The Amity Spartans hosted Stamford/Westhill in West Haven on Wednesday night. The student fan section came out to watch them play, and the parents were there too, as was I.

What was going known in advance to be a huge challenge, turned out to be so much more.

Not only does Stamford have really handsome uniforms, but they also have a lot of tricks up their sleeves.

When Amity first came out onto the ice, they had their game faces on, looking strong and determined to be contenders in this battle. Brendan Smith was the goaltender and he showed off some really impressive ninja moves in the first period. Amity outshot Stamford and kept Jared Maloney on the move, but at the end of one, the score was a tie at 0.

1:29 Jason Marchese assisted by Tyler Tuccinardi, 3:24, power-play goal by Marchese assisted by Tucker Healy and Tuccinardi, 10:34 shorthand goal by Healy assisted by Jason Bacco, 11:20, shorthand unassisted goal by Gavin Dolan, 12:14 Edward Zelerman scored the fifth goal of the game assisted by Healy and Tuccinardi.

Finally, in the second, just 26 seconds after Stamford scored, Nick Kiwanis got one past the defensive line and Maloney, assisted by Connor Bath and Caleb Marcin.

Second-period score: 5-1.

Could Amity recover from this in the third period?

After the Zamboni smoothed the ice Stamford lined up outside the rink and the refs put the nets in place as the clock ticked down the seconds, someone asked, “Is Amity coming out?” And there they were, taking to the ice like they wanted to take care of business.

Amity fans didn’t have to wait too long, at 2:48 Connor Bath scored with a power-play on an assist from Justin Miller. Now we’re talking! But Stamford had other plans, it only took 56 seconds for Healy to score an unassisted goal, and it was downhill for the Spartans from there.

At 9:02 a power-play goal and Healy got a hattrick assisted by 24. A minute later Jordan Grabine shot one over Smith’s shoulder for a power-play goal assisted by Ethan Skaug.

Then with just 4:03 remaining Hunter Gilchrist slipped one in behind Smith’s back assisted by Bacco.

Stamford remains undefeated with this 9-2 victory.

Although I didn’t speak to Coach Mike Richetelli after this game, I believe he would have said something like, “You have to play if you want to win.”

Records: Stamford 6-0, Amity 1-3-1

The Amity Lady Spartans and Crew.

The Amity community loves the Amity Girls Varsity Basketball Team.

We appreciate the Lady Spartan’s good sportsmanship, team play, and amazing moves.
We celebrate with them when they win, and share their pain when things don’t go so well.
The girls gave us a memorable regular season, and last night, in East Haven, they went up against the #2 SCC team — Career. They gave it their all until the final buzzer.
Mikaila Schmitt was the high scorer with 19 points; Elise Graham made 17 points; followed by Janae Graham with 9; Chloe Brinton 6; then Molly Ronan and Amanda Vecchio each adding 2 points.
They lost a hard fought battle 65-55.
Parent Derek Graham, who has not missed seeing his two daughters play yet this season, said, “We played a very good Career team which will prepare us for the State Tournament coming up next Monday.”
The Lady Spartans may not have won the division title, but the State is still available.

The Spartans played hard, but had their helmets handed to them in an SCC Division I game at West Haven.

The most impressive play for Amity was a touchdown with one second left on the clock which put the Spartans on the scoreboard.

David Attolino, David Buono and Joey Choiniere each scored for the Spartans. Choiniere also blocked a punt.

Fighting back the cold and the trash talk from the opposing team, the Spartans lost this game 47-24.

Keep your eyes open for Phil Brodsky’s real coverage of this game — he doesn’t insert his opinion.
