History: Ashdod Wins Championship
We couldn't ask for a more fitting finale to such an amazing finals series. Tied at 33 at the break, tied at 58 at the end of regulation, nerve wrecking overtime decided by one offensive rebound by Kolodny who then made two huge free throws to make it 70 – 66 with 4.9 secs left, and set off the yellow celebrations.
Ashdod Spoil Ramla’s Party
The women’s playoffs finals is going the distance for the first time in 5 years, thanks to Ashdod’s huge win in Ramla. Ashdod came back from a 14 point deficit and managed to surpass 60 points for the first time in the series in route to a 67-57 victory. Plenette Pierson, who received the season MVP trophy at the half, carried her team with an impressive performance including 12 points in the 4th quarter to ruin Ramla’s planned celebration.
Ramla's Defense Too Much in Game 3
After game 1, Adan Inbar said he hoped Ramla would be the one to score one more basket. Tonight in game 3 in Ashdod he got his wish, though in this series it makes more sense to ask for one more stop. In another defensive battle Ramla was better through out, led by 10 with 3 minutes to play only to watch Ashdod cut it to 1 but the champs held on, 60 – 58.
No Drama: Ramla Takes Game 2
Tamera Young was named MVP of game 1, but tonight she'll probably have trouble sleeping. Ramla in a game they had to win got Alena Beard in her best game of the season and enjoyed another day at the office from Tanisha Wright to get a convincing 68-60 win.

At the buzzer: Ramla returns to the Finals
In an awesome playoff thriller, Ramla & Ramat Hasharon exchanged blows for 40 minutes and Ramat Hasharon was 6 seconds away from a 5th and deciding game.
