Brookfield knocks off Tolland, 73-70, advances to Class M title game

(WTNH)–What a great semi-final game between two teams no one expected to be there. The 10th seed Tolland and #11 Brookfield playing for a spot in the Class M championship game

BobCats jump out to a quick 14-2 lead, but the Eagles ride the back of senior Andrew Jaworski. This kid played out of his mind. Tolland was up 7 at the half.

Second half, the Eagles push the lead out to 14. Jaworski had 33 on the night.

The lead wasn’t safe. Brookfield’s seniors not ready for their season to end. Austin DaSilva off the glass to David Albanese. He had 34 points. Twenty-one of them came in the 2nd half.

Then there was DaSilva, who’s headed to UConn to play soccer. He can play some hoops too. 13 of his 23 came after halftime.

There was no denying the Bobcats–they’re going to their first ever state championship game.

73-70 the final.
