The Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) girls ice hockey team welcomed Guilford at Hamden on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m.

After a season-starting dry spell, the Blades have been playing strong during the past few games and demonstrating all of the crowd-pleasing skills we’d grown accustomed to in past years.

The Blades owned the first period with Tess Csjeka showing them how it’s done. Her first goal was assisted by Andrea DelVecchio; a second was unassisted and the third — Hat Trick — was assisted by Carsyn Rizzuti and Ilana Laynar.

First Period Score – 3-0 Blades

The second period also was dominated by the Blades. Mia Dow scored the first goal, assisted by Nadia DiNatale. Guilford made a move with Daniella Vickerman getting the Indians up on the scoreboard, assisted by Jacquelyn Violette.

DelVecchio scored for the Blades, assisted by Caroline Cadelina, followed by a Haley Cable goal, assisted by Csejka.

Second Period Score – 6-1 Blades

The Blades came out looking sharp in the third period as well. Shannon Reilly got one past the Indian’s goalie, Julia McDonald, assisted by Cable and DelVecchio.

Guilford answered with a goal by Violette, assisted by Vickerman.

Final Score – 7-2 Blades

Saves: Caitlyn Ranciato made 9 stops for the Blades; McDonald made 23 saves for the Indians.

The 2018 portion of the 18-19 season was not kind to the Blades Ice Hockey Team, but the first game of 2019 gave us a glimpse of the Amity/Cheshire/North Haven girls that we’d grown accustomed to in past years.

On Wednesday, Jan. 2, the Blades were on the road in East Haven for a match-up against Branford.

The first period belonged to the Blades. Tess Csejka was first to score, then Haley Cable made a goal — both were unassisted.

With a two point lead, the Blades came out strong in the second period. Cable scored on an assist from Hannah Sosensky.

Then Branford fought back, Molly Donegan put her team onto the scoreboard on an assist from Meaghan Montenegro. Donegan scored again, assisted by Ashleen Keating, narrowing the score to 3-2 (Blades).

But that wasn’t the end of the second period, Meaghan Hogan slapped in a goal assisted by Andrea Delvecchio. Then it was Delvecchio’s turn to score on and assist from Csejka.

Second period score: 5-2 Blades

The Blades had a very impressive third period, too. They came back out to the ice on fire. Delvecchio made an unassisted goal.

Branford’s Sophia Caturani answered with an unassisted goal of her own.

The high point was when Delvecchio got a hat trick, assisted by Csejka and Cable.

Rounding out the game was Csejka making the final unassisted goal for the Blades very impressive 8-3 victory.

Blades goalie Caitlin Ranciato did a fine job keeping Branford at bay throughout the game.

Congratulations to the Blades and coach John Peschell on your first win of the season, now keep it going!

img_0625The Blades Ice Hockey Team, comprised of talented players from Amity-North Haven and Cheshire played their first game of the 2016-17 season against the Tigers from Ridgefield-Danbury on Wednesday Dec. 7, in Shelton.

Just like last year, the Blades girls are fast and skilled, and quickly scored their first goal and with just 2:21 remaining in the first period, they scored again.

The Tigers made it onto the board in the second period, and our Blades pulled further ahead (3-1) with another goal soon after.

At 9:52 the blades scored another goal, they went into the third period with a 3 point lead (4-1).

With 5:39 remaining in the game, the Tigers slipped one past the Blades’ goalie.

In an effort to pull ahead while two Blades players were in the penalty box,  the Tigers’ goalie left the ice, giving them 6 players against 4, but even with these odds, they couldn’t do any better. The Blades win 4-2.

This talented team of ladies has a good chance of going on to the states — if you have an opportunity to see them play, make sure you do.
