Derby vote makes St. Paul admission to NVL official
DERBY, Dec. 23 – St. Paul’s admission to the Naugatuck Valley League was made official on Monday night when the Derby Board of Education voted, 7-0, to support Derby’s move into the NVL. St. Paul’s admission was contingent upon Derby because the NVL wanted two schools to join the league, not one. Both schools will join the NVL in the fall. St. Paul is slated to join the NVL’s Copper Division in football with Woodland Regional, Holy Cross, Naugatuck, Kennedy, Torrington and Sacred Heart.
WATERBURY, Dec. 16 – St. Paul will be playing in the Naugatuck Valley League next fall, the Waterbury Republican American reported this morning. The Falcons and Derby were invited to play in the NVL beginning next fall. Derby’s Board of Education still has to approve the move but St. Paul has already accepted the application. St. Paul and Enfield reportedly had also applied to play in the Pequot Conference.
Seven Falcons named to All-Nutmeg team
BRISTOL, Dec. 9 – Six Falcons made the All-Nutmeg team for their performance this fall on the field for St. Paul. QB Brian Kaczynski, S Rob Cannata, LB Anthony Cerreta, WR Bryon Jones, WR Ryan Moore, RB Marcus Aiken and LB Kyle Supinski were all honored.
Kaczynski (QB) and Moore (WR) were named to the All-Courant offensive team for the 71 towns that the paper covers. Aiken (RB) received honorable mention honors.
Kaczynski leads Falcons to ninth win, ties record
MERIDEN, Nov. 26 – QB Brian Kaczynski threw 3 TD passes to tie a state record for most TD passes in a single season as the Falcons completed a stellar campaign with a 46-6 win over Wilcox Tech on Thanksgiving Eve at Falcon Field. Kaczynski threw all 3 TD passes to Ryan Moore (47, 9, 1) and has 36 TD passes on the season, tying him with Southington’s Dan Bruetsch who also threw 36 TDs in 2000.
The Falcons (9-2) finished with nine wins, the most since 1976 when they were 10-1. Running back Marcus Aiken rushed for 111 yards to finish with 1,097 yards rushing for the season. He also had a 66-yard interception return for a TD and 1 yard TD run to finish with 20 TDs.
St. Paul head coach Jude Kelly credited the nine seniors, the first class to go through the program with Kelly, for much of the team's succes. "Everything goes back to these seniors. They’re a very special group. They’ve just been fantastic," Kelly told the Bristol Press. "These kids have always done the right thing [both on and off the field]. That’s something that I’ve told them so many times since they got here as freshman; that if they do the right things they would ultimately be successful in the end. It’s nice to see that come true for them."
The following day, Crosby's David Gondek threw 4 TD passes in a 44-38 win over Kennedy to set a new single season TD record of 39.
Mature move by Kaczynski:Writer Roger Cleavland in the Republican American reported that Brian Kaczynski was initially upset that he didn't get a chance to break the state record for most TD passes in a season. But he praised the Goodwin Tech senior for taking the time to regain his composure before speaking with the media. St. Paul coach Jude Kelly defended not going for the record. “The game is bigger than any one of us individually,” Kelly told Cleavland. “To throw a pass later in the game when you are up several scores to try to break a record ... the bottom line is the game comes first.”
STAFFORD, Nov. 21 – St. Paul’s flickering CIAC playoff hopes were extinguished Friday night when Avon (9-2) beat Stafford, 53-14 to clinch the fourth and final spot in the Class M playoffs. Avon joins defending Class M champion Ledyard, newly-crowned Southwest Conference champion Brookfield and Constitution State Conference champion Cheney Tech in the four-team field.
Ledyard win hurts Falcons playoff hopes
LEDYARD, Nov. 20 – St. Paul’s chances to qualify for the Class M tournament were dealt a huge blow on Thursday night when No. 3 Ledyard earned a convincing 27-6 win over No. 1 New London to clinch a spot in the Class M playoffs. The only way for St. Paul to qualify is for Avon (8-2) to lose to Stafford (2-8) on Friday night combined with a St. Paul victory over Wilcox Tech on Thanksgiving.
Records for Kaczynski
BRISTOL, Nov. 19 – It’s been a record-breaking season and career for Falcon QB Brian Kaczynski, who has thrown 50 TD passes in his high school career.
BRISTOL, Nov. 16 – The Falcons remained alive for their first CIAC playoff berth since 1976 with a dominating 42-21 win over RHAM in their final Nutmeg League contest. The league will disband at the end of the year. Ryan Moore (3-127) scored 3 TDs for St. Paul (8-2, 6-2 Nutmeg) catching a pair of TD passes from Brian Kaczynski and scooping up a fumble and running 59 yards for the score. Kaczynski passed for 176 yards and 3 TDs.
