Dominant Defense, Eitan Pfeiffer’s Scoring Leads #13 MTA Past Hillel of Pittsburgh

Updated: Sep 2, 2019

The MTA Lions defense started off strong and led the Hillel Heat 9-0 by the end of the first quarter.

In the second, Hillel’s Benji Marcus hit a three pointer to open the scoring, and the team would score ten more points to make it a reasonable 25-13 halftime score.

MTA broke the game open in the third quarter, led by Eitan Pfeiffer scoring six of his team-leading 14 points. Point guard Hudy Weiss and Forward Eitan Warburg each scored ten points in the contest, leading MTA to a 40-22 lead after the third.

Junior Tzvi Zigelstein showed energy off the bench, scoring seven fourth quarter points in an eventual 50-30 victory for the Lions.

Hillel Junior Aaron Kraut led his team with 12 total points, including six in the third quarter.

MTA will play the #12 Beth Tfiloh Community School Warriors at The Frisch School at 1 PM, and Hillel will play in the Tier IV tournament on Saturday Night in the Max Stern Athletic Center.
