The Amity Boys Ice Hockey Team (2-1) continued its grueling game schedule on Wednesday night at the Louis Astorino Rink in Hamden against the undefeated Sheehan Trojans (3-0).

Everyone played fast and hard in the first period, determined to get the first goal. That advantage went to Sheehan at 4:03 when Anthony DeBalio (6), shot one past Amity’s Brendan Smith (30), assisted by  Luke Festa (13). and. James Stratton (24).

End of the first period Sheehan 1-0.

After returning to the ice, the Trojans did what they had to do, and just 2:47 into the second period, Anthony Romano (3) scored off an assist from Joe Romano (2).

Amity came on strong and Niko Touranis (26) put the Spartans on the board at 6:14.

The Trojans would have none of that, and within 1:30 Sheehan’s Luke Festa (13). pulled his team even further ahead with a goal off an assist from A. Romano (3).

The final period was do-or-die, could Amity tie the game? After 13:31 of fierce gameplay, it appeared that it was all over, and then, suddenly, out of nowhere, Amity’s Jason Dittmann (21) shot one past the Trojan’s Goalie with just 1:30 remaining.

The celebration didn’t last too long because one second later with 1:29 left on the clock, Sheehan’s Joe Romano (2), assisted by Brandon Hiliash (18) slammed one into an empty net sealing their victory.
