March 6, 2017 -- Riverdale, NY
In a rematch of the entertaining and high scoring 2015 JV Finals, the Ravens traveled to Riverdale to take on the SAR Sting seeking some revenge.
After falling behind 1-0 to the high powered Rambam Ravens squad, SAR was able to turn on the jets, piling up 8 goals, including the final 4 unanswered, en route to an 8-3 triumph in their quarterfinal matchup. Romi Harcsztark continued his strong play of late, scoring SAR's first goal of the game to even the score at 1. Shortly after, on a delayed penalty, Captain Gordie Kolb would score a goal, assisted by Joey Mogilner, that would be the first of an eventual 3 goals scored by SAR in response to a Ravens penalty. SAR went 2-6 on the powerplay, a stellar line, especially when including the delayed penalty goal scored by Kolb. Senior sniper Solomon Freilich, in the final home game in his career, scored 4 goals, tying his career high. Frelich scored goals that gave Sar 3-1, 4-1, 6-3 , and 7-3 leads. Despite taking 4 penalties, SAR was able to kill off all of them and prevented the Rambam powerplay from mustering any momentum. Penalty killing forwards Kolb, Freilich, Mogilner, and Harcsztark were able to stifle the Rambam powerplay all night long. 
Behind strong play in net from Sophomore Henri Kolb, SAR was able to dominate the Ravens in every aspect of the game. Four SAR players had multi-point games, Freilich, Kolb, Mogilner, and Junior Defenseman Ephraim Herstic. 
The Sting move on to their 3rd consecutive Varsity Semifinals where they play the winner of DRS-JEC.
