The Amity/North Haven/ Cheshire coop team (known as the Blades) played a scrimmage game against Hall/Conard at Veterans Rink in West Hartford on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

We’ve come to know the Blades as nearly unbeatable in past years, but new season, new team, you can never tell how things will go.

Last night wasn’t their night, they lost to Hall/Conard 5-2.  The good news is that as a scrimmage, it doesn’t reflect on their season record either, and these girls have a long way to go until the end of the season. There are several familiar names still on the roster too.

Here’s how the game went last night.

First Period

Hall/Conard’s Nikki Herz scored the first goal off an assist from Luci Alissi.

Score 1-0 HC

Second Period

Our Blades’ Andrea DelVecchio tied the game off an assist from Shannon Reilly.

HC’s Maya Borden made an unassisted goal. Then, Abby Goncalves scored, assisted by Gracie Cho.

Score 3-1 HC

Third Period

Out of the gate, the Blades’ Meaghan Hogan scored on an assist from Tess Csejka.

HC forged ahead with an unassisted goal by Liv Fernandez, followed by the winning goal by Claire Ittleson, assisted by Nikki Herz.

Final Score 5-2 Hall/Conard

The Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) Girls Hockey team had a phenomenal season with only a handful of losses in a very demanding schedule, this talented group of athletes always played to win.

They made it all the way to the SCC South Division Semifinal on Wednesday night when they went up against Hamden.

The First Period was all Blades, the way we like it, with Cally Dixon scoring off an assist from Megan Spring.

Then Shannon Reilly made an unassisted goal, putting our girls in a nice 2-0 lead for two full periods.

Then came the third period when Hamden sought its revenge in the form of Demeri Carangelo.

Carangelo made a goal off an assist from Taylor Klesyk, then the tied the game, assisted by Maggie Gould and Megan McKiernab.

With that, the game went into overtime, but no one scored, forcing a second overtime.

Sadly for our solid, hard-working girls, Hamden’s Maggie Gould made an unassisted goal, securing the win for the Green Dragons and their advancement in the SCC Tournament.

Wait! It’s not over yet! The State Tournaments start next week and the Blades will play against Hand on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m. at the Rinks in Shelton.

NOTE: We are so proud of you girls for your excellent work this year. Your passion, sportsmanship, and teamwork are top notch. You’ve beaten Hand twice this month 3-2 and 5-3 You CAN do it again!

Congratulations to Coach John Peschell on a great season. GO BLADES!

Girl’s Hockey: Meet The Blades

The Amity-Cheshire-North Haven girls’ hockey team the “Blades” are off to a wonderful season start, with a 3-0 record so far.

Half of the players are from Amity High School (shown below in bold). An Amity parent provided me with the roster and with a little extra digging I was able to fill in some of the blanks as to which grades and schools the players are from. (additional information to complete it would be appreciated)

Once again, Boys Hockey is exciting, fast and filled with amazingly skilled athletes, and they get a lot of attention. But the girls team mirrors them, and sometimes even seem better (ask the parents).

The Blades’ home ice is the Rinks at Shelton in the Sports Center Complex at 784 River Rd, Shelton.

If you have a chance to see them this season, take it! These girls are amazing.

Look at this video of Amity’s Grace Kosh making a goal. (Don’t blink, you may miss it)
