In his second career start as quarterback, senior Alex Silberstein threw for a career-high four touchdowns today along with one rushing touchdown as the Firehawks beat YULA 40-13 in the annual rivalry game.
Playing on YULA’s home field at Poinsettia Park Recreation Center, senior wide receiver Eitan Halpert had two touchdowns to make it four so far on the season. Junior Zack Hirschhorn and sophomore Zack Muller each scored one touchdown.
Defense showed up as well in today’s win, collecting five interceptions — including a pick-six from junior cornerback Daniel Ornstein.
It was the second win of the season and kept alive the Firehawks’ undefeated record in the Coastal league since the team was formed in 2014-15.
Game notes: Senior Edan Sokol DNP (visiting brother in NY).
Next up: St. Pius Thursday at 4:30 at PMA Field.
