Naturally, the game could have gone either way and in the first period it appeared that North Haven was a little more determined to take it.
At 14:06 North Haven’s Aaron Racino asst by Owen Quick got the puck past Amity’s goalie Brendan Smith in his first career start. Then, 31 seconds later, Eli Brubacher, assisted by Racino brought the score to 2-0.
You simply can’t write off the 2019-20 Spartans, though, just 12 seconds after returning to the ice, Amity Captain Nick Kiwanis shot a goal, assisted by co-captain Justin Miller and Connor Bath, giving Amity fans the hope they needed.
At 5:39 in the third, Jason Dittmann tied the game on a power play, assisted by Kiwanis and Dom Harris.
In overtime, both teams battled for that extra point, but nothing more happened and the game ended in a 2-2 tie. No winners, no losers, but an awesome effort on both sides.
The Spartans will play a HOME game against Westhill-Stamford in West Haven at 6 p.m. Come cheer on our boys then.
