Boys Hockey: Joey Schittina’s Awesome Shot Wins It For Amity In Overtime

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Sports  Comments Off on Boys Hockey: Joey Schittina’s Awesome Shot Wins It For Amity In Overtime
Feb 202018
 

The Amity Spartans hosted the Tri-Town Knights in West Haven on Monday, Feb. 19.

The game got off to a slow start, oh, everyone tried to score, but no one managed to get one past either of the goalies.

In the second period, Tri-Town was first on the scoreboard at 3:30 with a Zack Roy making a goal, assisted by Andrew Gaines and Jacob Ellis

Seven minutes later, at 11:11 Amity’s Joey Schittina tied the game, assisted by Jamie Blum and Jacob Silliman.

The third period saw a lot of furious action, with Amity far outshooting Tri-Town, yet it mirrored the first period with no advance in the score on either side.

In overtime, the teams had 8 minutes to make it or break it.

Both teams had about equal possession time, then, with just 2:49 remaining, Schittina magically tipped the puck into the net past a stunned Payton Emrick. This was Schittina’s second goal of the game. He was assisted by Michael Miller and Brian Early.

Score by Periods

Amity         0  1  0  1  Total 2

Tri-Town    0  1  0  0  Total 1

Congratulations to Joey Schittina for a job well done, and to the two goalies, Amity’s Michael Holloway and Tri-Town’s Payton Emrick, for all of their hard work throughout the game.

Next Up: Amity has three more games remaining in the regular season. Thursday, Feb. 22 Away vs Trinity Catholic at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 24, Home vs Watertown-Pomperaug at 3 p.m.; Monday, Feb. 26 Away vs Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe at 8 p.m.

Lewis Retires From Orange Police Commission

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, Police & Fire  Comments Off on Lewis Retires From Orange Police Commission
Feb 192018
 

A message from the Orange Police Department:

On Monday, February 12, 2018, the Board of Police Commissioners held its regular meeting, as it does on the second Monday of every month. This one, however, was a little different, as it was Board of Police Commissioners Chairman Don Lewis’ last meeting- he has announced his retirement from the Board.

Commissioner Lewis has spent a lifetime in public service, from his time as a US Marine in the Korean War, to his work with the Orange Rotary, and of course, his twenty-five years as a Police Commissioner for the Town of Orange.

In addition to being chosen as Chairman of the Board of Police Commissioners more than twelve years ago, Don Lewis was named a ‘Living Treasure’ by the Town of Orange in 2014.

The Orange Police Department asks you to join us in thanking Commissioner Lewis for more than two decades of dedicated service to the Board of Police Commissioners and the men and women of the Orange Police Department. He will be missed, but we wish him all the best in retirement.

Boys Hockey: Jordan Conn’s Hat Trick Helps Amity Shut Out Newtown

Feb 182018
 

With the regular season drawing to a close, it is imperative that the boys’ hockey team and every team performs their best on the road to the SCC Championship games and then, hopefully to the state competitions.

From the very first scrimmage, Orange Live expressed its belief in the Amity Spartans Hockey Team and after an “okay” season they are finding their stride — and just in time.

With their Valentine’s Day win over North Branford, the Spartans qualified for the upcoming tournament.

On Saturday, Feb. 17, the Spartans (9-6) were on the road in Danbury for a matchup against Newtown (7-10) and they continued to show their excellent skill on the ice.

As you can see, the game was 100 percent Amity.

First Period

Colin Hughes slapped one in unassisted, at 1:25 and put Amity on the scoreboard.

Second Period

The second period was huge for the Spartans just 4:34 after returning to the ice, Jordan Conn made a goal, assisted by Michael Miller.

Just three minutes later, Nelson Bordeleau scored on an assist from Adam Moscato. After that, the scoring was fast and furious. Joey Schittina made an unassisted goal within 35 seconds of the last one, and 50 seconds later Brian Early made an unassisted goal of his own and two minutes later it was Conn’s turn again, assisted by Early.

Third Period

Conn made his third (hat trick) goal on an assist from Jamie Blum. Then two minutes later Michael Decesare scored on assists from Justin Miller and Jake Silliman.

The Spartans win 8-0!
