The Lady Spartans hosted the Guilford Indians in Woodbridge for an SCC match-up on Tuesday.

Both teams were pretty evenly matched at the get-go, but Guilford got off to a hot start with Celia Mariconda and Ella Stanley both scoring in the first half.

The Indians kept Amity’s sophomore goalie Payton Rahn busy for much of the game.

Tess Csejka (#18) scored the only goal for the Spartans.

Final Score: Guilford 2, Amity 1

Records: Guilford (8-1-1); Amity (8-2-1).

Last year, the Amity Dance Team offered elementary school students an opportunity to practice with them, learn some routines and then perform before a large audience at a varsity football game.

The program was very popular and everyone, both the pre-teens and high school team members, had a blast.

The Dance Team has decided to do it all again this year and anyone in 3rd to 8th grade is invited to sign up.

The cost is $40 for the practice sessions and performance and includes a t-shirt to wear during the half-time show.

The practices will take place at Amity High School, 25 Newton Road, Woodbridge, on Wednesday, Oct. 24 and Thursday, Oct. 25 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 26 from 4:30-6 p.m. with the performance at the 7 p.m. game during half-time.
