A 20-4 run to end the game secured Maccabi Haifa a 93-83 win over Hapoel Tel Aviv in BSL action at Arik Einstein Arena on Monday night.

After a tight first half ended in a 46-42 Hapoel lead, the hosts held a slender gap for much of the second half and seemed to be well placed when debutant Dijon Thompson gave them a six-point lead (79-73) midway through the fourth quarter.

However, Hapoel lost its way after that, with Rene Rougeau and Dagan Yavzuri inspiring Haifa’s run to clinch the win.

Rougeau ended the night with 20 points and seven rebounds, while Ike Ofoegbu had 20 points and Yavzuri added 18 points for Haifa, which improved to 10-13.

Durand Scott scored 23 points for Hapoel, which fell to 12-11, losing for the fourth time in its past five games.
