For many years Brian Gonsalves worked alongside Mike “Scooter” Richetelli assisting Gary Lindgren coach the Amity Spartans Hockey Team. This year, he brought that experience with him as he took the helm at Daniel Hand, coaching the Tigers.

Daniel Hand was the one team on Amity’s season game schedule whose record most closely mirrored their own. So with those two factors the “away” game on Wednesday, Jan. 23 promised to be interesting.

Both teams came out ready to win, but Amity shocked everyone with its first goal in the first 10 seconds on the ice, thanks to Ryan Miller.

Halfway through the period Hand tied the game with a goal by Ethan Massey, assisted by Logan Massey. Just 90 seconds later, Griffin Fitzmaurice added a point assisted by Michael McKeon.

First Period Score: 2-1 Hand.

Amity came out strong in the second period with Cody White tying the game just 5:16 after returning to the ice.

Six minutes later, Hand struck back and reclaimed the lead with E. Massey’s second goal of the game.

Well, Amity Captain Jason Csejka would have none of that, and tied it up again in 23 seconds, assisted by Nelson Bordeleau.

With 27 seconds remaining Holden Prestash, assisted by Tatum Fitzmaurice, pulled Hand back into the lead.

Second Period Score: 4-3 Hand.

The final period belonged to the Tigers and included two Hat Tricks.

It wasn’t the most exciting action we’d seen on the rink, but Hand came alive 11:35 in with T Fitzmaurice’s goal, assisted by John Gagliardi and G Fitzmaurice.

Just 46 seconds later E Massey earned his Hat Trick, assisted by L Massey.

As the clock ticked down to one minute remaining, T Fitzmaurice scored again and got his Hat Trick.

Final Score: 7-3 Hand.

Records: Hand 10-1-1 ; Amity 7-4

 

Let’s Go Spartans! Come On Amity – Just Believe

Today at 4 p.m. the Amity Spartans boys Ice Hockey team will face perhaps their toughest (and most evenly matched) opponents to date – the Daniel Hand Tigers at the Northford Ice Pavillion.

While other press dwells on the idea that Amity lost three consecutive games Orange Live sticks with other, more important facts:

1) The 2018-19 Spartans are an extremely talented team.

2) Since day-one of practice, they have acted like family.

3) They won their first 7 games of the season, against teams that some said would crush them.

4) They are blessed to have a phenomenal head coach that is well respected by other coaches for his methods and experience.

5) They have a great coaching team.

6) The Spartans have the speed and skill to play well against any opponent and their fans – including the Amity Army – and I believe in each and every one of them 100%.

NOTE: Hey boys, you CAN clip the Tigers’ claws and own this game. Stay out of the penalty box and out on the ice where you’re needed. My slogan for you this year is “Just Believe.” Coach Scooter Richetelli said it early on, and if you believe you can, then you can.

The Amity Boys Swimming and Diving team hosted Daniel Hand at the Orange Town Pool Wednesday night.

Although the Hand Tiger’s  diver Teddy Zeng received extremely high (near perfect) scores for the execution of every dive he performed, Hand came up 6 points shy of a victory. [It was charming how Zeng stayed true to his heritage and stood at the edge of the pool and bowed after his scores were revealed]

The Spartans swimmers were exceptional in so many other events and earned a 96-90 victory.
