YU High School Varsity Hockey Bids for League Record Tenth Championship this Sunday
With a win this Sunday, the Yeshiva University High School for Boys / Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy (MTA) Lions will make Metropolitan Yeshiva High School Hockey League history—becoming the first team to win ten championships.
After a dramatic comeback in their semi-final matchup against Davis-Renov-Stahler Yeshiva High School, which saw the Lions score two goals in the final two minutes of a 3-2 victory, the Lions are set to face off against the Torah Academy of Bergen County Storm in the Varsity Championship Game. MTA won both regular season meetings this year against TABC: 2-0 in Teaneck on November 17 and 3–2 in Washington Heights on Feb. 11.
Led by senior Captain Menachem Mermelstein, MTA enjoyed an 11-2-0-1 season, finishing second in their division. The Lions last championship came in 2011.
The Championship Game will take place on Sunday, March 10 at 3:45 p.m. at Lawrence Middle School, 195 Broadway, Lawrence, NY. To purchase tickets to the game, email Head Coach Dovie Quint at firstname.lastname@example.org.
