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

This past week kicked off the 10th year of the Mitch Gross Basketball League, and as we are nothing if not chivalrous the ladies play first. Our spotlight game takes us to Yavneh Academy, where we had back to back to back games decided by a point or less.

At 12 p.m., team Nina Eizikovitz-Links Residential faced off against the Mighty Macs. Nina Eizikovitz-Links Residential took the early lead on four of Annabel Silverman’s game high 13 points. The Mighty Macs battled right back with four of Alisha Eisner’s nine points and at the end of the half, team Nina Eizikovitz-Links Residential was on the short end of a 17-18 game. The second half was similarly a closely contested game, with five of the Nina Eizikovitz-Links Residential players scoring to try to make up the deficit.The Macs proved to be nothing if not mighty and held off the surge with two huge baskets from Sophia Esse and eight of Eliana Menasha’s team high 10 points (including the first 3-pointer of the season). When the final buzzer sounded the two teams were deadlocked at 25-25.

In the next game, team Oil Tank Services started the game shooting the lights out behind seven of Kayla Schiff’s game high 13 points, taking a commanding five point lead into the half. Rockwell Management would not be turned away, Alexandra Nadritch paced her team with 11 points, as Rockwell Management squeaked to a 29-28 victory.

Game number three was a defensive gem, with both teams battling for good looks, but coming up empty more often than not. Prime Ortho Rehab’s Hannah Bromberg led all scorers with eight points, while Sharing Seats got production from multiple sources. With seconds to play and the score deadlocked it looked like we were headed to our second tie of the day, when cousin Alexa Bromberg got fouled while shooting. Alexa sank one sealing the victory for Prime Ortho Rehab.

The action continues this sunday at Ma’ayanot High School, Yavneh Academy and Yeshivat Ben Porat Yosef. Please come to cheer the girls on and feel free to send pictures to [email protected].
