Last year, the Amity Dance Team offered elementary school students an opportunity to practice with them, learn some routines and then perform before a large audience at a varsity football game.

The program was very popular and everyone, both the pre-teens and high school team members, had a blast.

The Dance Team has decided to do it all again this year and anyone in 3rd to 8th grade is invited to sign up.

The cost is $40 for the practice sessions and performance and includes a t-shirt to wear during the half-time show.

The practices will take place at Amity High School, 25 Newton Road, Woodbridge, on Wednesday, Oct. 24 and Thursday, Oct. 25 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 26 from 4:30-6 p.m. with the performance at the 7 p.m. game during half-time.

Michael Young TD number 3

The Amity Spartans Varsity Football Team hosted the Hillhouse Academics in Woodbridge on Friday night, Sept. 22.

Hopes were high for a Spartans victory, with the stands full of fans, or as Channel 3’s Joe Zone put it, “The largest crowd he’d seen all night.”

Even though Hillhouse was first on the scoreboard with 6 points, the Spartans did not disappoint. With 4:44 left on the clock in the first quarter, Amity rushed ahead of the Academics with Michael Young’s first touchdown of the night.

Junior kicker Abyan Nawaz added another point, making the score 7-6 Spartans.

In the second quarter, the Spartans continued to shine, scoring another touchdown and extra point around the halfway point, then, with 2:56 remaining in the first half, Young made his second touchdown, but Hillhouse successfully blocked the extra point.

At halftime, Amity leads 20-6.

Soon after returning to the field, the Academics made their move and junior Tre ronn Bryant made it safely past the goal line.  (20-12)

With less than 5 minutes left in the third, Young made his third touchdown, and the extra point was good.

About 90 seconds later, Hillhouse scored again bringing the third quarter score to 27-18.

The fourth quarter was uneventful, with a bit of back and forth, but no one was able to add any points.

Amity wins 27-18

Records: Amity 2-1, Hillhouse 0-3.

Next up for the Spartans, a HOME game vs Wilbur Cross (2-1) on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m.

Football Season Begins At Amity, How Will Coach Czepiga’s Boys Perform?

Here come the Spartans

Here come the Spartans

The Amity Football Team is what some call a “Young Team.” With 7 not so stellar seasons behind them, maybe 2016 is their time to stand out in the crowd.

The Spartans are an SCC Division II team and last year’s record was 2-8.

Now in his second year as head coach, Ted Czepiga will enter the William Johnson Football Field at Amity with the 2016 team for its annual game against the Shelton Gaels at 7 p.m.

Amity lost four valuable players with last year’s graduation: Quarterback Mike DeVito; Kicker Jordan D’Onofrio; Tight End Chris Daddio and Lineman Andrew Tudino.

Czepiga is hopeful that his young team will do well this year, with a stronger, faster offensive line.

Senior Liam Butler is the Quarterback; Senior Colin Beaulieu, who wowed fans last year, is one of the top running backs in the league, and we believe he will not disappoint us this year.

Rounding out the most promising players list are Senior Lineman Kyle Wilkens, Senior Running Back Chase Burzynski; Senior lineman Ryan Bedini; Senior Tight End Al Pacelli; and three juniors, Running Back Ryan Sabo; Lineman Luigi Luciani Jr.; and Wide Receiver Matt Weidenfellar.

Former Amity player Ed Choiniere has retired, so Teacher Rob Kennedy will be in the announcers booth.

Come on out to Amity tonight and show the Spartans some love.

The Amity Dance Team, under the direction of a new coach also will be on hand.
