Holon keeps gathering momentum with win in Haifa

Hapoel Holon moved into the BSL’s top four with its fifth win from the past six games on Monday night, edging Maccabi Haifa 85-83 on the road thanks to Shlomi Harush’s buzzer-beater.

Holon improved to 11-7, tied with third-place Hapoel Tel Aviv, and made the most of defeats by Maccabi Rishon Lezion and Ironi Ness Ziona.

The encounter at Romema Arena was tight throughout the night and would ultimately only be decided in the final minute. A Moran Roth three-pointer with 20 seconds to play gave Haifa the edge (83-82), but Guni Izraeli tied the score from the freethrow line before Holon’s Jordan Taylor stole the ball and Harush won the game.
