Hapoel Eilat starts their international journey winning
Hapoel Yossi Avrahami Eilat started their participation in Delasport Balkan League season 2020-2021 with a win tonight defeating Ironi Hai Motors Ness Ziona at home at the city of Eilat 93:90 (19-17; 24-25; 26-27; 24-21).
The whole game was running tied with ups and downs for both teams where each one had the chance to score the final shot.
This happened to be the 2nd loss in a row for Ironi Ness Ziona and unfortuantely for them a continuation of the black statistics they have been in against Hapoel Eilat for the past 2 years - Ironi Ness Ziona has not win Hapoel Eilat in the Israeli Winner League for 2 seasons. They were hoping their luck will come back with this game in Delasport Balkan League and they were quite close though.
Although Berry Davion (22 pts, 5 rebs), Kwan Cheatham (18pts, 3 rebs) and Patrick Miller (16 pts, 2 rebs, 5 ass) played an amazing game, it was not enough to go back home with the victory.
On top of Hapoel Eilat as MVP of the game was undoubtfully Ben Carter who finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists.
He was well-supported by teammates Casey Prather (21 pts, 5 rebs, 4 ass) and Josh Nebo (14 pts, 5 rebs).
