Jewish Day Schools Cup winners!

The Jewish Day Schools Cup is an annual competition against Moriah College in Term 3 each year, where the top rugby, football and netball teams compete. Last Friday, the boys and girls firsts football teams met, with the rivalry between the Emanuel and Moriah teams always one of high intensity. After narrowly losing the JDS Rugby in Week 8, the footballers were keen to get a win. 

The girls squad, led by co-captains Hannah Kim and Victoria Miller, played an exciting match, going goal for goal with Moriah. Riley Carr from Year 7 scored a great goal and Eden Levit put in an amazing performance, scoring five goals, leading the team to a 6 – 5 victory. 

Congratulations to all the students who have been part of the Emanuel Girls Firsts Team this season, and well done to Riley Carr, Ella Engler, Hannah Kim, Eden Levit, Lucia Meyer, Victoria Miller, Alice Milner and Chelsea Opit for a great win. 

The boys JDS Football Cup match followed, and, as always, proved to be a very competitive match, with both teams playing at a top standard. Led by co-captains Mahely Rosen-Tal and Ethan Berman, The Emanuel boys were eager for a win, after narrowly losing to Moriah earlier in the season in the NSWCIS Cup. After a great team effort and solid defence, the half-time score remained nil all. The breakthrough came early in the second half, with a goal from Mahley Rosen-Tal, and this remained to be the only goal scored in the match, Emanuel winning 1 – 0. 

Congratulations to: Daniel Allul Orozco, Tomer Aron, Julian Baruch, Ethan Berman, Luca Calderon-Havas, Reece Carr, Rishon Cross, Benjy Dyce, Shai Farhy, Boaz Hadad, Ethan Hirst, Leo Latter, Sam Milner, Coby New, Mahley Rosen- Tal, Jamie Schneider, Gabriel Sperber and Jack Smagarinsky. Thank you also to Head of Football, Aytek Genc, for working with the teams during what was a very successful season of football at Emanuel. 

On Monday, the JDS Netball Cup was played in the final match of the tournament. The Emanuel team put in an amazing effort and got off to a great start, winning the first quarter by three goals. Moriah came back in the second quarter, however Emanuel proved to be too fast in the second half of the match, dominating play and coming away with a convincing win, 49-28. It was pleasing to see such a high quality game of school netball being played between the two schools this year. 

Congratulations to: Tess Endrey, Hayley Kanevsky, Lucinda Labi, Mariah Lewy, Siena Michaelson, Charlotte New, Alyssa Symons, Amelie Trope and Ashley Urbach on a fantastic performance and a special mention to captain Brooke Rosen who led the team both on and off the court superbly. 

Winning three of the four JDS Cup matches against Moriah this year, Emanuel has also been awarded the overall Jewish Day Schools Cup for the first time. Well done to all involved!
