Quarterback Tova Hornstein threw a bunch of great passes, as they moved closer to the half with each down. On fourth down, Tova threw the ball to Amalia Littwin, who caught it, and started running toward the half when Pizzeria Efrat captain Mollie Eisen pulled her flag out, not even a foot away from the half line. Pizzeria Efrat started with the ball when Hadassah Moryosef, captain of Jerry’s Giants intercepted a pass and ran it into the end zone, with the first touchdown of the game to Jerry’s Giants! For the extra point, Tova threw the ball back to Hadassah who was wide open. Pizzeria EFrat returned to offence, with Adiella Cohnen as quarterback, throwing 10-15 yard passes and advancing each time until the team reached the end zone and got a beautiful touchdown. Just before the half was called, Pizzeria Efrat got another touchdown when Adiella did a handoff with sister Eta Cohnen, who ran it 10 yards, swerving between flag pulls, and straight into the end zone. Before they could get an extra 2 points, Oriyah Goodman sacked the Pizzeria Efrat qb. Jerry’s Giants jumped back on offence with a 20 yard pass from the QB to Amalia. Just as Jerry’s Giants were about to get a touchdown, Eta and Eliana together intercepted the pass, returning the ball to Pizzeria Efrat. Pizzeria Efrat advanced quickly, with a 15 yard pass and a 10 yard pass, passing the half line.
