After two consecutive losses, Hapoel Holon returned to the winning track this evening (Saturday) after leaving Remez Hall with an away victory 85:97 over Kiryat Ata City, thanks to the offensive explosion of Eric Green, Chris Johnson and Joe Ragnald who combined for 68 points.
The champions, who have not yet secured their place in the cup due to the painful loss to Upper Galilee in the last round, came to the game sharp and focused right from the start, showed good defense and stopped the newcomer to only 8 points in the first quarter en route to a promising double-digit lead, but the host responded with a dominant second quarter. of 14:29 and took the lead.
Sharon Abrahami's modest team continued to make it difficult for the champion in the second half as well, but in the fourth quarter the differences in talent and qualities had an effect and gave the Purples the away victory.
Guy Goodes received tepid debut minutes in the league from new acquisition Javin DeLaurier, who contributed 4 points, but 22 points from Chris Johnson, 21 from Eric Green and 25 from Ragland decided the matchup.
In the next round, the Purples went to an away game in Rome against Hapoel Haifa, while the Northerns will be hosted by Hapoel Tel Aviv.
