After a promising start to the season, the Amity Spartans Hockey team felt a couple of blows this week. On Saturday, Feb. 20, the game matchup between Amity and Cheshire was changed with North Branford coming to West Haven’s Edward Bennett Rink instead.

North Branford brought their “A” game, taking no prisoners and breezing through every period like they owned the ice.

In the first period, the Thunderbirds’ Max Maisano (18) got a solo shot past Amity goalie Branden Smith at just 4:32.

Second Period

The Spartans put their game faces on and with just 3:28 left in the period, David Brown (17) tied the game on an assist from Dylan Gherlone (15).

Score 1-1

Third Period

The tie didn’t last long. Just 20 seconds after returning to the ice, North Branford’s Ryan Michonski (15) scored off an assist from Nick Poulin (11). 36 seconds later, Collin Augur (12), assisted by Aidan Stoner (3), and Jake Pedersen (17) pulled the Thunderbirds to an even more comfortable 3-1 lead.

At 4:21, Joe Marra (24), assisted by Maisano (18) added another point to the game. 4-1

But it wasn’t over yet, 6:48 into the final period Amity’s Justin Miller (4), made the Spartan’s second goal, assisted by Kyle Hummel (18), and Jason Dittmann (21). 4-2

With 5:09 to go, North Branford’s Pedersen (17), assisted by Maisano (18), and Dakota Cooper (28) widened the spread 5-2.

As Amity’s parents’ hope sunk, suddenly, Niko Tournas (26), made a shot on Ethan Moffett’s (9) assistance in the last two minutes of the game.

Score 5-3 – Something can still happen!

What did happen was the Thunderbirds’ Maisano (18) got one last one past Smith with just 1:42 remaining and that’s all she wrote. North Branford won this one 6-3. No apologies, No excuses. They simply played to win.

Next Up for the Spartans, an AWAY game vs North Haven at the Northford Ice Pavillion – Red on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 3:50 p.m.

PS My boys still have a lot of potential and they CAN turn this around.
