Brighton High won its first ever Division 2 Eastern Mass boys basketball title on Monday night by beating Stoughton High at TD Garden.
The 53-42 victory propels the Bengals (21-3) to the Division 2 State Championship game at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the DCU Center in Worcester against the winner of tomorrow’s game between St. Bernard’s and Mahar.
“I told them in the locker room this is the moment, we’re going to enjoy it, we’re going to go home and when we fall asleep and wake up tomorrow it’s a done deal,” Brighton Coach Hugh Coleman said. “We want to have the best week of practice and school and go out there and let the chips fall where they may.”