Eight wins in a single season is the most since St. Paul went 10-0 in 1976, when they qualified for the Class M championship game
St. Paul must beat Wilcox Tech on Thanksgiving and get some help to qualify for the Class M playoffs. It is unlikely that Stafford (2-8) will beat Avon next Friday. The Falcons need New London to beat Ledyard because a win by the Colonials over the undefeated Whalers would give them a spot over St. Paul. Brookfield (8-1, 1140, 126), Cheney Tech (9-0, 1100, 122), Ledyard (7-2, 1010, 112) and Avon (8-2, 1100, 110) are currently ahead of St. Paul (8-2, 1010, 101).
If Ledyard loses to New London and beats Fitch on Thanksgiving and St. Paul beats Wilcox, the playoff spot could come down to bonus points – wins by teams that the teams beat earlier in the year.
Berlin defeat helps St. Paul's playoff chances
WEST HARTFORD, Nov. 15 – St. Paul’s chances for a CIAC playoff berth improved with Berlin’s 8-6 loss to Northwest Catholic on Saturday morning. The Falcons moved up to No. 5 in the Class M rankings with the top four earning playoff berths. St. Paul needs to win its final two games over RHAM and Wilcox Tech and hope that either Avon or Ledyard loses a game to allow St. Paul to move up.
Avon (7-2) faces Morgan Sunday and closes the regular season at Stafford while Ledyard (7-2) has games left with New London (9-0) and Fitch.
Falcons fall short in epic shootout with Berlin, 64-50
BERLIN, Nov. 7 – The Falcons could never quite catch Berlin Friday night in an epic shootout at Sage Park. Berlin and St. Paul combined for 114 points, the fifth highest amount of points in modern state high school history as Berlin outlasted the Falcons, 64-50 in a key Nutmeg Conference battle.
Berlin’s Max DeLorenzo turned in the second-highest rushing performance in school history, racing for 264 yards and 5 TDs on 27 carries. He had 151 yards and 3 TDs in the first quarter. His 5 TDs and 30 points tied a Berlin school record.
Berlin led 22-6 after one quarter but the Falcons rallied with a 10-yard run from Marcus Aiken and a pair of TD passes from Brian Kaczynski to cut the lead to two at halftime, 28-26. Kaczynski completed 19 of 30 passes for 334 yards and a co-op record 5 TD passes.
But Berlin scored four TDs in the third quarter on a pair of runs, a pass and a 40-yard interception return to open up a 52-34 lead. "It’s tough because you practice all week focusing on stopping their run and to not be able to do it right from the start is difficult," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told The Bristol Press. Losing cornerback Rob Cannata to a knee injury and defensive lineman Anthony Cerreta during the game didn’t help. "It was a factor but all the credit has to go to Berlin. That’s a good football team," Kelly said. Kaczynski's 19 completions was a co-op record.
PLAYOFF HUNT: With the loss, St. Paul slipped to No. 6 in the CIAC’s Class M playoff rankings. The top four earn a spot in the playoffs. Avon (7-2) is ranked at No. 4 with an average of 106.67 with Berlin at No. 5 with an average of 105 points. St. Paul has an average of 97.78.
St. Paul needs to win its final two games and needs some help. They will need Avon to lose to either Morgan (3-5) or Stafford (1-7) and have No. 3 Ledyard (7-2, 107.78) fall to undefeated New London (8-0) or Fitch (1-7). Berlin (6-2) has games remaining with N.W. Catholic (6-2) and Windham (4-4) and another loss by Berlin would be helpful for the Falcons. St. Paul is looking for its first CIAC playoff berth since 1976.
BRISTOL, Nov. 1 – The Falcons sprinted out to a 27-0 lead, withstood a third quarter rally by Middletown and earned their seventh victory of the season with a 40-21 win Saturday at the high school. "I was very impressed with the kids right off the bat," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told The Herald Press. "They came to play today both defensively and offensively. We got up big (27-0) at halftime so we went into halftime trying to maintain their emotions and things.”
QB Brian Kaczynski completed 13 of 20 passes for 280 yards and 4 TDs. In the first half, he threw a pair of TD passes to Marcus Aiken (5-76 receiving) and a third to Bryon Jones. Aiken rushed for a game-high 178 yards on 23 carries.
"I was very, very pleased with the effort of our kids," Kelly said. "We had some kids that got bumped up a little bit and played through some pain. I was real, real proud of them." Next up for St. Paul is the stiffest challenge left in the regular season – Berlin on the road Friday night at Sage Park.
