Thursday was a great day to be a St. Paul Falcon.
Here are some reasons why:
- St. Paul girls lacrosse, in its first year as a varsity program, picked up its first-ever win, 12-9 over Amistad under the home lights. The victory set off a big celebration from the girls. You can see the celebration on Patrick Tiscia's Twitter account. The Falcons certainly made it interesting after being in control with an 8-2 halftime lead, but a win is a win and this first-year program will take it.
- Speaking of interesting, St. Paul baseball rallied on the road for a 4-2 win over Torrington at Fuessenich Park. The Falcons were down 2-1 and down to their final three outs, but managed to tally three runs in their last at bats to steal the road victory. St. Paul improved to 12-2 and stayed atop the Class S state tournament standings.
- St. Paul softball rolled to a 10-0 home win and clinched a Class S state tournament berth. The Falcons improved to 8-2 on the season. Tomorrow offers a test -- weather permitting -- when Oxford comes to Bristol for a 3:45 game.
- The St. Paul girls tennis team improved to 8-4 on the season by beating Seymour on the road. The Falcons once again have a good team on the hard courts.
And here's a bonus: St. Paul boys lacrosse clinched a state tournament berth under first-year head coach Chris Kennedy by shutting out Amistad 11-0 on the road yesterday.
