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.
