Coming off an unexpected tie against the Kushner Cobras, the MTA JV Lions hosted the North Shore Stars in the Lion’s Den on a cold Sunday afternoon.  Coming into the game, the Stars were 2-1 and the Lions were 1-1-1, both teams needing a win.  The game started slowly in the first period for both teams, with goalies not seeing much action.  But in the second period, the Lions struck first with a goal from Ben Friedman (‘20), his third goal of the 2017-2018 season. Both teams fought hard, each earning a few penalties, but no one else could find the back of the net for the rest of the period.  In the third period, the Stars came out strong, netting a goal just a few minutes in.  Both teams had opportunities, both goalies played well, but Avraham Levi’s (‘20) stellar goalie performance really stood out.  The Lions’ opportunity came with 4 minutes left in the third period, when they had an offensive zone face off.  Off came a shot from Ben Friedman (‘20) at the point, which trickled right through the goalie’s pads.  This goal was enough to give the Lions a 2-1 victory, improving their record to 2-1-1.
