East Catholic keeps playoff hopes alive, MHS loses finale

The way East Catholic senior running back Andre Brackett saw things, the Eagles annual Thanksgiving eve matchup with rival Northwest Catholic-West Hartford was essentially a first round playoff game.  The Eagles entered the game with a tenuous hold on the No. 8 spot in the CIAC Class S state tournament and the only way to maintain that spot was to win.

And that’s exactly what the Eagles did, dismantling Northwest Catholic early and often, on the way to a 48-0 victory at the Cheney Tech Sports Complex Wednesday night. Brackett was a key figure for the Eagles scoring three first half touchdowns as East raced to a 28-0 lead at intermission. Bracket finished with 111 yards on just 10 carries and was named team Most Valuable Player.

East will not know if it has a spot in the Class S tournament until after all of the games have concluded on Thanksgiving Day, but Brackett feels the Eagles are playoff ready. “We deserve a spot and we just wanted to stay focused and finish business,” Brackett told the Hartford Courant after the game.
