The New York Patriots held their 3rd annual intersquad scrimmage.  This year we saw the Red and Blue color combination with the team being separated by how many years of service they have with the team.

The Red team was made up of 1st and second year players.  The Blue being 3rd year and original Patriots in their 4th season.  The young ins came out super confident but maybe a bit too cocky as a refusal to punt deep in their own end led to a turnover on downs.  Original Patriot Tajae Montgomery scored the initial touchdown and with a conversion the vets took an 8-0 lead.  The Blue team followed up with another touchdown on the ground as original Patriot Ed Lawrie Jr. carried a few Red shirts into the end zone to seal the win.  The Patriots were able to get some quality work in on their bye week with this annual affair, before thunderstorms cut the evening short the entire team was already itching to get back to live action against another opponent.  That chance is just over a week away as they head back to Canada to take on the Trois Rivieres Phenix.

Queens Huskies Fail To Field Full Team

Patriot Exhibition Shows Unlikely Stars

The Bronx hasn’t been burning, but there seems to be something going around the Boogie Down that makes home games hard to come by for the New York Patriots.  This time the Queens Huskies came to Macombs late and short handed.  “We apologize to everyone who came out to watch the Patriots and the Huskies,,, which has always been a great and competitive game.  We confirmed all during the week that they would be ready to play and needless to say we are very disappointed” said Patriots owner and Head Coach David Patterson.

The day wasn’t a complete waste as the Husky players that did show up were given a few Patriots players for an exhibition game.  The Patriots that helped out the Huskies were the shining stars of the afternoon with Raimol Perez (aka Tenaza) was playing at 100 mph on both sides of the ball.  Jakub Rodriguez played quarterback and moved the ball extraordinarily well, especially an offense that was completely ran by the group of players that they had never played with.  He even converted a very impressive fake punt for a big 1st down that set up the initial score of the exhibition.  Rodriguez also converted the 2 point conversion as well.  The MVP of the day was Chris Kelly Davis, he was all over the field and his effort was a major reason why the fans at Macombs were not disappointed as they saw some quality and competitive football being played.  The Patriots tied up the game on a fumblerooski play that quarterback Dante Thomas caught a lateral from Tubby Otero and raced in for the touchdown.

The Patriots salvaged the day and are back at it this week with an ACTUAL SCHEDULED intersquad scrimmage between 1st and 2nd year players vs the veterans on the team Wednesday at Macombs.

Patriots Drop To Second In Independent After Losing  To Bucks

It took until the last 20 seconds for the Central Maine Bucks to pull ahead on the scoreboard and the standings as the New York Patriots failed to seal the deal in Lewiston on Saturday.  After falling behind 9-0 the Bucks and Pats went back and forth before the rains came.  When the clouds parted and play resumed the 9-8 lead was extended to 15-8.  The Patriots roared back and off the strength of a Tajae Montgomery conversion, they took the lead 16-15.  Unfortunately, they could not hold it as a botched snap on a punt and a series of mistakes put the Bucks in the red zone.  With just 20 seconds left, the Bucks completed a touchdown pass to send the Patriots back to the big apple in second place. They have a few weeks off now until hosting the Queens Huskies July 13th.


 The Patriots game against the Pirates was forfeited on Saturday.  The Pirates had issues that prevented them from getting  to the Bronx.  Pirates owner and Head Coach TJ Malave sent his apologies.  The Patriots although disappointed were able to get some practice in before enjoying the rest of their father’s day weekend.

Patterson Gets To Win #150 as

Patriots Take Control Of Independent Conference In

Defensive Battle With Huskies

The saying that “Defense Wins Championships” is very common in the football world.  On Saturday in the shadow of Bunker Hill Monument in   

Charlestown Massachusetts, there was nobody in attendance that would argue that defense was the star of the show.  On the way to Patriot Owner and Head Coach David Patterson’s 150th career victory, both the Pats and the Jamaica Plain Huskies defenses pitched shutouts.  They were also the only ones that put up points, as the Patriots took 3 defensive touchdowns and the victory in Boston.

The Huskies opened the scoring on a fumble returned 50 yards for a touchdown.  The botched exchange was a major  problem for the Patriots which was missing key components on the offensive line.  The offense did show some signs of life and gained yards to change field position but couldn’t muster any points.  Allen Mock took a botched punt attempt in for a score to tie the game.  The defense struck next on a fumble recovery and score by veteran captain Jerome Bailey.  To cap off the scoring, Dayshawn Fields took a pick to the house to clinch the 2nd straight win for the Patriots.


Panther Top Patriots In Charity Game

The Patriots offense may have stayed in New York as they were shut out for the second consecutive week.  “Mistakes..” Coach Patterson repeated “mistakes at the worst possible times”.  The Boston Panthers were able to convert one of those mistakes on an interception right before the half and that would be the deciding and only points of the game.

