Hasharon led 46-32 at half- time, but Ariel Beit-Halachmi's team talk clearly did the trick, and his players came out fighting, outscoring their opponents 28-8 in the third stanza.

Beit-Halachmi was delighted to get one over the team he guided last season.

"In the first half we played very weakly, but in at half-time we discussed how we should improve and we did," he said.
