If Week One of our basketball season is a litmus test as to how good our teams will be this year, we have lots to look forward to this season!
Kicking off Hebrew Academy’s numerous wins were the Bantam Girls (Grade 7). On October 22, they went to Herzliah in mid-season form and beat a very good Herzliah team 30-20. Then, On October 26, our girls beat the Bialik Bulldogs 30-10. Our Bantam Girls are off to a great 2-0 start in Division 1. Their next game vs. Kuoer Academy is November 10 at HA at 4:45 pm.
On October 26, right after our Bantam Girls beat the Bialik Bulldogs, our Bantam Boys easily cruised to a 42-17 victory against the Bulldogs and are now 1-0 in GMAA (Greater Montreal Athletics Association) Division 1. Their next game is November 12 at Herzliah at 4:00 pm.
On October 28, spectators were treated to an amazing game as our Midget Boys took on a very big St. Georges squad. Down 20-15 at the half, our boys went on to a huge 27-2 run in the third quarter and cruised on to a 57-32 victory. Our Midget Boys are 1-0 in Division 1. Their next game is November 9 at Maimonide VSL at 5:15 pm.
Our Juvenile Girls walked into St Georges on October 27 ready for battle, and a battle it was! Down 24-18 going into the fourth and final quarter, our girls turned up the tempo and went on to tie the game and send it into overtime… then double overtime. Foul trouble hurt the girls’ chances as our 2-point guards got fouled out. The girls ended up losing a very hard-fought battle by one basket. Great Game! We look forward to an amazing season with this team! Their next game is November 11 at HA vs. ECS at 4:45 pm.
On October 27 our Juvenile Boys welcomed a determined Herzliah Huskies team. Both teams fought hard but our HA Heat practices paid off as our boys were too much to handle in the second half and they went on to win by a score of 48-35. They are now 1-0 in Division 1. Their next game is November 12 at Bialik at 5:15 pm
The Jewish International Sports Association Tournament (J.I.S.A) will be starting next week. Please click here for a full schedule.
We are extremely excited for an amazing season and we encourage everyone to come cheer on our Heat!
GO HEAT GO!
