is the last round is slated to take place in April 9th. After that, we'll see who makes it and who doesnt. I.K Shmona are heavy favourites this year to make promotion as they hope to bring back soccer to the north

Hapoel Kfar Saba, a usual face to the top league is also vying for a spot back in the League....they are currently second..

Although it doesn't mean that any of the contenders dont have a shot...... Ramat Hasharon has proved to be a hard team to play this season and have done well and could suprise us...12 points are on the line..... Same goes to Ironi Bat Yam who have been up in the league this season and faltered back down. Both are tied for 3rd and a simple win for both or one of them and a loss for Kfar Saba would mean a new 2nd spot for someone.

Ahava Arraba, which is an arab side close to shaknin surprised us all when they were in 1st for in the start of the season. Overall, they went down and had a lousy few games, but now are back at it and keep being a threat to the other teams.

Hapoel Nazerit Illit and Nes Ziona both know what is at stake and are making every effort to win all the remaining games to and knock into 2nd with 47 points hopefully... a huge miracle is needed indeed...

Good to have another volume of the Liga Leumit March Madness.

It is always an interesting competition. Guess Kiriat Shmona is on the right path to return to Ligat Ha´Al.

Kiryat Shmona is certainly bound for Liga Ha'al, though the fun is in 2nd..who will get it?

Anyone from 2nd to 7th is up for it!
And as you stated..playoff round is after...how does that work exactly?

Well, I think that who ever gets promoted will probably be a lot better than the two relegated teams, and will improve the level of the league, also I want Kiryat Shomna and Rishon LeZion to promote.

Rishon Le Zion is out of the race technically. THey do have a chance however..slim one..but focus on the first 7 teams.. they are the ones who actually would be the movers and shakers. I think the fight for promotion lies in 2nd place as there is 18 points and only 3 points (a win this round?) seperating them

Games this week - Round 25:

Maccabi Be'er Sheva vs. Sektzia Nes Tziona
- Should be a good game for Sektzia. Beer Sheva have lost 3 in a row....so they may have a chance to try to get more points in their tight race.... a win, where all else is equal would boost them 38 points to 4th place!!!

Hapoel Marmorek vs .Beitar Shimshon Tel Aviv
The worst of the worst vs. mediocare...not much to worry about here

Ironi Kiryat Shmona vs. Ahva Arraba
Interesting game. Ahva Arraba still in the loop, however they are playing a strong Kiryat Shoma team. I think it will mean alot not only for Ahva but also for the race for 2nd. It will seem to me that Arraba might lose and as a result there will be shifting of teams in the league.

Ironi Ramat HaSharon vs. Ironi Rishon LeZion


Should be a tight game. Ramat Hasharon are 3rd, but Rishon Le Zion is gradually improving. Still in the race for promotion, they may try to tie or even win the game prompting Ramat Hasharon to lose their spot of 3rd and fall down when all else is being equal.

Hakoah Ramat Gan vs. Ironi Bat Yam
Hakoach Ramat Gan is currently 3rd from last. Bat Yam is still in the race. However, H. Ramat Gan is like Ashdod...kings of ties. They may as well tie this unless Bat Yam pulls of a stellar game. Bat Yam havent won in 3 matches...

Hapoel Jerusalem vs. Maccabi Herzliya

-Nothing to report here. Hapoel Jerusalem is in relegation zone and Maccabi Herzelia is a failure this season

Hapoel Kfar Saba vs. Hapoel Nazareth Illit

Hapoel is having their hands full with Kfar Saba. Although improved and are in 6th place..they hardly have anything going for them and Kfar Saba may dominate in the end of it all.....

Hapoel Ashkelon vs. Hapoel Bnei Lod
- Not much again. Both teams are in the middle/bottom table....

End Result for Round 25:

Maccabi Be'er Sheva 0 - 1 Sektzia Nes Tziona
Small but very convincing tie for Nes Tziona which pin points them with Ramat Hasharon and Bat Yam for 3rd place with 38 points.

Hapoel Marmorek 0 - 1 Beitar Shimshon Tel Aviv
Nothing really to say hear. Marmorek is not Liga Leumit worthy and Beitar Shimshon just took advantage to get out of the Relegation fight. They are currently in 7th.

Ironi Kiryat Shmona 1 - 0 Ahva Arraba
Very eventful match. Once again, nothing to highlight here... Ironi was the better team playing at home and Arraba succombed to a goal early on and that was the end of it. Very defensive game if you ask me...

Ironi Ramat HaSharon 0 - 1 Ironi Rishon LeZion
Very critical match for Ramat Hasharon. Ironi Rishon Le Zion still has a chance to get into 2nd without a doubt. They have 36 points and are on the verge of making it. The loss for Ramat Hasharon puts them at a tie with Bat Yam and Nes Ztiona.

Hakoah Ramat Gan 2 - 1 Ironi Bat Yam
Another big disappointment. Lower Tier Hakoach Ramat Gan who are close to relegation beat Ironi Bat Yam in a very important match. Bat Yam, whom if they won, could have been the clear leader with 41 points for number 3rd spot, only 3 points shy of Kfar Saba. People want soccer in BAT YAM!!!!!! :fero:

Hapoel Jerusalem 1 - 2 Maccabi Herzliya
Predicted. Maccabi Herzelia is the better team in this match. Jerusalem...like i said..aint going nowhere.... except to Liga Alef (YA CHATICHOT BEN ALEF!!!!)

Hapoel Kfar Saba 2 - 1 Hapoel Nazareth Illit


Monday game. Was entertaining. Kfar Saba was gonna succumb to Nazareth Illit when they scored in the nick of time and won 2-1. Now Kfar Saba has 44 points. 6 points clear from 3rd and can really secure 2nd place.

Hapoel Ashkelon 1 - 1 Hapoel Bnei Lod
Dull game!

Two teams promote automatically. The third place will play a playoff match against the 14th place of Ligat Ha´Al

So once sec...is that the playoffs? 3rd Place plays the 14th spot from the top league?

Say it was Hapoel Acre......?

What about the playoffs in Liga ha'al? How does that work out?
