“We’re taking it one game at a time” Douglas and Eilat sink Rishon Le’Zion 84-77 in relegation battle

Mar 27, 2022 | Holyland Hoops

Hapoel Eilat sunk Maccabi Rishon Le’Zion 84-77 as the Red Sea City squad picked up a much needed win to move further away from the relegation zone while the wine city side moved precariously closer to playing in the second division next season. Bryon Allen and Toney Douglas gave Ariel Beit Halachmi’s squad a quick lead but Archie Goodwin caught fire and led Dror Cohen’s team on a 12-0 run to end the first half in the lead 40-35. However, the advantage was short-lived as Tzuf Ben Moshe and Noam Avivi caught fire while Douglas put the finishing touches on the victory. Douglas led Eilat with 25 points, Allen added 22 points and Ben Moshe chipped in with 13 points in the win. Archie Goodwin led all scores with 28 points and Netanel Artzi scored 12 points in the loss.

“The game was a must win and we played 40 minutes together as a team on both ends of the floor,” Douglas told The Sports Rabbi. “We faced some adversity the past 3 games with our losses, but we stayed together every week and we are still getting better individually and as a team. We are just taking it one game at a time.”
