The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated Elitzur Netanya (1-1) on the court of seventh ranked Hap.Petah Tikva on Monday night. Visitors were defeated by Hap.Petah Tikva 83-75. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The hosts trailed by 11 points at the halftime before their 50-31 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Hap.Petah Tikva looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Rebekah Gardner (185-90, college: UCLA) who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists and Jamaican power forward Vanessa Gidden (193-85, college: Hofstra, agency: Ronsport) who added 16 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest.
