Without a doubt the biggest game of our season so far, we took on league leaders Ordea Ramat Gan at home in the penultimate fixture of the year, having lost to them earlier on in the season.
We knew that a defeat would hand Ramat Gan the Liga Bet title and secure their promotion to Liga Alef so there was hardly a lack of motivation ahead of the game. We entered the game with a 8-0 record since the mid-season break and were keen to take revenge on our defeat at their hands back in December.
The first two quarters were cagey as both teams tried to figure each other out and after a few lead changes, we went into the half-time break with a slender lead of just 2 points.
The third quarter followed suit and as the game entered the final quarter we were ahead by 5 points. Yet, a monster final quarter, arguably our finest of the entire season, saw us annihilate the league leaders and end the game with a monstrous double-digit victory.
The deadly trio of Sam Roche (26 points), Jake Pemberton (24) and Ryan Clamage (20) caused the most damage to the Ramat Gan defence, while Yona Kadosh, Nadav Kristal-Tenenbaum and OBB also got on the scoresheet.
The win moved us to a 15-4 record ahead of next week's final game of the season. Defeat for Ramat Gan, coupled with a win for us over Hapoel Givatayim will put us in 1st position and promotion to Liga Alef...
