Today at 4 p.m. the Amity Spartans boys Ice Hockey team will face perhaps their toughest (and most evenly matched) opponents to date – the Daniel Hand Tigers at the Northford Ice Pavillion.

While other press dwells on the idea that Amity lost three consecutive games Orange Live sticks with other, more important facts:

1) The 2018-19 Spartans are an extremely talented team.

2) Since day-one of practice, they have acted like family.

3) They won their first 7 games of the season, against teams that some said would crush them.

4) They are blessed to have a phenomenal head coach that is well respected by other coaches for his methods and experience.

5) They have a great coaching team.

6) The Spartans have the speed and skill to play well against any opponent and their fans – including the Amity Army – and I believe in each and every one of them 100%.

NOTE: Hey boys, you CAN clip the Tigers’ claws and own this game. Stay out of the penalty box and out on the ice where you’re needed. My slogan for you this year is “Just Believe.” Coach Scooter Richetelli said it early on, and if you believe you can, then you can.

The Amity Spartans faced off against the North Haven Indians in North Haven on Saturday, Jan. 5.

It took a while for the first goal to sink into the net and that was 9 minutes in by Amity Senior Captain Jason Csejka, assisted by Caleb Marcin and Nelson Bordeleau.

Six minutes later, North Haven’s Donny Funaro tied the game, assisted by Domenic Biondi.

In the second period, Csejka struck again at 10:48, assisted by Cody White, pulling the Spartans to a 2-1 lead.

After returning to the ice, the Spartans wasted no time finding the net again – and it was a hat trick for Csejka, assisted by Connor Bath and Bordeleau.

Amity wrapped up the game with 5:07 remaining with a goal by Ryan Miller, assisted by Nick Kiwanis.

This was a sweet victory for the Spartans, marking their sixth consecutive win.

Records: Amity 6-0, North Haven 1-1-5

Next Up: On Wednesday, Jan. 9, the Spartans will be at Bennett Rink in West Haven for a duel with Notre Dame-West Haven (4-3), which just had a big win against Fairfield Prep in Overtime. Notre Dame is NOT going to want to lose to Amity. This will be the toughest match-up to date.

Bennett Rink is the home ice for both teams, but on Wednesday, Amity will be the visitor.

Remember what Coach Scooter Richetelli said, “Just Believe.”

I Believe our boys can do this! Of all the teams on the Spartans game Roster, Amity is the ONLY one that is undefeated.
