After a three-week midseason break, WAFI football returned last Monday. In the opening game of the night, Halachic Organ Donor Society must have underestimated its opponent and was in for quite a surprise. Eden's Eagles annihilated with a 65-0 victory. Quarterback Ilana Abell threw four touchdowns, a pair to receiver Shlomia Berrin and one apiece to Orly Kierszenbaum and Sari Zaiger. On defense, Abell had a very impressive six interceptions, four which she returned for scores. In total, Eden's Eagles ended the night with a whopping 10 TDs. Elsewhere, Paige's Lakers had quite a lot to celebrate this week, shutting out the Trumanettes 43-0 with the return of QB and star player Ahuva Odenheimer, back from Canada for her first game of the season. On the first play of the game, Lakers' Danya Sloman picked off the ball and ran the length of the field for a nice touchdown that set the tone. Offensively, Odenheimer played as if she had never left, racking up two interceptions on defense and connecting with Adi Taylor four times for scores on offense. Nili Block and Odenheimer each had TDs of their own as well. The third shutout of the night was made by Mishaan Plumbers who played beat Technolite Tigers 26-0, QB Aviva Gershon and Ayelet Hecht hooked up twice for TDs and Zehava Katz had a nice TD of her own. On defense, Katz had three sacks and Rachel Shmidman piled on a remarkable five of her own. Big Blue remained undefeated, demolishing PAYGE 55-0. Quarterback Shana Sprung threw eight touchdown passes, Yael Freedman caught three, and Baeball Bernstein had three sacks and five extra-point conversions to lead the explosive attack. In other WAFI action this week Phone4Less, Burgers Bar recorded a tight 21-13 victory over Ziontours and Nartiv won an overtime thriller over Law Office of Seth Michael Goldstein, Skid Bladnir in the final game of the night, 12-6, on an interception by Dani Weiss that she returned to the house to close the lights.
