The last time these two teams met was just two weeks ago on Feb. 24, which was Amity’s “Senior Day” Game. Watertown won 6-1, and with that fresh on their minds, the Spartans will be ready for battle and hungry for a victory as they edge their way to the championship title.
NOTE: Ever since their first scrimmage, I’ve been telling Coach Mike Richetelli that these boys were going to the Championship game. Come on Amity, do what I KNOW you can do. stay focused and play hard. and remember DEFENSE! Best of Luck Boys.
