Tune in for the latest Yeshiva League Spring Sports information, as well as, the occasional update on other sports happenings in the Jewish world. The transcript for this morning’s update is below.
We have hit the last week of the 2022 Regular Season! Straight ahead on the Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, we’ll run you through the leagues that have already started their postseasons and get you set for those are about to. Good Morning, I’m Elliot Weiselberg.
Starting out in Girls Hockey where the Heschel Heat have a familiar result, a shutout. The Heat defeated the HAFTR Hawks in their quarterfinal matchup in the City last night by the score of 4-0. On the season, of Heschel’s 9 games played, 8 of them ended in either a shutout win or a shutout loss, including a season opening 1-0 win over the team they beat last night and a 2-0 win over the team they will advance to face, the #2 overall seed Ramaz Rams, in a rematch of the two teams to face in the last championship. The other quarterfinal will see Frisch travel to Kushner with the winner to face off against #1 seed SAR.
Moving over to Boys Varsity Soccer where one semifinal is already set. Top seeded Frisch and #4 North Shore will square off after knocking off the two city teams that we just discussed. The Cougars downed Heschel 9-1 behind 5 goals from senior Judah Volodarsky and the Stars knocked off Ramaz 7-4. In the other half of the bracket, TABC advanced over DRS 12-5 behind a 5-pack from Avishai Avidan and will await the winner of tomorrow night’s contest between SAR and Kushner.
Girls varsity soccer sees half of its semifinal field set as each bracket saw a game played over the weekend. Frisch had themselves a good Shabbos following a 4-3 win over Maayanot on Friday afternoon and will now await the winner of SAR and Heschel, happening tomorrow night and Kushner continued their perfect season drubbing Ramaz to advance to face either SKA or North Shore, which will take place tonight.
Heading outdoors, the quarterfinals are set in both boys and girls tennis. On the Boys side, DRS takes the top seed going undefeated at 6-0 while dropping only one single match of the 30 played this season and will host SAR with the winner to play either Frisch or Magen David. The other side will see West top seed Heschel meet up with YDE with the winner playing either Flatbush or Ramaz. For the girls bracket, Flatbush and Frisch both finish the season atop their respective divisions at 6-0 and will host Ramaz and SKA respectively. Flatbush’s bracket will contain Heschel and Central, while Frisch’s will have HAFTR and SAR.
To the diamond where we enter the final week of the regular season in all 4 leagues.
Boys varsity softball knows it’s #1 seed as YDE wraps up an 8-0 season with a 10-5 win over Shaare Torah on Friday. DRS currently sits atop the East at 7-1, but will need to wait for MAY to finish their season as the Eagles sit at 5-1 and can finish in a dead heat with the Wildcats depending on their remaining two games with Darchei. Out West TABC sits at 5-2-1 but can still be caught by Maor with a win over Frisch tomorrow night, which could also result in a deadlock in the West as the two teams tied each other in their only season meeting.
Meanwhile in Baseball, Flatbush topped JEC to move a win away from clinching the East when they square off with HAFTR tonight in Maimonides Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. Frisch will hope to do the same out West when they meet JEC tonight in New Jersey, after a missed opportunity Sunday, which resulted in a 2-2 tie with Kushner and last night with a 1-0 loss to SAR. JEC is looking to jump Kushner into the final payoff spot, which they can do with a win or a tie.
The 2022 Martin Weiselberg Memorial Junior High Hockey Tournament will take place June 12th in HAFTR. The event will once again couple as a fundraiser for Hatzolah. To help the kids reach their $10,000 goal, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate or sponsor.
