---- — Brooks falls short in semis

Brooks entered halftime tied 26-26, but could not hold on and fell to Suffield Academy 53-45 in the New England Class B semifinals.

“It was a great effort by the kids,” said coach John McVeigh. “We played a really good first half, but in the second half we just didn’t make enough shots. We defended the way we needed to defend, but it was just not enough offense down the stretch.”

Jayde Dawson led Brooks with 16 points, while David Berroa added 12 points for the Green and White.

“This senior class has made the semifinals three years in a row,” said McVeigh. “That is quite an accomplishment. They have a lot to be proud of.”
