BRIDGEPORT — Tyrese Wright passed for two touchdowns and rushed for another score and Eddy Holmes and Keith Gathers each scored twice to lead Bullard-Havens over Prince Tech, 42-8, in a CTC football game Saturday morning.
With the win, the Tigers improved to 9-1, won the CTC title and clinched, not only a spot in the Class S playoffs, but a first-round home qualifying game.
Prince Tech fell to 7-2 and saw its Class S playoff prospects dim. They’d need to beat Capital Prep/Achievement First next week to have any kind of shot to qualify.
Wright had 14 carries for 189 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown run, and completed 6 of 10 passes for 204 yards, including a pair of touchdown passes to Eddy Holmes (34, 47 yards). Gathers rushed for 91 yards, including touchdowns on runs of 33 and 2 yards.
Tyler Northrop rounded out Bullard-Havens’ scoring with a 58-yard touchdown pass to Malik Lominy.
Defensively for the Tigers, Wright had 13 tackles and one forced fumble and Tavon Smith had 16 tackles and one sack.
The Falcons (7-2) got on the board in the third quarter on Jose Morales’ 39-yard touchdown pass to Trondell Thomas.