BRISTOL, Nov. 2 – St. Paul remains in command of its own destiny in the quest for its first CIAC playoff berth since 1976. The Falcons moved up one spot to No. 3 in the CIAC’s Class M playoff rankings on Saturday with a 40-21 win over Middletown. Brookfield is ranked No. 1 and Cheney Tech remains at No. 2 after an easy win over Plainville. Ledyard and Avon are tied for the No. 4 spot but Ledyard currently holds a tiebreaker edge, 84-82, for the last playoff spot.
Berlin blew a 24-point lead in the fourth quarter and lost on the road to Enfield, 52-50 and fell from No. 3 to No. 7 in the rankings. Berlin broke a 40-year-old state record for largest blown lead, snapping the old mark of 22 points by New London on Nov. 16, 1968. New London led Norwich Free Academy, 25-3, fell behind 33-31 but rallied for a 37-33 victory.
The biggest challenge left on the schedule for the Falcons is Friday’s game at Berlin (6-2).
ROCKY HILL, Oct. 24 – The Falcons had a difficult time stopping the hard-driving running game of Rocky Hill in a 39-27 loss Friday night at McVicar Field. Rocky Hill (6-1, 5-1 Nutmeg) ran for 452 yards and 5 TDs. “We couldn’t stop their running game,” St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Hartford Courant. “If were able to make a few more stops, I was very confident in our offense.” Three Rocky Hill backs ran for over 100 yards including Fernado Sanchez, who rushed for 205 yards and 3 TDs.
Rocky Hill’s defense stood tall as well. Leading 26-21 in the third quarter, Rocky Hill LB Terrence Thompson made a big hit on St. Paul’s Marcus Aiken on a 4th-and-1 near midfield, dropping him for a 2-yard loss. Rocky Hill responded with a pair of unanswered TDs. “(Thompson) did that, stopped and turned away. It was ours after that,” Rocky Hill coach Dave Coyne told the Courant.
It was the first loss of the season for the Falcons (6-1, 4-1), who had a seven-game winning streak snapped. QB Brian Kaczynski set a new co-op record with 389 yards passing, completing 16-of-28 with 3 TD passes. WR Ryan Moore caught 8 passes for 182 yards.
WINDSOR LOCKS, Oct. 18 – For just the second time in school history, the Falcons are 6-0. St. Paul easily rolled over an undermanned Windsor Locks/Suffield squad for a 41-14 victory. The Falcons scored four times in the first quarter and were never threatened. QB Brian Kaczynski was 3-for-3 for 152 yards and 3 TD passes. Ryan Moore caught 2 passes for 107 yards and 2 TDs.
The win ensures a winning season for the Falcons (6-0, 4-0 Nutmeg) for the first time since 2002 and the third time since 1992. "That was a big goal for us heading into the season," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told The Herald Press. "Now that we've reached this goal, we can start looking at some others and try and see what we can do."
Senior linebacker Kyle Supinski had 10 tackles, had 2½ sacks and forced a fumble. Marcus Aiken had two interceptions, including a 20-yard interception return for a TD. Rob Cannata had an interception and fumble recovery.
The only other time St. Paul won its first six games was in 1976, when the Falcons began the season 10-0. St. Paul has won seven games in a row -- the third longest winning streak in school history.
BERLIN, Oct. 17 -- Mike Mancini caught a 45-yard TD pass with 2:42 left to lift Rocky Hill to a 15-8 win over Berlin at Sage Park, handing the Redcoats (4-1, 3-1) their first loss and leaving St. Paul as the only undefeated team within the league.
BRISTOL, Oct. 17 -- Published reports have St. Paul applying to play in the NCCC next fall to replace Tolland, who has applied to join the Central Connecticut Conference beginning next fall. Applications from Tolland and Rocky Hill, a member of the Northwest Conference, are pending with the CCC. "We're still working on the applications for Tolland and Rocky Hill and the entire realignment of the conference," CCC commissioner John Tarnuzzer told the Hartford Courant. "We will have definitive answers by November."
The CCC approved applications from six members of the Northwest Conference (Berlin, Plainville, Middletown, RHAM, Northwest Catholic, East Catholic) in September. The addition of Tolland and Rocky Hill would give the CCC 32 teams.
ENFIELD, Oct. 10 – Marcus Aiken rushed for a season-high 195 yards and four TDs on 20 carries as the Falcons remained undefeated with a 48-30 win over Enfield Friday night under the lights. He ran for three TDs in the second half. "I think that this was his best game by far," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Bristol Press. "He ran the ball hard, he blocked well and showed great leadership. This is probably the hardest I've seen him run. He was just tremendous."
