Team OC Advances to the Gold Medal Game at the JCC Maccabi Games

Team OC is fully leveraging their home advantage at the 2018 JCC Maccabi games by advancing to the Gold Medal game that will be played this afternoon at 2:50 pm.  The Merage Jewish Community Center in Irvine is hosting this year’s JCC Maccabi Games and ArtsFest.

The JCC Maccabi Games, an Olympic-style sporting competition held annually, is the largest annual Jewish youth event in the world.

Team OC clinched their spot with a 5-1 record.

Team OC  took a little bit of time adjusting to the 7 v 7 format on Day 1 of the tournament, sandwiching a pair of wins around an 8-7 overtime loss to LA, Minnesota, Central Florida, Oregon, Dallas.  It did not take long for them to find redemption though as they avenged their only loss the following day with a 12-3 win.

OC then punched their ticket to the Gold Medal game with a 15-1 victory over STL/Aus/Omh/KC/Lou in the Final Four.
