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...
