The past weekend was a very busy time for the Amity boys soccer team. On Saturday, the Spartans, (ranked No. 2 in Class LL with a 14-2-2 record) booted No. 31st-ranked  Fairfield Warde 1—0 in a first round match that was played on the artificial turf at West Haven High’s Ken Strong Stadium. Less than 24 hours later, the Spartans blanked xx-ranked Simsbury 2-0 in a second round contest at Finn Stadium in Shelton. The two state tourney contests had to be played at alternative sites as their poorly drained campus field was too wet and too muddy to play on.

While Coach Mike Marchitto insisted that both victories (which improve the Spartans’ record to 16-2-2) was a true team effort, special kudos must be directed at Joey Guerra (who scored all three goals and has now recorded 24 goals this fall) and gold tender Griffin Volta  (who has now chalked up eight shut outs this fall).

Guerra knocked home the only goal against Warde with 21 minutes, 47 seconds gone in the first half. The goal was set up by Justyn Broderick, who dribbled the ball from midfield to an open space near the top of the penalty box at the 18-yard line, and then fed it to Guerra who blasted it by Mustang goalie,  Stevin Bartlett.

According to Marchitto, “This wasn’t our best game. My guys were nervous and anxious at the start of the game and as a result, their play was rather sloppy and sluggish. In addition, Warde put a lot of pressure on us and took us out of our game. Offensively, we weren’t knocking the ball around as much as I’d like to see us do. Defensively, I thought we played very well. We made things easier for Griffin (Volta) as we didn’t give them many shots.”

 Quickly noting that Warde had outshot his Spartans 17-13, Marchitto added, “We gave up too many shots.”

The Mustangs ended their season with a 6-9-2 record.

Guerra’ s first goal against Simsbury (ranked 15thwith an 11-4-1 record) came at 32:42—with help from Matt Whitehall.

“I had just put Matt into the game. He made a run at the ball and nudged it between two Simsbury players. Then, he saw Joey (Guerra) was open so he fed him the ball and he strong-footed it home from the 16. It was a really nice play by both guys,” Marchitto said. “Simsbury is always a strong, super well-coached team so we had to stay on them defensively.”

Taking that 1-0 lead into the second half, the Spartans added an insurance score at 78:26. Ricky Mayer lofted a cross and the Simsbury defense misplayed it. On top of that, for reasons Marchitto didn’t understand, their ‘keeper (Chris Morrison) was about 30 yards out of his goal. Guerra beat him to the ball, which was about 30-35 yards away from then goal, and just rolled it home.

Marchitto added, “I thought we played well against Simsbury. I was very happy with what I saw out on the field. We moved the ball and switches sides very quickly. I’m, not big into booting long balls, but every so often, we did it to keep their defense honest, guessing what we were going to do and where we were going to go  with the ball. Joey (Guerra) did what forwards are supposed to do—score goals. Griffin made seven saves and two of them were really tough saves.”

Amity outshot the Trojans 12-8 and Morrison recorded only two saves.

The Spartans will host seventh-ranked Greenwich (13-2-2) on Tuesday in a 2 p.m. quarter-finals match.

Thanks to Dean Schwartz’s 3-goal first half hat trick, the Amity boys soccer team opened its season with a 4-1 Southern Connecticut Conference inter-divisional victory over Career/Hillhouse Tuesday afternoon in Woodbridge.  Justyn Broderick opened the Spartan scoring when he found the net with 11 minutes, 52 seconds gone in the first half. Joe Babbitt picked up a assist on that score as he headed the ball on net from the corner and Broderick knocked it home. Schwartz followed with goals at 14:13 (with help from Ian O’Brien-Cannon), 20:53 (assisted by Broderick), and again at 29:41 (set up by Aaron Cooper). The losers’ lone tally was recorded by Shem Emelki at 59:02 of the second half. Amity held a wide 24-5 edge in shots. Goalie Jeff Curtin made 3 second half saves.

“I thought we played well enough to win our first game,” said Coach Mike Marchitto. “We’re still getting used to playing together and we have a lot of work to do.”

On Friday, the Spartans booted Jonathan Law by the same 4-1 margin. Ricky Mayer put the Black and Gold onto the scoreboard at17:45. The Golden Eagles matched that score with Jon Costa’s goal at 29:48 but Amity retook the lead when Joe Guerra found the range at 36:00 to give his team a 2-1 halftime lead. Guerra (with help from Babbit) made it 3-1 at 42:04 and Schwartz closed out the scoring with an unassisted goal at the 72 minute mark.

“We’re starting to come together and played well against Law. It was a big improvement over our first game. I thought we dominated play and controlled the ball 75-80% of the game.

The 2-0 winners outshot Law(now 0-2)  24-5.

Amity is back in action Tuesday with a 7:30 PM SCC contest at West Haven.
