The Blades Ice Hockey Team, comprised of talented players from Amity-North Haven and Cheshire played their first game of the 2016-17 season against the Tigers from Ridgefield-Danbury on Wednesday Dec. 7, in Shelton.
Just like last year, the Blades girls are fast and skilled, and quickly scored their first goal and with just 2:21 remaining in the first period, they scored again.
The Tigers made it onto the board in the second period, and our Blades pulled further ahead (3-1) with another goal soon after.
At 9:52 the blades scored another goal, they went into the third period with a 3 point lead (4-1).
With 5:39 remaining in the game, the Tigers slipped one past the Blades’ goalie.
In an effort to pull ahead while two Blades players were in the penalty box, the Tigers’ goalie left the ice, giving them 6 players against 4, but even with these odds, they couldn’t do any better. The Blades win 4-2.
This talented team of ladies has a good chance of going on to the states — if you have an opportunity to see them play, make sure you do.
