On Thursday afternoon, the (8) Flatbush Falcons will battle the (9) Katz Yeshiva Storm in the Tier 1 Qualifier. Flatbush finished the season with a 9-5 record, but are coming off a tough loss to TABC on March 5th. The Falcons are looking to play hard and gain some momentum in their first tournament game. Katz Yeshiva ended the year with an 8-5 record, similar to Flatbush.
Flatbush has played in typically low scoring games this season as they defend with a passion but have their struggles on the offensive end. Katz Yeshiva stands tall as they have a whopping eight players who are at least 6 feet, including Jonathan Levy who is 6'4". I would expect this game to be on the lower scoring end and also expect great defensive plays by both squads.
The winner of this game will advance to the Tier 1 bracket, while the loser will move into the Tier II Qualifier to play against (24) Mesivta Philadelphia.
This Tier 1 Qualifier will take place at 2:30 PM in the MSAC. The game will be broadcast by
