Inter Aliyah 75-67 Elitzur Tel Aviv: Second Half of the Season Starts With a Win Over Local Rivals

Jan 30, 2022 | Holyland Hoops

After a three-week hiaitus from league matches, the Liga Bet season resumed for the second half, as Inter Aliyah tipped off against Elitzur Tel Aviv at home, having beaten them on the road in the opening game of the campaign.

The roster looked a lot different from that first meeting with a number of new faces joining the club since the beginning of the season and there was even a debutant, Amishav Weinstein, in action for this match.

Yet, despite the changed look the outcome was the same as Inter beat Elitzur to complete the double over them and move to an 7-4 record for the season good for 4th place.

After a slow start to the game and with Elitzur ahead in the first quarter a head injury to star forward Jake Pemberton, who later went to hospital to get stitches, didn’t help the cause.

However, an inspired second quarter put Inter in the lead as the substitutes proved their worth with the fresh legs making all the difference. 11 players played at least ten minutes in the win, with 14 getting time on the court, emphasizing what a team performance it was.

Sam Roche led the scoring with 19 points, while Barak Swarttz (now two points away from being the club’s leading points scorer) and Nyv Segev also hit double figures. There was a halftime buzzer beater from captain Daniel Roche, while Yona Kadosh made a clutch three on his first shot.

Inter hosts Or Yehuda on Wednesday looking for revenge for the defeat suffered at their hands in the first meeting.
