South Buffalo High School Football Game Suspended After On-Field Brawl
Friday night's rivalry game between St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute and Bishop Timon/St. Jude didn't even make it to halftime before the game was suspended following an onfield brawl. Among those who entered the field was former St. Joe's and current Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly.
Timon/St. Jude was leading 2-0 when Chad's brother, St. Joe's quarterback Casey Kelly ran the ball out of bounds and went down along the tight sidelines at Tifft Field in South Buffalo. No penalty was called on the play, but it set off a brawl involving both teams and some spectators including Chad Kelly who was in town visiting family because Ole Miss is on a bye week. In several Youtube videos Chad Kelly can be seen being restrained from going after Timon/St. Jude players.
It was two years ago that Chad Kelly was arrested after a brawl outside a Buffalo nightclub with a couple of bouncers. During the scuffle Kelly allegedly said he was "going back to my car and getting my AK-47 and spray this place." He received a plea deal and completed 50 hours of community service.
Game officials suspended the game with more than six minutes remaining in the second quarter. No one appeared to be hurt and there were no arrests. Buffalo police escorted St. Joe's players to their buses and game officials to their cars.
