The Amity Spartans football team hasn’t gotten, nor earned much credit for several years, but now, under the leadership of new Head Coach Craig Bruno and Asst. Coach John Johnson, the boys are more than impressive this year.

Fans had grown used to leaving games disappointed more often than not, but so far this season, Amity has seen more victories than defeats, starting with Harding on Sept. 7, W 26-8; Hillhouse, Sept 21, W 27-18; Wilbur Cross, Sept. 27, W 27-12; and today’s tremendous shut-out in New Milford Oct. 13, W 36-0. The Spartans’ only loss was to Foran on Sept. 14. L 8-21.

We don’t have much information on today’s game, except that at halftime Amity was leading New Milford 29-0.

As stated above, the Spartans shut out the Green Wave 36-0.

Records: Amity 4-1, New Milford 0-5

Amity is on the road again next week, a little closer to home, going up against Notre Dame-West Haven (3-2) at Veteran’s Stadium on Friday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m.

For months frequent visitors of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, 1875 Noble Ave, Bridgeport, have anxiously been awaiting the opening of the new Natt Family Red Panda Habitat.
Rochan, the male red panda came to the zoo as a temporary visitor a couple of years ago, but his popularity led to his permanent residence and the addition of a female companion, Meri.
A brand new larger habitat with better viewing options for visitors has been constructed on the opposite side of the zoo (they are currently in front of the rainforest building) and will be moving to the isolated curved area where the pronghorn used to be (around the corner from the leopards).
The zoo announced today that the grand opening will be on Saturday, Oct. 13, with a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m.
Come help celebrate Rochan and Meri’s new home, with paid Zoo admission.
