A stain in history: the numbers behind the humiliation of Hapoel Jerusalem - voila! sport


Highlights: Hapoel Afula defeated Hapoel Jerusalem 105:65 in the Israeli Premier League. The Reds conceded 64 points in the first half, the most in 16 years. It is the 23rd time that Jerusalem has been defeated by at least 40 points. The defeat is the club's 25th of the season, a record that will take time to remove. The club failed to recruit the coach and none of the foreigners to perform in Israel. It also lost 23 assists, a season high for the club.

The Black and Reds were defeated by 40 points (the most since 2011) and conceded 64 points at halftime (the most since 2007). Hapoel Afula almost shattered a record set in the days of Erez Edelstein, the actor

Everything that happened Thursday night on the floor in the valley should be taken with a grain of salt, for the simple reason - the team that was humiliated 105:65 by Hapoel Afula is not the real Hapoel Jerusalem. However, it is hard to ignore the numbers that entered the history books and were filed among several ancient records, and perhaps it is the patchwork they put up in the capital that illustrates the stain that stuck with the club this week on its conduct, when it failed to recruit the coach and none of the foreigners to perform in Israel.

  • Hapoel Afula recorded the second biggest victory in its history in the Premier League. The ancient record was set 42 years ago, when it defeated Elitzur Tel Aviv by 44 points (68:112). Chet Nelson scored 27 points, the legendary Boaz Yanai added 14 and Erez Edelstein had six more points.
  • This is the 23rd time that Hapoel Jerusalem has been defeated by at least 40 points in the top division. It had been a long time since such a thing had happened to her; In the 2010/11 season, she surrendered 107:66 to Maccabi Tel Aviv and a triple-double by Doron Perkins (10 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists).

  • The Jerusalemites scored 64 points in the first half, the most in 16 years. In 2007, they went into the break 71:42 behind in Malha against Elitzur Ashkelon, en route to a 111:89 defeat (Marcus Hatten 37 points).
  • Afula took the lead for 37 minutes and 23 seconds during the evening. She was not in a losing position for a single moment; Jerusalem did not lead for a single second.
  • 23 assists is nice and nice, and serves as a season high for Afula, but she has had better games in the past. Her record stands at 28, and even against Jerusalem she had 27 in 2007. Goni Yizraeli was responsible for 9 of them, Avi Sugar for 7 and Tanji Awjobi for 6 from the center position.
  • And only Jerusalem zero two? This well-worn title is taken from the distant past, but it's not an unprecedented balance. The Reds also started last season with two league defeats, after which they flew to six consecutive victories. This time, it seems, it will be harder. This stain will take time to remove.
  • Here's some consolation for Reds fans: 25 losses is not a negative record for their team. She has already had three cases where she lost 28, 26 and 26 bullets. In the state of the club at the moment, that's something too.
