On Monday night, March 17th, fans filled the stands in Ma’ayanot to cheer on the Ma’ayanot Rapids hockey team as they won their opening game against the Kushner Cobras, 7-1! Ahuva Shafier scored the first goal of the night with only a minute left in the first period. Just five seconds into the second period, Alex Fuchs scored a goal for Ma’ayanot; Avital Rosen and Ally Marguiles each scored in the second period as well, bringing Ma’ayanot’s score to 4-0 at the start of the third period, at which point Leora Schiff put yet another point on the board.
Avigayil Shapiro scored with four minutes left to the game, and soon after Tehila Azar followed up, scoring Ma’ayanot’s 7th and final goal of the night.
Goalies Sarah Hiller and Malka Schnaidman tended goal, defending against the tough Cobra offense and saving a combined nine shots on goal. Kushner’s Rachel Mendelson scored against the Rapids with a minute left to the game.
Goal assists go to Aliza Kaszovitz, Yonina Silverman, Shira Sohn, Jessie Levart, Hannah Rosen and Elisheva Taragin.
Congratulations to the Rapids on playing a great game and starting off the season strong!