The Patriot defense held firm and even made key interceptions in their own red zone to avoid an early deficit.  The Patriots offense even scored a touchdown that was called back.  A Kenyah Wiggins punt return was heading for the end zone when the ball inexplicably squirted out of his hands on the way to what would be a very frustrating evening.  The Patriots move into next week with a Independent Conference showdown with the Jamaica Plains Huskies.

Road Trip Chronicles

Patriots enjoy short say in Steel City

The New York Patriots first overnight trip of the 2019 season went very well.  The hotel pool and hot tub provided plenty of entertainment  for the squad as their annual rookie show was a huge success.   After the game the team went out for Pizza and Wings at the Classic Sponsors resturant.  One of the other highlights of the trip was a Sunday afternoon in the downtown area of Pittsburgh.  Bicycling down the waterfront, a meal at Jerome Bettis’ restaurant, and some sightseeing.

Patriots Overwhelmed By Dominant Wolves

Western Pennsylvania is know for VERY competitive football.  The Patriots learned that lesson the hard way in a very long night in Pittsburgh as the Wolves scored early and often in enroute to a trouncing of the New Yorkers.  One thing that came of this was the fact that the nearly 20 players in the rookie class even in the face of a huge deficit and a physically imposing team did not quit and gave their best effort with the understanding that they will need much more experience and work to get to that level.

Patriots Win In Whiteout Debut

The New York Patriots handled business last night in what Owner and Head Coach David Patterson would not call a statement win… But a much needed one.  Besides having the Patriots move up in the ECFL standings with their first league win of the season, the Patriots checked off a items off their list.  They evened their record to 2-2, picked up their first win in the state of Massachusetts, and their offense scored multiple touchdowns for the first time this year.

Quarterback Dante Thomas also scored a first for the team this season by not having a single turnover in a game.  With a big throw to Kenya Wiggins for a touchdown to open the scoring and a awesome sideline throw that Damien Harvey toe tapped his way inside the pile on for the Patriots last score of the game.  Defensive coordinator John McDermott’s unit got into the end zone again with a Hendryck Rodriguez pick 6.  They also added a conversion of sorts when rookie Allen Mock recorded the second safety of the year for the team.  With that and pitching a shutout of the Gators it was all around a great afternoon for the Patriots.

Patriots from New York Feel at Home In Foxboro

The team was also able to enjoy some of their time in the Boston area as they visited the home of their namesake in Foxboro.  They had dinner in the Gillette Stadium complex and mixed it up with locals  who were both overjoyed and disgusted at seeing NEW YORK attached to their beloved Patriot name.  While back 2 weeks later before their game against the Boston Panthers they were able to spend some time doing some great team building activities. 

The team went bowling, toured the Patriots Hall of Fame and took in a movie as part of their stay at the Gillette Stadium campus area.  These activities are the reason why the team is much more than football!

Patriots Win Nobles Of The Smoke Bowl

Shutout Crusaders in Washout

The Patriots got back to their winning ways on Sunday night in a pouring rain as they scored a much needed victory against the New York Crusaders. A first victory on the season and their first against the Crusaders in 3 years of competition between the teams.  The teams locked in to a scoreless half before the Patriots put a drive together and converted in the red zone.  They had been 0 for 3 in the red zone in the first half before rookie Ralph Nunez (out in week 1 and 2 due to injury) took the ball down and converted on the short touchdown which rookie quarterback Tay Breesch followed with the 2 point conversion.

The Patriots extended their lead before the 2 minute warning with a Derek Duran fumble recovery for a touchdown making the final 14-0.  It was an awesome send off as the Patriots were wearing their year 1 grey jerseys for the last time.  The Patriots head into their second ECFL game with momentum and they will need a similar effort as they travel to Massachusetts to take on Gators.

Patriots Drop ECFL Opener To Wolverines in Maine

The Patriots came up to Maine today and apparently left their offense in New York.  The Wolverines, whom are the preseason favorite to win the Independent Conference of the ECFL, came out the gates and showed what the preseason hype about their roster additions is about.  Two scores on sustained drives gave them a 13-0 halftime lead.  The Patriots, playing behind for the second straight week was able to get within 7 on a Alen Kaminsky to Taj Williams touchdown strike.  The Wolverines added a big field goal and a late touchdown to seal the game.  The Patriots get back to work this week for the Nobles of the Smoke Bowl against the New York Crusaders.

Patriots Open Season With A Loss At Home

The Patriots fourth season opened different than every other of the previous 3…. With a loss.  The Mount Vernon Bangers stunned the Patriots at Macombs Dam Park with a 99 yard drive to take the lead late and score a win.  The Bangers came out fast by returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown.  Down two scores at one point the Patriots came back with a Kenyah Williams touchdown catch which was an electrifying run after the grab for 70 yards.  Rookie LJ Diaz intercepted a ball and returned it the same distance for the Patriots first lead.  But the young Pats couldn’t hold the lead.  They need to get things together for a 60 minute effort as they go into their ECFL debut vs the Maine Wolverines next week in Freeport.
