BRISTOL, June 14 – New St. Paul coach Jude Kelly completed 10 days of spring practice with players from St. Paul, Goodwin Tech and Lewis Mills with nearly 40 players. "We had 10 straight days of football and what impressed me the most was the attitude and willingness of the players," Kelly said. "It was important not to get frustrated because we’re starting something here and willing to build it. We have three schools that represent 14 different towns. “
Mills to join program
BURLINGTON, April 16, 2005 -- The CIAC has granted a one-year approval for Lewis Mills to form a tri-op football team with St. Paul and Goodwin Tech.
Seeking a challenge,
Kelly joins St. Paul/GT
BRISTOL, Feb. 8, 2005 – Looking for a challenge, Jude Kelly has turned to the St. Paul/Goodwin Tech football program. The long-time Southington High coach stepped down after 17 years and one Class LL title (1998) with the Blue Knights to become head coach of SP/GT. He also coached East Catholic for nine years and won three state titles (1983, 86, 87).
"It is a quite a change, and quite a new challenge. It was just something I felt in my heart," Kelly told the Waterbury Republican American. I am excited about the challenge and now I feel like I have a bounce in my step. It will be a complete change in systems for me. I will change my whole way of doing things. It will be like starting from scratch for me." Kelly replaces Ben Lee, 22, who resigned for personal reasons earlier this year.
Kelly, 115-62-2 at Southington, has a career record of 176-95-4.
Byrd named to All-Nutmeg team
BRISTOL, Dec. 1 – Kenny Byrd was named to the All-Nutmeg League team in a vote by the league’s coaches. Byrd, a senior, was named to the All-Star team as a defensive back. A two-way player with the Falcons this season, Byrd made his biggest contributions on the offensive side of the ball. He led the team in rushing with 900 yards and 7 TDs. Sophomore lineman David Dronzank was nominated for the All-Nutmeg squad but was not selected.
BRISTOL, Nov. 27 – It wasn’t the effort that was lacking – only the results. For the sixth time in school history and the first time since 1999, the Falcons failed to win a game as RHAM outlasted St. Paul/Goodwin Tech, 34-14 at Muzzy Field Saturday night. “The kids played their hearts out," SPGT coach Ben Lee told the Bristol Press. "They came in and they brought it. RHAM had some really talented receivers and they beat us with good plays." RHAM QB Tyler Ware completed 13-of-22 passes for 192 yards and 3 TDs.
Several first half turnovers and a blocked punt hurt SPGT in the first half. Leading rusher and scorer Kenny Byrd had an 84-yard TD run while Seaver scored on a 5-yard TD pass from Jamel Greenlee. It was the final high school game for Byrd and fellow seniors Justin Gordon, Victor Rodriguez, Tony Rivera and Kyle Abucewicz. "I think we got all I could out of my seniors," said Lee. "It’s going to hurt losing them and their playing ability." RHAM coach Peter Calin complimented the Falcons. "(The Falcons) are a tough team," Calin told the Bristol Press. "They shouldn’t be hanging their heads (after the game)."
BRISTOL, Nov. 24 – Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game with RHAM has been postponed until Saturday at 7 p.m. at Muzzy Field. SPGT players should report on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. "It’s great to have a Thanksgiving Day game," SPGT coach Ben Lee told The Bristol Press. "A family gets together for a traditional meal and that’s how we’re approaching this game, playing football together."
ROCKY HILL, Nov. 15 – Falcon coach Ben Lee saw the warning signs even before his St. Paul/GT players hit the field. "It just didn’t seem like a game day," Lee told the Bristol Press. "We had a good practice (on Friday) getting ready for them. But even on the bus ride here, I sensed the kids were a bit out of it."
Rocky Hill rolled up a school-record 514 yards of total offense and set a team record for most points in a single game with a 58-12 victory. “Everything we did seemed to work," Rocky Hill coach Dave Coyne told The Bristol Press. “Right from the start, we were able to take it to them. We controlled the game and it just went from there."
It was the sixth time in nine games that the Falcons have been beaten by 38 points or more. "We knew how they would come at us, in the jumbo package and (block) tightly together," Lee said. "But for some reason we didn’t come to play. Just a lot of poor execution on our part. And there’s no excuse for that." Kenny Byrd, who had a team-high 116 yards rushing, had a 57-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Byrd also tossed a 51-yard TD pass to Jamel Greenlee.
Rocky Hill game now on Monday on the road
BRISTOL, Nov. 13 – This weekend’s snow cost the St. Paul/Goodwin Tech a home game. Saturday night’s game with Rocky Hill at Muzzy Field has been postponed to Monday night at Rocky Hill beginning at 6:30 p.m. St. Paul lost the home field because Bristol Eastern’s game on Friday against Maloney was snowed out and moved to Monday.
