On Wednesday afternoon, Year 5 and 6 boys from Morasha competed in the first Maccabi Football tournament. Both Morasha teams did very well.
Morasha A which included Rafi Gershon, Asher Weissbart, Liad Rahaimim, Noah Posniak, Alex Kramer and Joey Nyman lost their first game narrowly but went on to win their next four games and storm into the quarter finals.
Morasha B which included Amitai Jesner, Ikey Jesner, Asher Morris, Koby Phillips, Elijah Zwick and Boaz Goldberg had some mixed results – winning two and drawing one. This meant that there was a penalty shootout against Matlida Marks to clinch the last quarter final place. Despite missing their first penalty, Morasha B won their shootout 3-2. Morasha B unfortunately were to lose narrowly 1-0 in the quarter finals, but it was a brilliant effort from the side.
Morasha A won their quarter final match before losing to a late goal in the semi finals. Both Morasha teams did their coaches and school very proud, showing great sportsmanship throughout.
