The third game of the series was played on Monday as the venue shifted back to regular season leaders Maccabi Ramat Hen. It was a close game throughout with Maccabi Ashdod leading for most of the second half. They had a three point lead with less than seven seconds left, but managed to lose in regulation 62-61. Kayla Thornton managed to complete a three point play after getting passed the ball from the offensive rebound of a missed free throw. As has been the case all season, the hosts have had their domestic players complement a trio of foreign players that has played well together. They now have the chance to win the title in the next game on Thursday, but face a tough trip to their opponent’s home court.
