Benjamin Iwaszkiewicz’s third quarter touchdown rush was the difference in Amity’s win over Newington.
Iwaszkiewicz took it himself and scampered in from three yards out late in the third quarter scoring the lone touchdown in the Spartans’ 7-3 win.
Coming off a loss to Simsbury last week the Spartans were excited after their hard fought win.
“We came off a tough week last week and the kids just worked so hard,” Amity coach Craig Bruno said. “It’s always hard coming back from a loss, that’s a really good football team andI just thought that we played as hard as we possibly could.”
The Spartans defense was called upon to step up late in the game and both times they held on, led by senior Joe DiGello.
“This is what we’ve been working for all game,” DiGello said. “Someone had to make a play, we stepped up, we had big plays all game and it came down to the wire.
