The HSSSC Player Honors – Week Six

Week 6 Honors
The Hapoel Soccer Club Awards Committee has selected numerous Players of the Week this week. This includes:

The “Play Hard” Players of the Week:
• For great efforts and for being two key contributors to the G'dola Boy Green Slime's victory over the Blue Bears, the first two Hapoel Play Hard Players of the Week are... Izzy Kates and Ami Ifrah.
• For great efforts from three boys on the Boy's K'tana Tiveria Red Lions that defeated the undefeated Tsfat Black Cheetahs... Yaakov Singer, goalkeeper Moshe Dovolsky, and the goal scorer in the 1-0 victory Avi Pines.
• Two players from the K'tana Boys Chevron Green Crocs played particularly hard... Sam Hofman and Rafi Singer.
• One player for the Tsfat Black Cheetahs is not the biggest player in the Boy's K'tana K'tana League but... he doesn't seem to know this. Though often out-sized, he's never out-hustled. This Play Hard Player of the Week is... Sachy Cohen.
• Two Players from the K'tana K'tana League Tiveria Red Lions were singled out as playing particularly well and particularly hard by the Hapoel Awards Committee. These two Play Hard Players of the Week are... Daniel Ginsburg (at defense) and Isaac Dubrawsky (1 Goal and 1 Assist today).
• Two players in the Girl's K'tana League also played this week for the Girl's G'dola League Travel Team. Both players played beautifully for the Hapoel S.C. Purple Panthers on Tuesday and both players also played beautifully today. These two Play Hard Players of the Week are... Sheindel Ifrah (Tiveria Red Lions, Scored the teams goal to earn a 1-1 tie) and Kayla Cohen (Yerushalayim Blue Teddy Bears, Scored both goals for the Teddy Bears 2-1 win and 1 goal in the G'dola League game for her team's 3-0 win).
• This player, like every week, was impenetrable on defense. And, like every week, she played very hard. This player for the Girl's K'tana Tsfat Black Cheetahs is... Sarah McNally.
• He finished the regular season in the Boy's K'tana K'tana League tied for leading assister and just had a great season playing for the Tsfat Black Cheetahs. This player is... Gil Melkin.
• This may be a Hapoel Soccer Club first. We have an award for a player who didn't play! She is a top goalie for the Yerushalayim Teddy Bears and, due to illness, today she didn't play. She was greatly missed. And, the Hapoel Awards Committee is giving a Play Hard Award to this girl as a sign of how much she was missed today. This player and goalie is... Naomi Schachter.

The “Play Smart” Players of the Week:
•For playing great defense and, more importantly, some really smart defense, this Play Smart Award goes to a defender for the K'tana Girl's Yerushalayim Blue Teddy Bears named... Hadasah Raskas.
•We only have one Play Smart Award for this week and this young man played very smart for the Tiveria Red Lions in the Boy's K'tana K'tana League. He played some superb defense and some smart defense. This young man is... Dovid Levine.

The “Mensch” Players of the Week:
• The first Mensch Player of the Week ignited the crowd when he scored his goal today. This player has been a top defender in the Hapoel League for years and, today, he scored his first goal of the season. And, to make the goal even more special, this goal tied the game for the Tiveria Red Lions with the Tsfat Black Cheetahs. For his goal, for his effort week-in-and-week-out, for his positive attitude, and, above all, for his menschlikite, the first Mensch Player of the Week is... Ari Byer, Tiveria Red Lions.
• This young man is the second leading scorer in the Boy's G'dola League. He consistently plays hard, consistently plays smart, and is consistently a mensch. But, this week he did something particularly note-worthy. His team, the Chevron Green Slime were playing the Yerushalayim Blue Bears and the Chevron team was ready to give up. This young man took a leadership role and "set his team straight". The team had a negative mind set (e.g., "we can never beat these guys. They're too good.") and this young man refused to give in to this defeatist mind set. He said explicitly that they could win this game and he backed up his words with a 100% effort. He scored Chevron's first goal and was personally responsible for the Blue Bears own goal. This young man did something special today and his name is... Noach Aryeh Schwartz (Chevron).
• Last week, the Hapoel Mensch Players of the Week were the Yerushalayim Blue Sharks from the Boy's K'tana K'tana League and the Boy's K'tana League. Though they hadn't yet won a game this season, they show up every week and give 100% and... never give up. This week, their patience paid off. Both teams came away with solid victories. Both teams won due to a team effort and, for this reason, the Hapoel Mensch Players of the week are... from the Yerushalayim Blue Sharks in the Boy's K'tana K'tana League (Avi Warshawsky, Yonason Lasdun, Nathaniel Felber, Menachem Eizenstat, Shlomo Yaakov Danesh, Daniel Zweben, Avi Miller, Max Elikan) and from the Yerushalayim Blue Sharks in the Boy's K'tana League ( Naftali Ginsburg, Eli Bookstaber, Moshe Schorr, Avi Denicoff, Benjamin Taragin, Zvi Wallach, Dovid Nachman Fisher, Yaakov Edinger, and Meir Retter)

G'dola Girls Week Six
G'dola Girls vs. Beth T'filoh
T he G’dola Girls played Beth Tfiloh on Tuesday and… the girls were unbelievable. To the parents and fans who came to cheer on our girls, thank you. And, to the parents and fans that missed the game, you missed watching a team who epitomized “Play Hard, Play Smart, and Be a Mensch”.

The game summary with broad strokes were as follows: First let me say it was a big field. Even for a regulation sized soccer field, it was a big field. And, the girls made the transition from playing 6 vs. 6 players on a small field to 11 vs. 11 players on a big field beautifully. The girls out-shot and out-played the Beth Tfiloh team but still found themselves down 2-0 late in the second half of the match. While many teams would quit after this second goal was scored, the girls used this second goal to inspire them to work harder. The girls were relentless. The goalies, the defense, the midfielders, the offense… the girls were relentless. And, with minutes remaining in the match, the girl’s hard-work paid off with a goal from Elisheva Swartz. With the score at 2-1, the girls continued to work even harder for the goal to tie the game and… time ran out. The final score was 2-1 for Beth T’filoh being the victor. With this said, what an effort by the Hapoel Soccer Club. Easily one of the best performances in Hapoel Soccer History. I can not wait to talk about this game at the awards banquet! J

A huge Yasher Koach to the Hapoel G’dola Girls Team: Rachel Black, Chana Edinger, Dina Siegel, Leah Meth, Toba Cohen, Miriam Klein, Tirtze Cohen, Zehava Levine, Rivka Malka Swartz, Atara Gedalowitz, Tova Baars, Sarah Bracha Cohen (did not play due to injury), Elisheva Swartz, Adina Wakschlag, Kayla Cohen, and Sheindel Ifrah.