QB Brian Kaczynski threw 3 TD passes, including a pair to leading receiver Ryan Moore (2-104). Kaczynski was 9-of-17 for 224 yards. Enfield was led by speedy back Walter Moon, who raced for 319 yards and 3 TDs on 28 carries. Moon had touchdown runs of 86 and 81 yards in the first half.
With two late TDs in the second quarter, Enfield cut the Falcon lead to nine but St. Paul came out focused in the third quarter. "Not to let them back in it in the second half was huge," Kelly said. "It was really nice to see the kids' intensity and the way they responded in the second half." St. Paul (5-0, 4-0 Nutmeg) is 5-0 for the first time since 1976 and for only the second time in school history.
BRISTOL, Oct. 4 – QB Brian Kaczynski completed 14-of-19 passes for 3 TDs and a new co-op record 289 yards as surging St. Paul/Goodwin Tech/Lewis Mills won their fourth straight game with a dominant 39-6 win over Plainville. The Falcon defense allowed Plainville just 37 total yards in the first half as they seized a 27-0 halftime lead. St. Paul (4-0, 3-0 Nutmeg) is 4-0 for just the third time in school history. They were previously 4-0 in 1976 and 1972. Marcus Aiken (16-95) ran for a pair of TDs while Ryan Moore (4-104) pulled in a pair of TD receptions.
"I thought the defense played really well today, especially in the first half," St. Paul coach Judy Kelly told The Herald Press. "I was pleased with the kids' play all-around. Brian Kaczynski just continues to improve. I thought he played really well today, he called some audibles at the line and continues to make good reads and good choices. He showed his grace and composure today."
BRISTOL, Oct. 1 -- St. Paul can achieve a rare historical feat with a win over Plainville on Saturday. A win by the Falcons will give St. Paul its third 4-0 start in team history. The Falcons won their first four games just twice in 1972 and 1976, when they went 10-0 in the regular season. St. Paul has opened the season at 3-0 five times (2007, 2002, 1986, 1976. 1972).
Undefeated Falcons win
3rd in a row
MANCHESTER, Sept. 20 – Receiver Ryan Moore set a pair of co-op records with nine receptions for 209 yards as the Falcons rolled past East Catholic Saturday, 28-8 to win the Father Saunders Trophy and win its first three games for the first time since 2002.
QB Brian Kaczynski completed 12-of-20 passes for 231 yards and 3 TDs to Moore as St. Paul remained unbeaten (3-0, 2-0 Nutmeg). “They hit hard but our athletes were able to make plays. It's a really nice win for us," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Bristol Press. Marcus Aiken had a big play the first time he touched the ball, sprinting 68 yards for the touchdown.
St. Paul’s front four of Nick Daesener, Michael Vitrano, Ian Bradley and Hector Gonzalez helped stifle the East Catholic running attack along with linebackers Kyle Supinski and Anthony Cerreta. The Falcons intercepted three passes. "I'm really happy with the way the defense is improving," Kelly said. "The kids up front really stepped it up and did a nice, nice job and our skill players were able to make some plays when we needed them to."
BRISTOL, Sept. 13 – Marcus Aiken scored on a two-yard run with 27 seconds left and kicker Ryan Moore calmly kicked the extra point to lift the Falcons to a thrilling 27-26 win over Northwest Catholic. The lead changed hands four times in the fourth quarter. NWC took a six-point lead early in the fourth when Jake Golic scored on a 70-yard pass from Jack Murphy. The PAT tailed.
St. Paul, behind QB Brian Kaczynski (15-29-0, 249 yards, 2 TDs), found Moore on a 35-yard TD pass with 7:49 remaining to tie the game at 20. But Moore missed the extra point. NWC took a 26-20 lead with 2:49 left on a 20-yard TD pass to Golic from Nick Calitri. But when the Indians tried to run it in for two, Kyle Supinski was there to stop NWC’s Ras Morgan.
Kaczynski hit Moore (8-203) and Travis Thomas (2-26) on big completions to keep the game-winning drive alive. "The difference in the game was that the kids believed in themselves," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Bristol Press. "They believed that they could do it, they believed in their teammates, and that is just a quantum leap and stride to developing a quality football program."
BRISTOL, Sept. 12 – On a wet night and a muddy field, the Falcons scored 20 points in the first seven points of the game to beat Oxford, 40-12 and win the first night game ever at St. Paul in the season opener for both teams. QB Brian Kaczynski completed 11 of 14 passes for 258 yards and 4 TDs. On the third play of the game, Kaczynski hit Ryan Moore (3-104) with a 31-yard TD pass. "It was huge to get started like that and score right out of the box," Kaczynski told the Bristol Press. "I have to give a lot of the credit to the line. They played great. It was really a total team effort tonight."
