The Amity Spartans faced off against the North Haven Indians in North Haven on Saturday, Jan. 5.

It took a while for the first goal to sink into the net and that was 9 minutes in by Amity Senior Captain Jason Csejka, assisted by Caleb Marcin and Nelson Bordeleau.

Six minutes later, North Haven’s Donny Funaro tied the game, assisted by Domenic Biondi.

In the second period, Csejka struck again at 10:48, assisted by Cody White, pulling the Spartans to a 2-1 lead.

After returning to the ice, the Spartans wasted no time finding the net again – and it was a hat trick for Csejka, assisted by Connor Bath and Bordeleau.

Amity wrapped up the game with 5:07 remaining with a goal by Ryan Miller, assisted by Nick Kiwanis.

This was a sweet victory for the Spartans, marking their sixth consecutive win.

Records: Amity 6-0, North Haven 1-1-5

Next Up: On Wednesday, Jan. 9, the Spartans will be at Bennett Rink in West Haven for a duel with Notre Dame-West Haven (4-3), which just had a big win against Fairfield Prep in Overtime. Notre Dame is NOT going to want to lose to Amity. This will be the toughest match-up to date.

Bennett Rink is the home ice for both teams, but on Wednesday, Amity will be the visitor.

Remember what Coach Scooter Richetelli said, “Just Believe.”

I Believe our boys can do this! Of all the teams on the Spartans game Roster, Amity is the ONLY one that is undefeated.

The Staples Wreckers of Westport, hosted the Amity Spartans Boys Ice Hockey team in Milford Saturday afternoon.

The game got off to a slow start with a scoreless first period. Staples goaltender Zachary Bloom made 10 saves, Amity’s goalie Tyler Cole made 8 saves.

The Spartans were first to get on the scoreboard with Jason Csejka’s unassisted goal at 2:56 into the second period.

The Wrecker’s Sam New tied the game five minutes later with his own unassisted goal, then, within two minutes New got another one past Tyler Cole, assisted by Reed Caney and Brian Gray.

Period two: Staples 2-Amity 1. Saves: Staples 5, Amity 10.

Brian Gray got the third period going at 5:22 with a Staples goal, assisted by Matt Bidgood and Zach Stober.

Amity edged closer with Csejka’s second solo goal at 10:45, but that was as good as it got.

Unfortunately, for Amity, Colin Hughes (#8) was cited for checking from behind which led to his being kicked out of the game with just 2.5 minutes remaining and he’s banned from Wednesday’s game as well.

Staples won this one 3-2.

Amity Head Coach “Scooter” Richetelli said his team got off to a late start in this game. “They played well in the third period, but you have to play well throughout the game, not just 15 minutes.”

He added that he wasn’t upset with the outcome, just disappointed in the performance. “We have a lot to work on and we take one game at a time,” he said.

Records: Amity 2-1, Staples 3-1-0

The Spartans host Milford at the Bennett Rink in West Haven on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8:30 p.m.

Boys Hockey: 2015 Has its Fair Share Of Challenges For the Spartans

Coach Lindgren talks to the team during a time out.

Coach Lindgren talks to the team during a time out.

Amity Hockey Coach Gary Lindgren has a challenge before him in 2015, trying to make a young team into a force to be reckoned with on the ice.

With only 6 seniors on the roster this year, Amity is made up primarily of equal amounts of sophomores and freshmen (7 each) and just 4 juniors to carry over to the next season.

As a spectator at Monday’s game it was disheartening to hear the players from the opposing Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe team leave the ice after the first period laughing and trash talking our Spartans.

But, realistically, the Fairfield kids played hard and kept Amity’s goalie, Freshman Tyler Cole on his toes all three periods, while for Fairfield’s goalie, sophomore Mike Grace, it was pretty much a stress-free game.

Lindgren could throw in his hat at this point and just say, “there’s always next year.” but he simply states, “We didn’t play well, we didn’t do as good as we could, but with each game they learn from their mistakes and they’ll get better as time goes by.”

