After an intense season opener against Flatbush the Lion‘s looked to carry their momentum over to the home opener against Magen David. Both teams came out looking extremely flat, as the halftime score was only 2-2. In the middle of the third quarter the Lion‘s were leading 3-2, however, goalkeeper Yoni Schechter (’15) committed a foul in the box giving Magen David a penalty shot. Schechter made the save with ease, giving the Lions faith they’d come out victorious. However, late in the game MDY scored sending the game into OT. The Lions got many chances on net in OT capped off by a beautiful goal by Zev Markowitz (’15) who increased his Hat Trick streak to two games.
