By Abraham Goldman My goal this year was to win a playoff game in the Yeshivah Hockey League. I was in 8th grade and it was my last year on the middle school hockey team. We had an outstanding season. We had a home playoff game. There were 7 minutes left in a game and we scored. With 2 minutes remaining we scored another goal to tie the game up. We went into overtime and it was tied. With 46 seconds left into the second overtime, we lost. Everyone told me I stink and shouldn’t play hockey again. I was very sad after that game. I never gave up. I practiced over the summer times and got better.
