Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

This weeks spotlight game takes us to Ben Porat Yosef. Outside it was raining cats and dogs, but those of us lucky enough to be inside the dry gym, were treated to a great game. On court number one, Sharsheret was wearing red and Judaica House was in white.

The game was close throughout, around the end of the second period it looked like Judaica House was pulling away, but the sharp shooting of Sharsheret’s Shana Markowitz, with eight points, and Dova Moskowitz, with six points, tied the game up at 24 each and we headed to the fourth overtime game of the day. In the extra frame, Elisheva Piontica sank a jumper from the corner, giving Sharsheret a 28 -26 lead with 37 seconds to play.

Judaica House raced up the court and with the clock at 32 seconds, found sharp shooter Tifi Teitelman for her most important two points of the day, as she tied the game at 28. Sharsheret headed back the other way, but was denied by the Judaica House defense. Judaica House got the ball with five seconds on the clock. The Judaica House coach called timeout to draw up a play that was designed to prevent a second overtime. The play was designed to get the ball to high scorer Nechama Adler and she delivered with the final two points of her game high 15. The buzzer sounded as her shot cleared the cylinder. The win sent both teams home with identical 2-2 records and all in attendance feeling good about witnessing such an exciting game
