Alexander Dzikich: "If we play like that in the final, we won't be able to win" | Israel Today


The coach of Hapoel Jerusalem was not satisfied with the way his trainees looked in the semi-finals of the State Cup against Hapoel Haifa • Drucker: "We showed them they have a budget and money, but we have spirit"

Hapoel Jerusalem this evening (Monday) beat Hapoel Haifa 73:77 at Hafis Arena and advanced to the final of the State Cup, where Tel Aviv awaits.

The coach of Hapoel Jerusalem, Alexander Dzikic, summed up the game: "First of all I want to congratulate Hapoel Haifa, they played great.

I said all along that they are a great team and they deserved to win here.

In such games it is forbidden to allow the opponent to score 26 points in a quarter.

I didn't like our energies and our performance in defense.

If we play like that in the final, we won't be able to win.'

Hapoel Haifa's coach, Sharon Drucker, summed up the game from his side: "I need to digest this game.

From the beginning they controlled the pace and we did the things we wanted on both sides of the field.

I told the actors that I was proud of their performance, we showed that they have a budget and money, but we have spirit.'

Drucker also added: "Unfortunately, it was not enough to advance to the finals."

I have been a coach for many years and I have never referred to judging, not this time either, it is already history.

This is a difficult moment for me, I respect the judges and even at a moment like this I will not give my opinion.

They are not to blame for the game.'

were we wrong

We will fix it!
