The Magen David Warriors varsity hockey team kicked off the 2022/2023 hockey season on the road against North shore. This year the expectations are a bit higher considering that the team made the playoffs last year with  predominantly  sophomore players. The Warriors started out strong and scored a goal within the first three minutes of the game when Morris Cohen stuffed a rebound shot from Henry Tawil putting the Warriors up 1-0. However, the Warriors looked very lethargic and played very sloppy after that letting 

the North Shore team scored two goals to take a 2–1 lead at the end of the first period. The Warriors came out much better in the second period and scored two consecutive goals. First by Henry Tawil getting a beautiful pass from Morris Cohen to tie the game at two. Then, a few minutes later Albert Cohen put in a rebound shot that was taken by Sam Falah to put the Warriors up 3–2. The second period ended that way. The third period started with the Warriors playing sloppy again. That sloppy play lead to North Shore tying the game at three. A few minutes later the Warriors answered back. Once again Morris Cohen gave Henry Tawil a pass and Henry scored putting the Warriors up  4-3. The Warriors held on to that lead and even had numerous chances to ice a game once North Shore pulled the goaltender. Unfortunately, that desire to score a goal backfires when with just 20 seconds left North shore tied the game up at four. Once in overtime teams play 3 on 3 plus the goaltender. That leads to a lot more Open space. The tandem of Morris Cohen, Henry Tawil and Albert Cohen dominating but they could not score. The next group of Solomon Betesh, Evan Levy, and Ikey Saff also control the play and towards the end of their shift Solomon Betesh stuffed in a rebound shot from Joey Saff to win the game for the Warriors 5–4. Considering the play was a bit lethargic but it was a nice victory. Hats off to Felix Hadef, Abraham Cohen, Isaac Esses, Joey Fteha, and Isaac Azrak for their amazing contribution to the victory.
