Touchdown! Dchuan Wilson scores for the Spartans.

Touchdown! Dchuan Wilson scores for the Spartans.

The Amity Spartans crushed the Sheehan Titans 33-6 in Wallingford on Friday night.

NOTE: I was taking photos and did not write down any notes during the game. Although I requested it, no one sent the line scores so I’m winging it from matching the photos to the timeline. Sorry Spartans. You deserve better than this. 

The first quarter was scoreless, then senior Dchuan Wilson stayed ahead of the pack and scored for the Spartans with 1:37 left in the second quarter.  (6-0 Amity)

Amity scored at 8:10 in the third quarter (I believe it was Matt Attolino) and the kick was good.  (13-0 Amity) and (Wilson) again at 4:33 with extra point (20-0 Amity)

Tyler Selmecki put Sheehan on the score board with a 65 yard TD with 33 seconds left in the third quarter. The point kick was no good.  (20-6 Amity)

At 11:01 in the fourth quarter (Attolino) came through with another TD for Amity, and Jordan D’Onofrio’s kick was good (27-6 Amity)

Kevin Nusdeo sealed the win for the Spartans at 6:51 with D’Onofrio’s point kick. Final Score Amity 33 – Sheehan 6.

Records: Amity 1-1; Sheehan 0-2
