The Reds recorded their first victory in the top 16 of the Champions League after a dramatic finish in the hall in Holon • Despite the priority in the first half, Guy Goodes' team recorded its first loss of the season in Europe

A historic evening took place this evening (Wednesday) at the Toto Hall when Hapoel Holon hosted Hapoel Jerusalem for a match between two Israeli teams in a European setting, something that happened three times in history and for the first time in 12 years.

After 40 minutes, Hapoel Jerusalem came out with the dramatic victory 63:65 thanks to a dramatic basket by Carrington.

Appropriately for a meeting between the two biggest teams in Israeli basketball, which have a large fan base and a long-standing sporting rivalry, the stands of the Toto Hall burned and roared for a long hour before the start of the match, as fans painted the stands of the hall in yellow-purple and red and provided a wonderful setting and a warm atmosphere for the start of the match.

Something that slightly overshadowed the festive evening was the fact that the two teams tried to reach a ticket arrangement that would allow more away fans to attend the pair of games, when the minimum required by the factory is five percent, but the talks between the parties exploded due to differences of opinion and created a situation where the amount of the audience was limited.

In contrast to the atmosphere and the stormy weather of the beginning of February, on the floor we witnessed a hot and creative fight that gave a feel and atmosphere of a playoff, when both teams displayed toughness and fought for 40 minutes with the rate of accumulating points remaining low.

The hosts, led by Chris Johnson and Joe Ragland, had the upper hand in the first half, but the Reds stayed close thanks to good work from Kadin Carnigton and Levi Randolph.

The second half was tight throughout, the difference remained minimal and changed hands between the sides, but a great victory basket by Carrington, 8 seconds to the end decided the match in favor of the Reds.

In addition to the rivalry and the rivalry, the meeting was of decisive importance for the chances of qualifying for the next stage of the two teams because both came to the match after a loss in the first round to the French rivals who share the house with them and another loss means a drop to a negative 0:2 balance, which seriously harms the team's chances of qualifying at home with only six games .
