The MTA Lions opened the season on Friday April 19 against a very talented JEC squad. Everyone expected big things from the Lions this season, and they did not disappoint with an exciting game and final score of 7-6.
However, in their next game held on a chilly and cloudy late afternoon, the Lions faced the Frisch Cougars short-handed. Three key players, Moshe Lifshitz, Eitan Rosenfeld and Shai Kaminetzky, were not available. Despite the weakened lineup, the Lions started the game with the greatest of confidence. When the game was over, however, the Lions held their heads high even though they did not walk away with a victory. Pitcher Ben Tzion Feld had put in another solid outing, but the run support just wasn’t there and they fell to Frisch 3-0.
The 1-1 MTA Lions look to take out their anger on SAR during a double header on Wednesday May 1st. Go Lions!!
