Haftr Hawks knew coming into this game against the Magen David Warriors it was going to be a war. The Warriors have been defeated 3 times this season by the Hawks and they were very determined to not let it happen a fourth time. Magen David was in control for most of the rest half using a stingy half court zone. With 4 minutes left in the half, Haftr when on a run that put them up 11 at the intermission.
The 3rd quarter was led by Teddy Cohen of Magen David. Attacking the basket, crafty passing. Also some 3 pointers by Dweck, they willed the Warriors back to down 3 with 3 minutes to go. But Matthew Jedwab had other plans for the Warriors. With some quick pull up jumpers and some crazy passes to Nathan Rosenberg under the basket, the Hawks were able to slowly extend their lead and continued to get stops on the defensive end which led to a 10 point victory 65-55.
Haftr is now 19-1 overall on the season. They await the winner of Frisch/Tabc.
