Season continues for pair of UConn commits

The senior seasons for the majority of the players committed to UConn have come to an end but for Michael Tarbutt and Bryan Cespedes, there are still games to be played.

Tarbutt was 5 for 5 on extra points as Canisius High School defeated Bishop Timon-St. Jude 35-8 to win its third straight Monsignor Martin Association title on Saturday. The game was postponed on two occasions due to the incredible amount of snow to fall in Buffalo earlier this month and players on both teams helped clear snow from the field so the game could be played.

Cansius can wrap up a perfect season with a win over Stepinac in the inaugural New York State Catholic High Schools Athletic Association championship game on Dec. 7.

As for Cespedes' New London team, a win against Norwich Free Academy on Thanksgiving would have clinched a spot in the CIAC Class M-Large playoffs. However, the Whalers lost 63-40 meaning they needed some help to earn a postseason bid.

If Bethel had beaten Brookfield, New London would have been on the outside looking in but Brookfield won the game, then New London received bonus points with wins by Killingly and Griswold. Now New London plays at Brookfield on Saturday at 2 p.m.
