Glastonbury quickly got on the board within the first 2 minutes with Matt Holdaway scoring on an assist from Tyler Maclean.
Less than 6 minutes later Holdaway slammed an unassisted goal by Amity goal tender Tyler Cole, giving Glastonbury a 2-0 lead going into the second period.
The Tomahawks wasted no time in the second period firing relentlessly on Cole. Shane Mack scored just 1:44 into the period, on an assist from Trevor Suydam. 38 seconds later, Maclean fired one in on an assist from Adam Yaeger.
The two teams battled it out passing, intercepting, shooting and finally, at 9:22 Amity’s Captain Kevin Ryan scored an unassisted goal, putting Amity on the board, bringing the score to 4-1 (Glastonbury).
In the third period Amity proved it had the stamina to keep up with Glastonbury, and the first 2/3 of play time, the goalkeepers on both teams did phenomenal jobs keeping their opponents from adding to their scores.
But Glastonbury could not be kept down. At 9:21 Zach McGrail scored on an assist from Suydam. Less than a minute later at 10:15 Yaeger also scored, assisted by Maclean and Holdaway.
Final Score 7-1 Glastonbury.
With 1:33 left in the game Jared Roy, assisted by Justin Catinazzo and Logan Underwood brought in the winning goal.
Amity Coach Gary Lindgren said he was sad, but not disappointed in the boys.
“We have a young team and they have a tough schedule,” he said. “They played hard and put a lot into it today. We have two more games this week.”
Of his team, win or lose, Lindgren said, “They’re working hard.”
