Eilat stuns Mac TA to extend semis series

Maccabi Tel Aviv will have to wait at least until Sunday night to secure its progress to the BSL final after suffering a surprise 104-98 overtime defeat to Hapoel Eilat at Yad Eliyahu Arena on Wednesday night, cutting the yellowand- blue’s lead in the best-of-five series to 2-1.

After dominating Game 2 in Eilat, Maccabi seemed to be cruising to its 21st straight league final when it led by double digits in the third quarter. However, Eilat erased the entire deficit at the start of the fourth frame and was the more composed team in the extra period.

Eilat hosts Game 4 on Sunday, with a decisive Game 5 to take place at Yad Eliyahu next Wednesday, if necessary.
