This past Thursday, the MTA Soccer Lions took on the HAFTR Hawks in the Lions’ Den in the league quarter-finals. The game opened up with junior Daniel Libesman scoring off of the opening kickoff, which eventually would turn into six goals scored by him in the game. During the game, junior Benjy Bral and senior Daniel Silverstein both scored, earning them their first goals in a playoff game. The game was intense, with the goalies for both teams playing well. Additionally, senior Marc Giahn played incredible defense, which helped sophomore phenom Hudy Weiss accrue a plethora of assists. After a scoring barrage, sophomore Yaakov Weisberger put in the final goal in what was ultimately an 18-6 rout. The leading scorers were Daniel Libesman with six and senior Ariel Feuerstein with five. MTA now advances to the semi-finals!
