Maccabi Tel Aviv hits ground running in pre-season Winner Cup quarterfinals

Maccabi Tel Aviv fans were left with a taste for more after the yellow-and-blue trounced Ironi Ness Ziona 84-54 in the pre-season Winner Cup quarterfinals in the new arena in Holon on Thursday.

After being knocked out in the BSL semifinals for the first time since 1993 last season and ending the campaign with just one title, Maccabi is desperate not to let any local trophy slip its grasp in the coming year, even if it is only a pre-season tournament.

A 20-0 run at the end of the first period and the start of the second opened a 24-point gap (34-10) on Thursday and all but wrapped up Maccabi’s win, with the yellow-and-blue cruising the rest of the way.
