Ramla Wins At Buzzer, Will Face Ramat Hasharon
Lior Klinger ,03/03/2010
The women's Cup semi finals provided a huge drama in the 1st game as Ramla came back from a 17-point deficit to win 76-75 with a three at the buzzer.
Ramat Hasharon had much less trouble with Ramat Hen and easily advanced to the finals (on March 8).

Natanya 75 - Ramla 76
Natanya led 65-48 a minute into the 4th quarter but Ramla came storming back. Natanya panicked and watched the lead go down to 12 with 3 minutes to go. Natanya failed to score in the final 3 minutes, and left Ramla a chance to win. Lawson Wade had less than 10 seconds to go the lenght of the court and try to tie the game or win it with a three. She made the 3 and the fans rushed the court.
"I don't know I just threw it, it wasn't a normal shot, God was with us tonight" said Lawson Wade at the end. "I'm happy we fought back, it shows we have character. We were taking bad shots but once we started playing together we came back. That should be a lesson for us", she added.
