IMG_1516Amity hosted Lyman Hall Tuesday Jan. 20 in Woodbridge.

The Lady Spartans has not had the best season so far with a 5-5 record leading up to last night’s game, and senior captain Janaya Young is still on the injured list.

Going up against Lyman Hall with a 5-4 record prior to the game, Amity really needed a win.

The game’s top scoring player was Amity’s junior Molly Dragan (#23) with 20 points, followed by Elise Graham (#24) with 14 points.

Dragan and Kaitlin Thomas each made one 3-point goal. Graham had 10 rebounds and 4 steals and Dragan had 7 assists.

Lyman’s Senior Emma Sears (#4) scored 17 points and Sophomore Sabrina Smith (#20) contributed 14. At 5’5″ junior Alyssa McCann (#1) was a force to be reckoned with, she only scored 2 points, but she was fast and easily sneaked in to block shots and kept things interesting.

Sears made a 3 point goal and Smith made two for the Trojans.

Quarter by quarter

The Lady Spartans took a quick jump on the Trojans, ending the first quarter 12-10.

In the second quarter Amity piled on 14 points to Lyman’s 6, keeping a sizable 26-16 lead going into the half.

Amity stayed strong in the third quarter adding 16 points to Lyman’s 10 and went into the final quarter with a comfortable 42-26 lead.

The Trojans fought back in the fourth quarter racking up 19 points to Amity’s 12, still it wasn’t enough to overtake the Lady Spartans.

Amity wins 54-45.

Records: Amity 6-5, Lyman 5-5

IMG_0248Before they even stepped onto the court Wednesday night, the Lady Spartans knew they were in for a battle of biblical proportions as they faced the number one team in their division — Mercy: a team that averages 70 or more points per game, and … shows no “mercy” for their opponents.

The Tigers wasted no time in proving their dominance, by the end of the first quarter they held a formidable 25-11 lead over the Lady Spartans.

Mercy kept going in the second quarter adding 16 points to Amity’s 10 and going into the half with a 41-21 lead.

The Lady Spartans had a strong third quarter racking up 17 points to Mercy’s 14, but still not enough to get ahead of the Tigers. Third quarter score 55-38 —Mercy.

What happened in the final quarter was just sinful, Mercy holding Amity down to 3 final points while they piled on an additional 21 for themselves.

In true Mercy High School fashion, the final score was 76-41.

The Tigers’ 5’11” Senior Maura Fitzpatrick was the leading scorer with 26 points (three 3-point goals) followed by 5’7″ junior Destine Perry with 18 points (two 3-point goals).

Molly Dragan led the Lady Spartans with 15 points (two 3-point goals), followed by Elise Graham with 12 points

Next up for Amity (4-6): Lyman Hall (3-5) at Woodbridge, Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m.

After four consecutive losses, the Lady Spartans Basketball team was back on top of its game with a real nail biter during the Coaches vs Cancer matchup against Shelton on Friday, Jan. 9.

Amity’s Elise Graham, a junior, was the game’s top scoring player with 17 points, followed by Molly Dragan with 14 points.

The first quarter was tight with Amity ahead by a one point margin 11-10.

Amity added 15 points in the second quarter, while keeping Shelton from scoring. They went into the half with a huge lead 26-10.

Refusing to be embarrassed, the Gaels piled on 16 points in the third quarter, but Amity stayed strong with 15 more points, ending the quarter at 41-26 Amity.

Both teams battled it out through the final quarter with each one racking up 16 more points.

With a 57-42 victory, the Lady Spartans seemed ready for the challenge of going up against Cheshire (which also had 4 losses this season) on Monday.

Cheshire defeated Amity 54-43.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 14, Amity faces the undefeated Mercy team in Woodbridge at 7 p.m.

 BasketballThe Lady Spartans Basketball Team is off to a great start this season. Already 2 for 2 with big point spreads.

On Friday, Dec. 12, Amity crushed West Haven 36-13 and on Wednesday, Dec. 17, the ladies bounced Wilbur Cross out 56-23.

Tonight they take on Hamden at Amity at 7 p.m.

Going in, we knew that the experience of Elise Graham would be a force to be reckoned with, but she is by no means a one-woman show on the court.

Surprisingly, Amity has a very good team this year in spite of losing a lot of “star” players to graduation in June including Allison Denny, Chloe Brinton, Molly Ronan, Mikaila Schmitt, Janae Graham, Amanda Vecchio and Kathleen Feng.

Stay on the lookout for great things from Graham, Kaitlin Thomas, Kate Helfenbein, Sarah Kilian and Molly Dragan, all of whom have shown their skills in the first two games.
