TABC ‘Storms’ Rambam in Stunning Upset

On Wednesday, November 30, the 2-1-0-1 TABC Storm Varsity Hockey team traveled to Long Island to take on the 5-0 Rambam Ravens. After some back and forth to start the game, the Storm struck first with Efraim Tiger batting the puck out of the air into the back of the net. The Storm took this lead into the locker room after the first period. To start the second, the Ravens came out flying, scoring three consecutive goals. Goalie Solly Weiser’s stellar play kept the deficit to two. Down 3-1, the Storm finished the second period with an aggressive last minute and felt confident going into the third to mount a comeback. After coincidental minors, the teams battled three on three, where Akiva Weider scored on a rocket from the point to cut the deficit to one. However, Rambam came right back, scoring to bring their lead to 4-2. With the bench alive, the Storm continued pressing and with a little less than six minutes left, Josh Wertenteil found the back of the net to once again cut the lead to one. Then with 2:45 left, captain Zach Rothenberg took the puck from the corner toward the net and stuffed it in to tie the game at four. The Storm continued their press and played shut down defense to take the game into overtime. Following numerous chances on both sides, including a tremendous game saving stop by Weiser, Akiva Weider sent the puck from the point toward middle and Zach Rothenberg threw the puck towards the net, creating a rebound that found its way to Efraim Tiger’s stick, who put the puck in the back of the net to complete the comeback for the Storm.
