Seventh Grade Knights Keep on Rolling

The Noam Knights defeated Yavneh 41-37 in a game that was a lot closer than many had expected.

Playing without one of their top players, Yavneh was led by the inside play of Ami Citron (18) and the sweet shooting of Eitan Dukas (13) and was able to build a 6-point lead early in the 2nd quarter. The Knights responded to the challenge extremely well led by terrific defense from Yoni Mann and Yehudah Mirwis and were able to take the lead going into the half.

The Knights defense was strong through the second half giving up only 4 points until there were about 3 minutes left. With the Knights leading by 9 late in the game, Yavneh continued to fight and made one last run cutting the Noam lead to 4. But Noam was able to hold off the rally due to the incredible defensive efforts of Sam Bendheim and Billy Krause, each blocking many Yavneh shots in the frantic last minute and grabbing every big rebound.

Bendheim (14) and Krause (9) were the leading scorers for Yeshivat Noam
