Part II of the Round of 16 of The FM Home Loans AFI League was an evening of top competition facing off, with an appearance in the Elite 8 on the line. Teams that battled top teams all year long took care of business versus higher ranked teams that played lower competition. The stars came out to play at Kraft Stadium on a chilly night in Jerusalem in front of their loyal fans. The stage is set and emotions are running high with the goal of reaching the Holy Land Bowl now in sight.
Toras Chaim Vs The Mobsters
Toras Chaim jumped out 13-0 early in the first half with touchdown passes from Dovid Mamurstein and Yossi Malek. The Mobsters fought back in the second half with consecutive scores of their own to bridge the deficit to 13-12. Toras Chaim struck back quickly with a long receiving touchdown from Dovid Mamurstein and then held strong with two big defensive stops behind their stellar defensive line, to win 20-12 and advance to the Elite 8 to face the Rebbishe Vikings.
Pizzeria Efrat Vs Youngblood
Pizzeria Efrat took control early versus a hungry Youngblood squad with quarterback David Abell being part of multiple touchdown scores. The powerful offense and the shutdown defense of the veteran Pizzeria Efrat was too much for the young Youngblood team to handle, who fell in a 52-18 loss.
Orlo Vs OA Huskies
The OA Huskies continued their magical run in the playoffs versus the higher seed team Orlo. OA Huskies had a commanding 15-0 lead right before halftime before they picked off the quarterback of Orlo and took it back for a touchdown to go by the three scores. OA Huskies defense played shutdown football for both halves and played a massive roll in a 40-0 shutout victory.