Kaczynski set a new co-op record with 4 TD passes in a game, breaking the mark of three that he held with two other QBs. He threw two each to Moore and Byron Jones.
It was the first opening day win since 2002 for the Falcons. Marcus Aiken rushed for 113 yards and 2 TDs on 10 carries. "This is a great way to start the season," St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Press. "Everyone was really excited to get going and I thought the kids played really well.” It was the first varsity game for Oxford High.
In opener, Falcons to host first night game at school
BRISTOL, Sept. 9 – St. Paul will host its first-ever night football game on campus when they play Oxford in the debut contest on the Falcons’ new field behind the school. Oxford is playing in its first varsity game. At halftime, St. Paul will honor some special alumni of the school that helped in construction of the football field -- the Dumont family, Blake DellaBianca of Bell City Construction, Mike McPhee of McPhee Electric and Peter Roberge of Roberge Painting.

CCC not interested in adding St. Paul
BRISTOL, Aug. 8 – St. Paul could be left out in the cold as high school athletic conferences realign. A story in the Middletown Press said that several Northwest Conference schools applying to join the Central Connecticut Conference (CCC) have been told to eliminate St. Paul from their application to join. The story said that the CCC is considering adding four or six NWC teams but doesn’t want to consider St. Paul. Athletic Directors in the CCC will vote in early September followed by league principals. The story says that Middletown, Berlin, Plainville and RHAM are applying to the league along with Northwest Catholic and East Catholic. Rocky Hill has applied to join the NCCC.
BRISTOL – St. Paul’s Marcus Aiken has verbally committed to attend UConn beginning in September 2009. "He was ready to make the decision,” St. Paul coach Jude Kelly told the Hartford Courant. “My feeling is that if it's a verbal commitment your word is key and I told him if you're comfortable and ready and not going to have any regrets, go ahead and do it and get it done.
Aiken plays WR, RB and DB for the Falcons. He rushed for 933 yards and 6 TDs on 122 carries last fall and caught 31 passes for 476 yards and 7 TDs. He also returned a kickoff for a TD and ran back an interception for a TD. UConn recruited Aiken (6-1, 175) as a wide receiver. Aiken also plays basketball and runs track.
Falcons will play home games at high school
BRISTOL, July 28 – No more trips across town to Muzzy Field for the St. Paul football team. The Falcons will play all of their home games at St. Paul High this year. The school, booster club and coaches have been working hard to get the field ready to go with the installation of new goal posts, a scoreboard and other improvements.
Rocky Hill joins teams looking to leave NWC
ROCKY HILL, July 7 – The future of the Northwest Conference and the Nutmeg Conference could be in jeopardy with the report that Rocky Hill has applied to join the NCCC. "The coaches got together and we talked and the majority of the coaches wanted to go to the NCCC," Rocky Hill football coach David Coyne said. "So that's where we applied." Farmington left the NWC and begins play in the Central Connecticut Conference this fall. Berlin, RHAM, Plainville and Middletown have reportedly applied to join the CCC.
That leaves just Northwest Catholic, East Catholic and St. Paul in the Northwest Conference. Enfield, a member of the NCCC, plays football in the Nutmeg but if the NCCC continues to grow, they may be forced to leave at some point in the future. But at this point with no official words from any league officials, it is all pure speculation. Play for the 2008 Nutmeg Conference title begins in September.
Coach: Jude Kelly (4th year, 9-21; career 188-116-2)
Top players: Seniors Marcus Aiken (RB-WR-DB), Bryan Kaczynski (QB), Rob Cannata (Capt., WR-DB), Anthony Cerreta (Capt., OL-LB), Matt Guglielmo (OL-LB), Ryan Moore (WR); Kyle Supinski (Capt., LB); Juniors: Mike Vitrano (OL-DL), Byron Jones (WR-DB), Ian Bradley (OL)
Outlook: Aiken (933 rushing, 6 TDs), who has already committed to UConn for 2009, is one of the most versatile players in the state. Kacynski is coming off a very good junior year, tossing for 1,809 yards and 17 TDs, as is Moore (42 receptions, 790 yards, 5 TDs) and Cannata (19 receptions, 3 TDs). “Our work ethic, skill and confidence are improving,” he said.
Of note: Only four players remain from Lewis Mills, which began a junior varsity team this year. Seniors Dan Ryker (WR/LB) and Matt Guglielmo (offensive line, LB) are on the squad along with juniors Bobby Roman (RB/DB) and Jasson Chasse (line).
