IMG_2911The Lady Spartans had a tough competitor for their Senior Night game on Jan. 30.

The hard-working Amity team went up against Lauralton Hall in Woodbridge.

But before the two teams hit the court, the senior class members took a bow and no one was moved as much as senior captain Janaya Young, who was sidelined by an injury all season long.

As the game began she symbolically took her place on the court, and overcome with emotion, she soon walked over to sit with her teammates. Still, her inability to play the game she loves and excelled at in past seasons, didn’t squash her spirit as she cheered the Ladies on.

Lauralton quickly dominated the game finishing the first quarter 12-4. The continued their crusade, hitting hard and went into the half with a 27-12 lead.

The Lady Spartans fought back in an exciting third quarter, raking in 19 points and pulling into the lead 32-31.

Sadly, for Amity fans, the Lauralton girls would not have any of that and continued their assault slamming the Lady Spartans with interceptions and foul shots.

And Lauralton was victorious 53-44.

Lauralton’s Amethyst Barzee, a junior, was the Crusaders’ high scorer with 16 points.

Amity’s Elise Graham was the game’s top scoring player with 21, followed by Molly Dragan with 14.

Go!

You couldn’t ask for a better senior night than that which the Amity Spartans Football team had on Friday, Nov. 15.

The Spartans hosted the Hamden Green Dragons in an SCC Division 1 game and won 34-21.

Amity seemed determined to win after being defeated at away games where they seemed to miss passes and keep the other teams from intercepting the ball.

Friday night showed Amity fans just how well their team can play football. Showcasing the talent of many of the 20 senior players who will be moving on next year.

Quarterback David Ryan (19) was spot on, making three touchdown passes, including one in the third quarter that resulted in a heart-stopping 74-yard run by Ben Feola (11).

The defensive line also was hot: Michael Butler (78) made 5 tackles, 2 assists and 1 sack; Joey Choiniere (10) made 8 tackles; and Jesse Kwolek (80) made 5 tackles, 3 assists and 1 sack.

Cory Ricks (3) put Amity on the scoreboard in the first quarter with a touchdown off a pass from Ryan. The extra point kick was not good.

The Green Dragons answered with a TD and point kick. 1st Quarter score 6-7 Hamden.

In the second quarter Feola caught Ryan’s pass and scored a touchdown. Lyle Luth’s (5) extra point kick was good.

Hamden came back with with a TD and point kick.

2nd quarter score 14-13 Hamden

The third quarter brought Feola’s awesome 74-yard run and touchdown. But the extra point kick was no good.

3rd quarter score 19-14 Amity

With everything hanging in the balance and the Green Dragons fighting for a win, the Spartans rocked the fourth quarter with Ryan scoring a touchdown himself and passing to Choiniere who scored on a 5 yard run.

Hamden kept things interesting with a TD and successful point kick. It was anyone’s game with a 6 point spread halfway through the quarter.

Finally, with just 1:50 left in the game, and the score at 27-21,Tyler Burns (9) made a 15-yard run and scored a touchdown for the Spartans. Luth’s extra point kick was good.

Final Score 34-21.

Amity improved its record 5-5.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Spartans will host the North Haven Indians in Woodbridge. A tough rivalry for sure. Come out and cheer on your home team and celebrate with the members of the 1978 Class LL State Football Championship Team as Amity Regional High School Marks the 35th anniversary of its Big Win.
