Eden's Eagles started off Week 9 of WAFI with a 27-0 shutout of the Technolite Tigers. Quarterback Ilana Abell threw one touchdown apiece to Shlomia Berrin and Suzy Tover and ran in two additional TDs as well. On defense, the Abell sisters had a combined three picks and Esti Fuhrer and Orly Kieszenbaum had an impressive five sacks each. In its second game of the night, Eden's Eagles faced off against the dazzling Ziontours Mamas and settled for a 20-20 tie. Ziontours' Esti Mandel and Ayelet Raab each had a touchdown, but going into the last minute of the game their team was trailing 20-12. That didn't stop Raab from doing the impossible, making a one-handed diving grab and crashing into the end zone with just 38 seconds left on the clock. QB Cindy Scarr went for the daring two-point conversion to tie the game, throwing into double coverage and managing to spot Raab for the final points. In Technolite Tigers' second game of the night, they were matched evenly by opponents PAYGEA Panthers. PAYGEA's QB Lauren Lexus threw the only touchdown of the game to Natasha Bengay who squirmed her way through a sea of defenders to score a beautiful 50-yard touchdown. The extra point was scored by Tehilla Toyoyta, ending the game at 7-0. For the fourth week in a row Mishaan Plumbers came out on top, this time soaring over Paige's Lakers. Retired quarterback Esther Feldhamer got the game started with a bang when she caught the first TD of the night. Shortly after, Ayelet Hecht decided to take matters into her own hands, literally, with an interception return for a touchdown. Still not satisfied, Hecht caught a short dump pass and ran the field for an additional TD. With less then 10 seconds on the clock, Rachel Shmidman leaped completely over her defender to catch a gorgeous TD pass and seal the 25-0 win. The final victory of the evening went to Big Blue, who continues to conquer the field, this time blowing the Trumanettes out of the water by a score of 46-0. Quarterback Yael Freedman connected with multiple receivers at will throughout the game, tossing TDs to Baseball Bernstein, Sarit Baily, Adena Brickman, Elissa Sagoskin and rookies Rebecca Sprung and Noreen Sagoskin. Jealous of her mother's stellar performance, Sagoskin Jr. had to top her performance with another touchdown with time winding down. Other results from Week 9: Phone4Less, Burgers Bar 54, Halachic Organ Donor Society 6.
