The Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) girls ice hockey team welcomed Guilford at Hamden on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m.

After a season-starting dry spell, the Blades have been playing strong during the past few games and demonstrating all of the crowd-pleasing skills we’d grown accustomed to in past years.

The Blades owned the first period with Tess Csjeka showing them how it’s done. Her first goal was assisted by Andrea DelVecchio; a second was unassisted and the third — Hat Trick — was assisted by Carsyn Rizzuti and Ilana Laynar.

First Period Score – 3-0 Blades

The second period also was dominated by the Blades. Mia Dow scored the first goal, assisted by Nadia DiNatale. Guilford made a move with Daniella Vickerman getting the Indians up on the scoreboard, assisted by Jacquelyn Violette.

DelVecchio scored for the Blades, assisted by Caroline Cadelina, followed by a Haley Cable goal, assisted by Csejka.

Second Period Score – 6-1 Blades

The Blades came out looking sharp in the third period as well. Shannon Reilly got one past the Indian’s goalie, Julia McDonald, assisted by Cable and DelVecchio.

Guilford answered with a goal by Violette, assisted by Vickerman.

Final Score – 7-2 Blades

Saves: Caitlyn Ranciato made 9 stops for the Blades; McDonald made 23 saves for the Indians.

At the beginning of the winter season, it appeared that the Blades girls hockey team had lost their edge.

After being spoiled by several nearly flawless years of gameplay, fans noticed that the girls couldn’t seem to catch a break. Their record was 0-6 on Dec. 28. 

But things began to turn around after the ball dropped in 2019. First, the Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) defeated Branford 8-3 on Jan. 2; then Daniel Hand 5-4 on Jan. 5; and most recently Mask 7-4 on Jan. 6.

The Blades were on the road in Shelton on Sunday against Masuk. 

The old Blades showed through on their former home ice, owning the first period. The goals came one after another at a dizzying pace. Haley Cable got things rolling with the first goal, assisted by Sara Cable; then, with 2:52 remaining, Nadia DiNatale shot one past Mask’s goalie, assisted by Tess Csejka; and 13 seconds later Andrea DelVecchio made an unassisted goal; within 10 seconds, DelVecchio assisted Mia Dow on her goal; and wrapping up the period, DiNatale posted her second goal assisted by Meaghan Hogan. 

First Period Score: 5-0 Blades 

Masuk fought back in the second period, Mackenzie Cambra scored the first goal 5:11 after returning to the ice, assisted by Cathryn Gregory and Christina Moniz; 37 seconds later Gregory made a goal, assisted by Erin Webdale. 

With just 59:3 remaining in the period, Masuk posted another goal (player information not provided)

Csejka added another point for the Blades unassisted at 36.1. 

Second Period Score: 6-3 Blades

Twelve minutes passed in the third period before DiNatale got a hat trick when she scored for the Blades on an assist from Hannah Sosensky.

With only 31.5 seconds remaining in the game, Webdale made the final goal assisted by Mari Bischoff and Gregory. 

Final Score 7-4 Blades

Blades goalie Caitlyn Ranciato made 22 Saves

Next Up for the Blades a match up against Hamden at the Lou Astorino Ice Rink in Hamden at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12.
