The Amity Spartans Boys Basketball team hosted the Daniel Hand Tigers in Woodbridge on Friday night.

The Spartans had the lead in the first two quarters, going into the half at 27-20.

The Tigers pulled ahead with a great third quarter and 19 points to Amity’s 11 – Score 39-38.

Both teams fought hard for the rest of the game, tying in the fourth at 48 and going into overtime. Free throws brought them to a 50-50 tie after the first overtime period.

Early in the second overtime, Tyler Thomas added 2 points for the Spartans with a basket. Then Hand tied it up at 52. Amity’s James Van Hise pulled Amity ahead to 54 -52. Hand moved forward with a foul shot, but with less than 20 seconds left on the clock, Joe Benedetti closed things up with a free throw giving Amity a 55-53 victory.

Two Tylers, Amity’s Tyler Thomas and Hand’s Tyler Boris were their respective team’s high scoring players with 19 points each.
