Inter Aliyah 56-71 Be'er Yaakov: Second Straight Defeat Puts Early Dent in Promotion Hopes

Last week we were defeated by Yehud, one of the league's more competitive sides and things didn't get any easier for us as we faced Be'er Yaakov at home this week, a team that finished joint 2nd in Liga Aleph Mercaz last season.

AJ Mitnick made a few changes to the starting lineup, with Barak Swarrtz, Yarden Khousky and Guy Schindler opening for us as we attempted to get back to winning ways.

However, Be'er Yaakov were ruthless in their offence, while we stuttered in the first quarter, allowing our opponents to run into a double digit lead before the first quarter was even over.

For the rest of the game we were playing catch up and even though we started the second half brightly and cut the lead down to 5 points at one moment, Be'er Yaakov never really looked in danger of relinquishing the lead.

Yaniv Green was out top scorer on the night with 16 points, closely following by Sam Roche on 15, while Barak Swarrtz also hit double digits with 10 points.

Next week we travel to Lod to face Elitzur who are one place below us in the table.
