TABC’s varsity hockey team traveled to Riverdale on Thursday night, November 20th, to play the undefeated SAR Sting in what would be a very closely played game.

In the middle of the first period SAR scored the first goal to go up 1-0. After a scoreless 2nd period, the Storm came out a little more aggressively, looking to do whatever it takes to put the puck in the back of the net. Just a few minutes into the 3rd, Yehoshua Lerer found Captain Alex Malech at the point. Malech, patiently, settled the puck and fired the equalizer top shelf. The game remained tied, with both teams trading scoring chances, until 1:42 left. On a deep zone faceoff, TABC offensemen Josh Deschino was tied up on the face off, but his linemate, Calev Minsky, stepped in and sent the puck back to Captain Aryeh Berman, open at the point, who fired the puck short side to give the Storm the go-ahead goal. SAR put on significant pressure from there, including pulling their goalie for an extra attacker, but TABC goalie Rami Levine didn’t budge, shutting the door. Ari Fuchs buried an empty netter with less than a minute left to clinch the game for the Storm, 3-1.
