The 2018-19 Amity Spartans Boys Ice Hockey Team is already showing a lot of promise. On Wednesday evening the boys declawed the Masuk Panthers 11-1 in a scrimmage game in West Haven.
Tonight’s event will be much more telling, as the Spartans go up against three powerhouse teams in the Jackie Coyle Jamboree at Edward L. Bennett Rink at 6 p.m. West Haven, Notre Dame-West Haven, and NFI will give us an opportunity to see our boys in the most challenging experience on the ice so far.
On Wednesday, we saw how skilled our goalies were and the exceptional teamwork of our Spartans. The 2018-19 team is not afraid to shoot, grab the puck from their opponents, and put themselves out there. If we see that same spirit tonight, going up against some of the toughest teams in the area. I believe in the Spartans, and even though the Jamboree only gives you a taste of things to come, I think you will see some impressive action out on the ice tonight.