BRISTOL, Nov. 6 – No player is above the rules as several players found out on the St. Paul/Goodwin Tech squad on Saturday night. A few starters missed practices during the week. They found that they missed the first half of the 48-0 loss to undefeated East Catholic/Cheney Tech at Muzzy Field.
"We had a few key players who decided to miss a few practices this week and we held them out in the first half,” first-year SP/GT coach Ben Lee told The Herald Press. “We decided that we’re going to go with the players who are there every day. Hopefully we learned that the guys who show up for practice are going to play. We started eight sophomores and a freshman tonight and overall the younger guys played well. We were just outmatched by a very strong East Catholic team."
SP/GT finished with only 67 yards of offense including 32 yards on a pass from Jamal Greenlee to Kenny Byrd late in the fourth quarter. East Catholic rolled behind QB Dan Belli, who ran for 106 yards and 3 TDs while throwing another TD pass. He had 93 rushing yards in the first quarter. Byrd led the Falcons with 31 yards on 11 carries.
With the win, East Catholic went home with the Father Robert Sanders Trophy, given in memory of the man who was affiliated with both schools during his long career in Catholic education.
ENFIELD, Oct. 30 – It took three quarters, a 26-point deficit and a fight before the Falcons showed some life. But by then, it was far too late. Enfield prevailed in a battle of winless teams with a 36-14 victory. Players scuffed on the field as the third quarter closed. The coaching staffs from both teams quickly extinguished the fight. “We seemed more ready to play after the fight,” St. Paul coach Ben Lee told The Herald Press. “Our players have to come ready to play – not fight to get themselves going.”
Kenny Byrd led the Falcons (0-7) with a game-high 142 yards and 2 TDs. But outside of a safety and some booming punts from Kyle Abucewicz, the Falcons showed little in the first half, trailing 28-2 at the break. A fumble recovery, interception and botched kickoff return by the Falcons helped Enfield (1-6) outscore St. Paul 22-0 in the second quarter.
"We’ve talked all season about how you practice is how you’re going to play in a game and the last couple of days of practice, our guys weren’t serious at all," Lee said.
Inglis carries Vinal Tech past Falcons
MIDDLETOWN, Oct. 22 – Antonio Inglis broke his own school record with 278 yards rushing on 22 carries and scored 4 TDs to lead Vinal Tech/Coginchaug to a 41-24 win over winless St. Paul/Goodwin Tech Friday night at Palmer Field. "He’s just a very good football player who loves to play the game. It’s hard to believe that someone his size can run so hard between the tackles,” Vinal coach Bob McNamara said. SPGT’s Jamal Greenlee scored two TDs while Kenny Byrd (18-156) scored a TD on a 79 kickoff return. The Falcons led 16-13 in the second quarter only to see the Hawks score 28 unanswered points.
"We moved the ball well on offense," St. Paul coach Ben Lee told the Middletown Press. "But we broke down on defense. Our execution on defense wasn’t there and we certainly couldn’t stop Inglis." Byrd also completed 6-of-16 passes for 73 yards. "Kenny Byrd is an outstanding football player," said McNamara. "And I thought St. Paul played their guts out tonight." The Falcons had 150 yards rushing and 162 yards passing.
n Kyle Abucewicz set a new co-op single game record with 8 catches for 109 yards.
BRISTOL, Oct. 16 -- The host Falcons came up with two big plays to spark a pair of touchdown scores but undefeated Farmington (4-0) rolled to a dominating 52-12 win at Muzzy Field. Punishing back Nick Bliss galloped for a game-high 307 yards and six touchdowns on 24 carries. Defensively, Farmington had three sacks, an interception, fumble recovery and four tackles for losses. SPGT cut the lead to eight, 14-6, with 10 minutes left in the second quarter but Bliss scored TDs on Farmington’s next three possessions (21, 17, 35 yards).
St. Paul (0-5) got in position to score its first touchdown when Derek Chard recovered a fumble after Farmington QB Steve Harrington was hit in the backfield. Brent Seaver ran inside 19 yards to the two-yard line. On fourth-and-goal from the five, SPGT quarterback Jamel Greenlee scored on a naked bootleg. On its first play of the second half, SPGT scored on a 74-yard pass down the right sideline from Kenny Byrd to Jamel Greenlee. It was the longest scoring pass since St. Paul began its co-op with Goodwin Tech in 2000.
“As a team, we played exceptionally well,” SPGT coach Ben Lee said. “Farmington just overpowered us and outskilled us. It was probably the best game we’ve played this year.”
BRISTOL, Oct. 15 – The Falcons will retire No. 23 in honor of former captain Rob Williams, 19, who was shot and killed outside a convenience store in Hartford last weekend. Police think that Williams was shot and killed in an early morning robbery attempt. Williams, a 2003 Goodwin Tech graduate, played with SPGT for three years (2000-02) and was a captain during his senior year.
