In the first half it was glitz, glam and touchdowns.
“When homestead scored first we knew we had to put points on the board and keep it close,” said Sam Mcgath, Brookfield East quarterback.
But in the second half it was all rough and tumble defense.
“It was defiantly more defense then we’re used to playing in one half, but it was worth it,” said Brad Dati, Brookfield East linebacker.
In the end, Brookfield East came out with the 28-23 win over Homestead, and the chance at redemption against a familiar foe: Brookfield Central.
“Its the ‘Battle of Brookfield’ again. It was a good game the last time we played them. We had a few mistakes that could have came back and got them,” said Mcgath.
And what does it mean for this team to not just beat Central but to be alive for another week?
“Everything. It’s what you’re playing for. You play to win, play to advance. We are trying to be that team just like every other team still alive in the state of Wisconsin,” said Dati.
