The Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) Girls Ice Hockey team had a phenomenal regular season and made it all the way to the State Quarterfinal game against Suffield in Enfield today.

We’ve come to respect this team’s spirit and athletic ability this season. From the very first scrimmage, we knew they would make it to the State Tourney and hoped they could make it to the end.

This game was a heartbreaker, so close.

Here’s what happened:

First Period

The first period was scoreless, with both goalies working hard to keep it that way.

Second Period

Suffield’s Sophie Lupone was the first to score, assisted by Molly Dowd just 3:21 after returning to the ice.

With 6:12 remaining in the period, Tess Csejka tied the game for the Blades on an assist from Megan Spring.

Third Period

With the determination that we’ve seen all season long, the Blades quickly pulled ahead with Melissa Montesi’s goal, assisted by Cally Dixon.

It only took 20 seconds for Suffield’s Ana Tittmann to tie the game with an unassisted goal.

The girls battled for possession and the goalies blocked as many shots as they could, then, with just 7:28 remaining in the game, Sophie Lupone, assisted by Sydney Lupone got one past the Blades Juliana Daddio.

Final Score: Suffield 3, Blades 2
