Thank you Nachum,
Championship season has finally come folks as the Yeshiva League has bestowed Crown Trophy of Brooklyn’s finest handiwork to 6 of its 11 active leagues. Varsity and JV Hockey, Girls Varsity basketball and all three volleyball leagues have wrapped up their seasons with a few more basketball finales coming up this week. Also, the 25th Annual Red Saracheck Tournament this past week. All that and more on your Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, I’m Elliot Weiselberg.
The JV and Varsity Hockey Championships were played this past Sunday in two East vs. West affairs. We’ll lead off with the more exciting game and that one that will put the “Mishenichnas Adar” in Nachum’s step, the Varsity championship, where, the two top teams in the league, Western Division champion, undefeated, TABC took on Eastern Champion HAFTR. Tied midway through the third period, the hero of the regular season overtime game between these two stepped up and became the hero once again. Yair Knoller putting home a pass from Daniel Levy with around three minutes to go, sealing the deal and the 3-2 TABC victory. Congratulations to Head Coach Mo Fuchs and the entire TABC mishpacha.
The JV game saw Division champions DRS and Frisch do battle. Tied 1-1 midway through the 3rd, Jake Weinstock powered home two goals to give the Wildcats the victory and the school’s first JV Championship in 10 years, since the 2005-2006 season. Congratulations to Head Coach Larry Gross and the entire DRS family.
Also taking championships on the week, SAR defeated Frisch for the Girls Varsity A Basketball Championship and the Girls A, B and JV volleyball championships went to Ramaz, Shulamith and Frisch respectively.
JV and Varsity Basketball will both have their championship games at YU this coming Sunday and both games will seem eerily familiar.
In JV, we will have a rematch of last year’s final as SAR and Frisch advance to face off once again. SAR, the West #2 seed, upset DRS in DRS 42-34 behind Judah Oppenheimer’s four 3-pointers while Frisch, the West champions shook off a slow start to upend Magen David 59-34. The two met last year, with Frisch taking home the champion
