The Amity/North Haven/ Cheshire coop team (known as the Blades) played a scrimmage game against Hall/Conard at Veterans Rink in West Hartford on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
We’ve come to know the Blades as nearly unbeatable in past years, but new season, new team, you can never tell how things will go.
Last night wasn’t their night, they lost to Hall/Conard 5-2. The good news is that as a scrimmage, it doesn’t reflect on their season record either, and these girls have a long way to go until the end of the season. There are several familiar names still on the roster too.
Here’s how the game went last night.
Hall/Conard’s Nikki Herz scored the first goal off an assist from Luci Alissi.
Score 1-0 HC
Our Blades’ Andrea DelVecchio tied the game off an assist from Shannon Reilly.
HC’s Maya Borden made an unassisted goal. Then, Abby Goncalves scored, assisted by Gracie Cho.
Score 3-1 HC
Out of the gate, the Blades’ Meaghan Hogan scored on an assist from Tess Csejka.
HC forged ahead with an unassisted goal by Liv Fernandez, followed by the winning goal by Claire Ittleson, assisted by Nikki Herz.
Final Score 5-2 Hall/Conard
