Brookline Knights
	Week #11 - November 3, 2007 - DIVISIONAL FINALS

	10-UNDER

	BROOKLINE 14 - North Hills 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Zach McGrail run (Connor McGinnis run)
	Connor McGinnis run (conversion failed)

	NOTE: This Knights team is awesome. There are so many
	qualities that go into making a winning team, and this crew
	has them all. Spirit, dedication, toughness, and a team
	attitude that puts the Three Musketeers and their
	"All-For-One and One-For-All" act to shame. From the coaches
	to the players, this team is just one fearsome football
	machine. They proved it again today against a good, tough
	North Hills team. For the second year in a row, the Knights
	took North Hills to the cleaners. Our Knights now have their
	sights set on the Super Bowl at Steel Valley High School
	Stadium versus Baldwin-Whitehall.

	Johnathan Kalsek run (conversion failed)

	NOTE: The resurgent Brookline Knights made it all the way to
	the division championship game. When they got there they gave
	the Southside Sabres one heck of a game. For a team that was
	2-4 after six games and on the verge of extinction, these kids
	really came on at the end of the season. They may have lost to
	the Sabres, but their late-season resurrection was a delight
	to watch. Sometimes a team can lose a game, but win respect.
	This Knights team earned our respect and that is the true
	measure of a winner.
The Knights came ready to play
