WEST HAVEN \u2014 Adam Shea takes his role as captain of the Amity hockey team seriously. With the Spartans playing less than their best game through two periods, it is no surprise the Spartans turned to the senior leader. Scoring three times in the third period within a span of 3 minutes, 35 seconds, Shea helped lead the Spartans to a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over Milford Wednesday at the Edward L. Bennett Rink. \u201cI feel as a captain, I have to be a leader,\u201d said Shea, who finished with four goals as Amity improved to 4-2. \u201cIt is just not being vocal. It is leading on the ice as well. I love the opportunity to help my team. This is a big win for us.\u201d Trailing 4-2 after Milford\u2019s Will Vitelli scored with 8:09 remaining in the third period, Shea went to work. Just 1:09 after Vitelli\u2019s goal, Shea gave the Spartans some confidence with his goal from in front past Milford goaltender Noah Ericson. Just 1minute later, the game was even at 4 when Shea\u2019s shot from the left side eluded Ericson with 6 minutes to go. After Milford (1-4-1) tried to slow the Spartans down with a timeout, Shea was at it again. On a perfect give-and-go with Keating Seymour, he quickly knocked the puck past Ericson to give Amity the lead for good with 3:25 remaining. \u201cWhat can you say about him?\u201d Amity assistant coach Mike Richetelli said. \u201cHe is the top player on the team and one of the top players in the state. He knows when he has to put the team on his back. \u201cHe knows when to take the shot and when to pass. He is by no means selfish. But, he understands we need him to put the puck in the net.\u201d While Shea\u2019s three goals late in the third period were decisive, it was a pass he made to Brett McNeil that turned the game around. With Amity on the power play, Shea quickly found McNeil, who beat Ericson to cut the Amity deficit to 3-2 with 9:40 remaining in the final period. \u201cI feel like we can handle anything that is thrown at us,\u201d Shea said. \u201cWe were able to come back. We did not play our best game in the first two periods. We knew we had to pick it up early.\u201d Amity nearly dug a hole it could not climb out of as the Indians took a 3-1 lead just 17 seconds into the third period. Zach White recorded the hat trick when he took a pass from Jonathan DePascale and beat Amity goaltender Brian Mosher on a breakaway for a shorthanded goal. \u201cWe had them,\u201d Milford coach Sal Follo said. \u201cWe hit the post and we had opportunities. We knew they were a good team. They came back against Cheshire and scored three goals in 40 seconds. \u201cWe knew they weren\u2019t going to back down. It was a good performance by us if you take away that lull. That lull killed us. We were right there with them.\u201d After a scoreless first period, Milford took a 1-0 lead when Jarrod Butts set up White for a breakaway goal with 7:58 left in the middle period. Amity needed just 18 seconds to respond as Zach Shelnitz and Seymour set up Shea for the equalizer. \u201cThis team is resilient,\u201d Richetelli said. \u201cThey never stop. We did not play our best in the first two periods and they knew it. They responded in the third period.\u201d Milford took a 2-1 lead with 2:50 remaining in the second period. While falling to the ice, White beat Mosher, setting up the dramatic third period. Seymour finished with three assists for the Spartans and McNeil added a goal and an assist. Mosher played well in goal for Amity. He finished with 25 saves, including 19 in the final two periods. \u201cBrian Mosher was amazing again,\u201d Richetelli said. \u201cHe did a heck of a job. As a senior, he is taking the bull by the horns. He made some huge saves to keep us in the game.\u201d Ericson made 29 saves for Milford. DePascale finished with three assists for the Indians.
