Derech Etz Chaim completed the regular season with two outstanding victories over a highly rated Mishaan Plumbing 12-7 and 13-7 to grab the #2 seed as we enter the intermediate stage playoffs.
With QB Gilad Silverman hurt and throwing three interceptions on the night the defense played outstanding and held Mishaan to only one offensive touchdown. Shlomo Berman had two interceptions and Dani Raskas one. The D-line kept up steady pressure and the cornerbacks made big stops.
Dani Eastman back from missing the last two weeks games gave a highlight reel worth of plays with Gilad connecting with him for three touchdowns and when Gilad had to come out with less than a minute left in the game, Berman threw a bomb that Eastman hauled in between two defenders while keeping his toes inbounds to set up the winning touchdown.
The intermediate stage playoffs begin this week with DEC playing a Bais team they defeated earlier this year. In the intermediate stage a team needs to win 2 out of 3 games to advance to the upper tier playoffs with the teams that go 2-0 being the #1 -#8 seeds (based on regular season standings) and the teams that go 2-1 getting the #9-#16 seeds. (The 16 teams that lsoe 2 games are eliminated).
This week with Ben Spear visiting Israel we have a great highlight reel produced by Ben Spear productions! Enjoy
