The Lady Spartans Lacrosse team hosted the Mustangs from Fairfield Warde on Tuesday in Woodbridge.

Amity has not had the most stellar season, going into this game with three losses behind them (Southington 8-13, Shelton 2-14 and Hand 2-14).

The mustangs charged onto the field, winning most of the face-offs and effortlessly scored the first goal in less than 30 seconds, and the first six goals in 4 minutes and 15 seconds.

Goal number 7 flew into the net at 17:51. Warde really had to work for the next goal which came nearly five minutes later with 12:03 remaining in the first period.

And so it continued. The final score was 15-1, Warde.

Records: Amity 0-4, Warde 4-1

The season is young and the Lady Spartans have time to regroup and pull themselves together. We wish them luck.

The Amity Spartans hosted the Daniel Hand Tigers in Woodbridge on Monday April 17.

The game got off to a slow start and was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning.

Colin Beaulieu (#11) scored the first run of the game on Teddy Hague’s single.

At the top of the sixth, Amity was on top 1-0 and it stayed that way until the last inning.

At the top of the seventh, Hand put on its game face and got a couple of good hits in, and after tying with Amity, they had one opportunity after another and twice loaded the bases and managed to get two more runs, leading Amity 3-1.

The Tigers immediately began celebrating, and rightly so, believing they had broken the Spartans five game winning streak.

But wait! As Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

With their opponents in the lead, the Spartans were feeling the pressure to excel. Andy Hague (#1) was first in the lineup. He hit a single and waited for Pat Winkel (#30) to move him forward. Winkel also hit a single and the game was on. Jack Nolan (#22) walked and with the bases loaded, every single action counted.

Max Scheps (#21) was next up, he smacked one out, but Hand caught it, and he was out, but not before Hague crossed home plate as Amity edged up on the Tigers 2-3.

At this point Hand changed pitchers from Michael Elias (#25) to #11 unidentified on their roster.

Rohan Patel (#18) was the first Spartan to face him, and after several fouls, Patel got a hit and brought in Winkel, Nolan followed and BAM, It WAS over. Spartans win 4-3.

Records: Amity 6-0, Hand 3-3

The Amity Spartans hosted the Staples Wreckers in Woodbridge today (April 15).

Pitcher Ben Lodewick (#17) did a great job throughout the game, striking out several players.

In the first inning, Andy Hague (#1) hit a single, then Pat Winkel (#30) brought him in with a triple and then Winkel stole home himself. Max Scheps (#21) hit one over the fence giving Amity a 3-0 lead in the first.

After two scoreless innings, Jack Nolan (#22) ran home on Adam Hurwitz’s (#2) single.

Outfielder Colin Beaulieu (#11) made a nice rolling catch during the 5th inning.

Matthew Sabitsky (#4) made a valiant effort but was called out at third after a chase between second and third.

Staples failed to score in the next three innings and Amity took the 4-0 victory.

Records: Amity 5-0, Staples 3-3