BRISTOL, Oct. 9 – Strong running from QB Shamar Carr lifted Middletown to an easy 63-14 win at Muzzy Field in the home opener for St. Paul/Goodwin Tech. Carr scored on a 42-yard run and had a 68-yard run that set up another second quarter TD as the Dragons built a 20-8 edge. A 68-yard run by Carr set up Middletown’s third TD. Korey Speller scored three TDs for Middletown including punt returns of 60 and 77 yards.
St. Paul/GT had its first lead of the year (8-6) when the Falcons went ahead on a 40-yard run by Kenny Byrd in the first quarter. St. Paul/GT converted on a 4th and 3 to keep the driving alive. Down by 14, St. Paul drove to the Dragon five late in the second quarter but couldn’t score. "Our goal was to come out hard and play hard," St. Paul/GT coach Ben Lee told the Bristol Press. "We came out in the first half and we played as hard as I’ve seen all season. That was our goal -- come out hard and play strong. Week in and week out, we’re are making strides and improving every week."
BERLIN, Oct. 1 – An overmatched Falcon squad dropped a 56-8 decision to Berlin Friday night at Scalise Field but St. Paul/GT scored its first points of the season. Kenny Byrd scored on a 2-yard run with 4:51 remaining and J.P. Jacobsen hit Mark Duggins for the two-point conversion. “Our goal for the second half was to score,” St. Paul/GT coach Ben Lee told The New Britain Herald. “But I’m most pleased that we played together and fought together. Those are steps we need to take.” Berlin’s Chris Laroche scored 4 TDs on a 85-yard pass reception, a 24-yard and 1-yard run and a 60-yard punt return for the Redcoats, who led 49-0 at halftime.
Byrd had a 81-yard TD run called back due to a penalty. He did have a 52-yard run that set up the Falcons’ score. Byrd rushed for a team-high 132 yards on 18 carries.
WEST HARTFORD, Sept. 25 – Game two was a tough one for the Falcons to absorb as N.W. Catholic QB Mike Sarnese completed 11 of 18 passes for 251 yards and three TDs to lead the Indians past St. Paul/GT, 38-0. Justin Jarvis was 5-175 with all 3 TDs. “Our young guys will only get better," SP/GT coach Benjamin Lee told The Herald Press. "So will the team as everyone gains more experience. But we need to play with the same intensity as Northwest did. That’s something our players learned today. St. Paul/GT’s Kenny Byrd had a 24-yard fumble return but the Falcons advanced into NWC territory only three times in the game.
PLAINVILLE, Sept. 20 – A quick 52-second scoring drive at the beginning of the game was the difference as Plainville spoiled the season opener for St. Paul/GT, 10-0. Plainville capped off a four-play, 65-yard drive on a 34-yard TD run by TC Scott (24-123). St. Paul recovered three Plainville fumbles in the first half and Kenny Byrd picked off a pass to stay in the game. But the Falcons could only muster 107 yards of offense. Byrd returned the second half kickoff 42 yards to the Plainville 36 but the drive stalled.
"We’re pretty young on offense," St. Paul’s rookie head Ben Lee told The New Britain Herald. "We have 10 new starters." Late in the fourth quarter, Plainville added an insurance safety when the snap sailed over the head of punter Kyle Abucewicz, who stepped out of bounds trying to recover the ball. QB Jamel Greenlee led the Falcons with 45 yards on the ground.
Opener postponed to Monday night
PLAINVILLE, Sept. 17 – St. Paul/Goodwin Tech’s season opening game against Plainville was postponed Friday night due to the threat of rain and not to damage the PHS field. The game will be played Monday at 7 p.m. at Plainville. A walk-through in full uniform for all SP/GT players will be Monday at 3:15 p.m. with the bus leaving at 5:30 p.m. for the game. Players with questions should call coach Lee.
Falcons name captains for 2004 campaign
BRISTOL, Sept. 13 – Seniors Justin Gordon, Victor Rodriguez and Kyle Abusewicz have been named team captains for the 2004 St. Paul/Goodwin Tech football team. "These guys have displayed leadership skills on and off the field, they really deserve this honor," SP/GT head coach Benjamin Lee said.

SMSA hands Falcons loss in exhibition finale
BRISTOL, Sept. 10 – The Falcons closed out the exhibition season with a 32-24 loss to Sports and Medical Sciences Academy (SMSA). The visitors took advantage of a pair of St. Paul turnovers in the first half to take a 16-0 lead. SP/GT rallied in the second half with a pair of TD runs from Jamel Greenlee (49, 23 yards). But SMSA took advantage of three SP/GT turnovers and the Falcons were slowed by six penalties for 80 yards.
“We have a very young team this year and to be competitive, we need to eliminate the mental errors and be more disciplined,” SP/GT head coach Benjamin Lee said. “This was a good wakeup call for us as a team.” SP/GT closed out the exhibition season at 2-1.
Exhibition game 2
