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

The gyms at the Jewish Educational Center have been quiet since the end of the winter sports season and students have been waiting for another opportunity to cheer on their RTMA Thunder. This Wednesday night, the soccer team proved they are worthy of those cheers.

Heading into the TABC game, RTMA was 1-1-1 looking for a big win to separate themselves from rest of the division. Beating last year’s undefeated championship team would be a tall order. The game was close throughout, with neither team holding more than a 2-goal advantage.

With under 3 minutes remaining, TABC scored a goal to bring them within one. As continued peppering goalie Elchanan Preil with shots, RTMA began to hold the ball in the corner. With TABC pressuring the ball, senior Shemaryahu Shulman passed the ball to sophomore sensation Yair Aaron who rocketed home his second goal of the game and sealed the win for RTMA. Other goal scorers were: freshman Jacob Winters (2 goals), sophomore Eli Ukraincik (1 goal) and junior Jason Silverstein (1 goal).

RTMA looks to continue its winning ways on April 11 as they travel to Kushner to face off against the Cobras.
