On Friday night, the Amity Spartans football team went up against the Cheshire Rams in a non-conference game in Woodbridge.

Following a painful 42-6 loss to Shelton on September 9, going up against the Rams could not have been an easy task.

There was a faint bit of hope at the beginning of the first half, when the first quarter was scoreless. Yet Cheshire came on strong and made the first touchdown of the game almost immediately after the second quarter began. They went on to make 26 points, and kept Amity at zero.

The third quarter was disheartening for Spartans fans as the Rams tacked on an additional 10 points, and despite their best efforts Amity could not get on the scoreboard.

With the Rams ahead by 36, the Spartans, determined not to be shut out, showed what they were capable of in the final quarter, successfully making two touchdowns and extra points. Narrowing the point spread 36-14 in the end.

Colin Beaulieu (#11), Chase Burzynski (#32) and Ryan Sabo (#15) consistently show their strengths in each game. Junior Jordan Conn did an excellent job kicking against Cheshire. Paul Buda, also a Junior demonstrated strong quarterback skills.

 

The Spartans have a home game against Jonathan Law (1-1) on Friday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m.

That will be the last Home game until October 28.
