After having only one win in the last 10 games, Amity really needed to ace this one.
Just 42 seconds after entering the ice Justin Miller made a goal, assisted by Jason Csejka and Nelson Bordeleau..
Tri-town answered with a goal at 9:49.
Less than a minute later Amity’s Csejka broke the tie, assisted by Cody White and Bordeleau.
First-Period Score: 2-1 Amity
Tri-town came back to the ice, sticks ablaze and broke the tie in 1:16.
Amity shot back 5 minutes later, taking back the lead with a goal by Colin Hughes, assisted by Ryan Miller.
Second-Period Score: 3-2 Amity
Nearly 109 minutes of game-play took place before anyone scored in the third period. That was Nick Kiwanis, assisted by Dylan Raver and Kenny Page.
Having Amity keep the lead for so long was too much for Tri-town and they fought back. Less than a minute later they added a point to the score, narrowing Amity’s lead to one point.
With the clock ticking down, Tri-town struck again with just 1:15 remaining, they tied it up.
The Spartans continued to shoot at goal, and with just 17 seconds left, Csejka broke the tie with the winning goal, assisted by Bordeleau and Caleb Marcin.
Final Score: 5-4 Amity
Are the Spartans back on goal? We certainly hope so. With just two games left to the regular season then Tournament play coming up next month, they need to rediscover that winning spirit they possessed at the beginning of the season.
You boys can do this! Just listen to the coach and remember everything you did in practice and apply it during the games. You can shock all the nay-sayers and take home all the marbles! WE Know You CAN!
