Due to the threat posted earlier this morning via email message, Amity Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin has canceled today’s games to err on the side of caution.

He has the unenviable task of rescheduling the games at a future date in the coming weeks as the season comes to a close.

Monday’s events are all AWAY games that involve bus travel:

Field Hockey vs Guilford; Girls Volleyball vs Cheshire; Girls Soccer vs Shelton.

Sep 242021
 

Amity hosted Stamford for a Friday night varsity Football game on Sept. 24.

Within the first four minutes the Spartans scored a touchdown and played well throughout the first quarter.
Score at the end of one Amity 7 – Stamford 0
In the second quarter, with 7:25 left on the clock, Amity successfully kicked a field goal and boosted the score up to 10-0.
Amity’s Nicholas Young (14) ran the ball to the 11 yard line. Everyone was optimistic until Stamford intercepted the ball with 5:05 left before the half.
At halftime Amity held on to its lead.
Score after two Amity 10 – Stamford 0. 
 
Back on the field for the third quarter, there was a bit of back and forth, then, with 10 minutes on the clock and Stamford in possession at the 4 yard line, the Black Knights made a touchdown and got on the scoreboard. The kick was not good.
Score Amity 10 – Stamford 6.
Stamford kicked the ball and Amity got it, making a 70 yard return for a touchdown! The kick was good, bringing the score to Amity 17 – Stamford 6.
The Spartans are passing more in this game than they did last Friday, when we saw mostly running plays.
With 1:35 left in the quarter Amity scored another touchdown and had another good kick for the extra point, bringing the score to Amity 24 – Stamford 6.
I don’t know what kind of Lou Holtz locker room speech coach Bruno gave the Spartans today, but the team had a strong confident, winning spirit out on the field this evening.
The final quarter started off strong with Amity scoring yet another touchdown early on, adding another 6 points to their already impressive lead. YES, 30 – 6, that’s how it’s done, Amity!
AND with 6:50 remaining in the game, Amity Scores AGAIN! 36-6, Amity
With 3:09 Left, Stamford made its second goal of the night bringing the score to 36-12. 
Then with only 16 seconds remaining, Stamford came through again, making it 36-18.
Another Win For the Amity Spartans 36-18.  Excellent Job gentlemen, and  Congratulations Coach Bruno.
