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