catch me if you can
The Amity Spartans Football Team has a lot of talent, no matter what the haters say.
When they win, they usually win big: 48-13 vs Sheehan; 49-19 vs Lyman Hall; 24-7 vs Wilbur Cross and the first win of the season a close one vs Seymour 24-21.
Spartan Fans have seen a few hard losses this year too: 49-30 vs Shelton; 42-28 vs Xavier; 46-33 vs Fairfield Prep, but even so, they weren’t slaughtered by these top teams and held their own and haven’t allowed themselves to be blanked by any opponents.
In the past couple of games, Prep and Cheshire (both away games) the Spartans suffered incomplete passes and interceptions by their opponents, which, along with several great plays by the other teams, left them behind in the third quarter and rallying hard, but unable to get ahead in the fourth.
You Can get a good man down. Choiniere is stopped.
