Inter Aliyah 58-60 Shaar HaNegev: State Cup Run Comes to an End in Final 8 in Road Trip Down South


Having made it to the final 8 of the State Cup Liga Bet in just our first season, we were narrowly beaten by Shaar HaNegev away from home with our heads held high.


We were again missing a number of big players in the roster for the road trip down south but that did not prevent AJ Mitnick's team from competing throughout, eventually losing in the dying seconds.

The controversial final call came in the dying seconds as Nyv Segev was defending the sideline, stepped on the line and they called a technical foul on him, which our opponents capitalised on and took the lead as the buzzer sounded.


Nyv led our scoring with 20 points, while Oren Ben-Birth also hit double figures with 11. There was a first full-team debut for Namer Medina, who contributed with 3 points of his own.

We now turn our attentions back to the league, where we take on leaders Maccabi Tel Aviv at home in two Wednesday's time.
