Following a mind-blowing start to the season, the Amity Boys Hockey Team went from unbeatable to maybe they will, maybe they won’t.

Last week, at 5-5, Amity went into overtime with North Branford in a nail-biter of a game. They lost, and no one was really thrilled about it, but we still stand by our team, knowing how GREAT they CAN be, and that tournament play is right around the corner.

Last Saturday, when the Spartans played the Cheshire Rams at Wesleyan U. The first period remained scoreless until 16 seconds before the buzzer, when the Rams got one past Malachi Zurolo.

First Period Score: 1-0 Cheshire.

Amity showed that skill and spirit we’ve come to know and love within just 1:04 after returning to the ice and 6 tied the game on an assist from 10.

Just a minute later, 8 pulled the Spartans ahead on an assist from 14, and that was it for the second period.

Score: 2-1 Amity

Cheshire was determined in the third period and tied the game after only 2:30 had passed.

Tie 2-2 end of three and on to overtime.

With 8 minutes in which to show the other team how it’s done, there’s always a battle in overtime.

Unfortunately, the Rams netted the puck at 5:12 and won this one.

Final Score: 3-2 Cheshire.