In the first period, Fairfield’s Jake Fuss got an unassisted goal by Cole at 5:17.

Soon after the start of the second period, Fairfield scored again with a goal by PJ O’Reilly, assisted by Wade Petro and Fuss at 1:22.

Then, with just 46 seconds left in the period Fairfield senior Matthew Roberts, assisted by Kevin Boldrighini and Zach Weinstein brought the score to 3-0.

With their confidence in overdrive, Fairfield came out in the final period with a vengeance and just :25 seconds in, Fuss made his second goal of the night, this time assisted by O’Reilly and Trevor Demitt.

Thanks to a nice move by Amity captain Zach Shelnitz who made an unassisted goal at 3:23 in the third period, the Spartans did not suffer a shut out.

The final score was 4-1 Fairfield.

Lindgren clearly was not happy with his team’s performance in this game, but did take a moment to comment on the freshman goalie who made 33 saves during the game. (Fairfield’s Grace made 13 saves). “Tyler worked real hard in this game. He had some nice saves,” Lindgren said.

The Spartans will play Milford at the Milford Ice Pavillion Saturday, Jan. 3 at 1 p.m.

Boys Hockey: Amity vs Guilford — Has Amity Found Its Stride Yet?

Zach Shelnitz #8 scored two goals in Tuesday's game.

Zach Shelnitz #8 scored two goals in Tuesday’s game.

The Amity Spartans Hockey Team is starting to get itself together. After playing hard against the powerful Cheshire team on Saturday and holding their own until the third period when Cheshire pulled ahead, they were denied a tie in the last 2 minutes.

On Tuesday, Dec. 23, with “the other Tyler” Sophomore Tyler Johnston (#31) in the net, Amity took on Guilford.

As in past games the opponent was first to score with Guilford’s Ryan Brand getting a goal, assisted by Jack Petrick and Chris Cafiero, just 2:27 into the first period.

Not to be outdone, Amity answered less than 2 minutes later, tying things up with Adam Moscato’s goal, assisted by Captain Kevin Ryan.

At 4:51 Ryan assisted Co-Capt. Zach Shelnitz in the tie breaking goal.

With Amity ahead by one, the Spartans came out for the second period meaning business.

Moscato scored an unassisted goal at 10:34, pulling the Spartans up further 3-1

Guilford’s Kevin Gaudio, assisted by Joe Neleber, got one past Johnston at 13:25.

The Spartans would have none of that, and less than 30 seconds later, Shelnitz, assisted by Ryan and Charlie Csejka scored his second goal of the game, bringing the score to 4-2.

In the third period, the Spartans dominated the ice, bringing in three goals: Ryan, unassisted at 5:55; Anthony Uscilla, assisted by Liam Caraciolo at 7:28; and Graham Hughes, assisted by Nick Gallucci at 8:15 – wrapping up the victory at 7-2

Amity outshot Guilford 27-26

Johnston made 24 saves while Guilford’s Kyle Dwyer had 20.

Records: Amity 1-1-1; Guilford 0-3

Coach Gary Lindgren is back this year after taking a break last season due to illness, but he is enjoying working with this young team and watching them grow with each passing game.

So far we’ve seen two goalies, Freshman, Tyler Cole (#30) and Sophomore Tyler Johnston (#31) in the net.

Lindgren said both are young and are gaining experience this year with the coaches flip-flopping them between games.

He said Cole did a great job against Cheshire on Saturday, Dec. 20. “They’re a tough team, they’re really good and we battled hard with them.”

Of Johnston’s performance against Guilford, Lindgren said, “Tyler played extremely well, he made some big stops.”

Of the team as a whole, Lindgren said, “Our schedule is tough, we have to come ready to play. Today (Tuesday Dec. 23) I don’t think we played our best. It was good in spots, but we struggled for the first couple of periods, It’s a good thing we were ahead 4-2 after the first 2 periods. We need to play better. Guilford battled, they have some good players, their goalie is a little inexperienced and we took advantage of that but, I thought it was a pretty even game even though we won 7-2.”
