	September 3, 2011                            @ McGibbeny Field

	8-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	South Park 6 - BROOKLINE 0

	NOTES: Brookline's Little Knights lost a tough one to South
	Park, 6-0. The first half was played to a scoreless tie. The
	Eagles scored on their first possession of the second half for
	the game's only touchdown. A good defensive stand deep in
	Knight territory near the end prevented another Eagle score. 
	Zachary Kalsek played a good game on both sides of the ball.
	On defense he made several nice plays. When the starting
	quarterback was unable to continue in the second half, Kalsek
	stepped in and ran the offense well.
Good Game, Good Game, Good Game ...
Regardless of the game's outcome. Good
Sportsmanship is what's most important.

	Fumble Recovery: Dominic Leonard
Pre-game warm-ups.
	NOTES: The nine-year old Knights made it two-in-a-row with an
	18-0 shutout over the South Park Eagles. Nick Roell led the
	Brookline offense with dash, and the defense put in a dominant
	performance. These young Knights have played well so far, and
	look like a force to be reckoned with in this year's SSYFL.
Marques Watson had another good
day running with the football.
	Dominic Leonard put the Knights on the scoreboard early in the
	first quarter with a fourteen yard run. The game then flowed
	back and forth near midfield until the final play of the half.
	Roell lofted a perfect pass to Aidan Logan, who rumbled thirty
	yards for a touchdown. The Knights entered intermission with
	a 12-0 lead and growing confidence.
The cheerleaders put on a good show.
	With 1:13 left in the third quarter, Marques Watson found the
	right sideline and dashed thirty-four yards for Brookline's
	third touchdown. Late in the game, an Eagle flew the coup and
	soared sixty yards towards the endzone. Speedy Jahmaine Hatten
	tracked the bogey down and dropped him on the ten yard line to
	preserve the hard-earned Knight shutout.

It's time to play.
	NOTES: Brookline's ten-year olds had another difficult game
	against South Park. A sixty-seven yard scoring run, and passes
	of twenty-eight and eighty-seven yards, staked the Eagles to a
	22-0 halftime lead.
Banging heads in the trenches.
	Quarterback Nathan Ault ended the Knights scoring drought with
	a forty-four yard bootleg midway through the third quarter.
	South Park scored once more in the final minute of the game.

	WEEK #2 - September 3, 2011                  @ McGibbeny Field


	BROOKLINE 40 - South Park 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Quran Powe 35 fumble recovery
		(Darryl Daniels pass from Brent Ivory)
	Darryl Daniels 30 pass from Brent Ivory (Quran Powe run)
	Trevor Hazen recovered fumble in endzone (Lamar Lewis run)
	Darryl Daniels 69 run (Lamar Lewis run)
	Quran Powe 34 interception return (Darryl Daniels run)

	Fumble Recovery: Quran Powe, Trevor Hazen
	Interception: Quran Powe
Introducing your 2011 eleven-year old Knights!
	NOTES: The eleven-year old Knights overwhelmed the South Park
	Eagles, running wild for twenty minutes while building a 40-0
	halftime lead. A late-game score by South Park spoiled the
	shutout, but could not dampen the enthusiasm of the Brookline
	faithful. This team is good, and they're going to get better.

	South Park won the toss and elected to receive. They stumbled
	about for five minutes, then fumbled. Quran Powe picked up the
	loose ball and took it back thirty-five yards for the Knights
	first score. Darryl Daniels struck next, catching a Brent
	Ivory pass for a thirty yard touchdown.
Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide.
	Trevor Hazen opened the second quarter by recovering a South
	Park fumble in the endzone for six more points, followed two
	minutes later by Daniel's second touchdown, this time a
	sixty-nine yard scoring dash. Powe gave the Knights a 40-0
	halftime lead with his second takeaway, an interception which
	he returned thirty-four yards.

	The second half saw the Knights reserves take the field, and
	they did a good job holding the Eagles in check. A twenty-five
	yard touchdown run with two minutes remaining put South Park
	on the scoreboard.
	After two games, the 2-0 Knights have proven themselves to be
	a top contender. With a multi-faceted offense and a swarming
	defense, this team has the tools to compete on a high level.
	It's going to be fun watching them evolve. Coach Joe and his
	Mean Machine are back in business!

	There was one play that, if caught on video, might make the
	YouTube Top Ten List. Quran Powe kicked off. The ball shot off
	his foot like a rocket, right into the facemask of a stunned
	Eagle receiver, standing ten yards away. The ball bounced off
	the helmet and shot ten yards back into the quick hands of an
	equally-stunned Powe. Quran began running forward, then turned
	around and took off towards the wrong endzone. The referee's
	whistle ended the spectacle. The ball was ruled an onside kick
	and thus a dead ball where it was caught. It was quite a play.
Just another day at the office.

	WEEK #2 - September 3, 2011                  @ McGibbeny Field


	BROOKLINE 22 - Bethel Park 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Anthony McCray 73 fumble recovery (Jalmar Freeman run)
	Taylor Thornton 60 run (Dylan DiRenna run)
	Taylor Thornton 3 run (conversion failed)

	Fumble Recovery: Anthony McCray
	Interception: Taylor Thornton
Christian Hartung (#3), Taylor Thornton (#23)
and the rest of the offense is back on track.
	NOTES: The Brookline Knights and Bethel Park Hawks met in a
	re-match of last season's 13-Under Super Bowl. The Knights
	defended their title and gave Brookline fans hope for another
	successful season with a 22-6 victory.

	The Knight offense, bolstered by the return of quarterback
	Christian Hartung and running back Taylor Thornton, awoke from
	its slumber and moved the ball with consistency. Defensively,
	Brookline overcame three blocked punts and harried the Hawks
	from start to finish, allowing only a late-game score.
Anthony McCray returns a Bethel fumble
for six on the last play of the first half.
	The first twenty minutes were played to a standstill, until
	the final play. Anthony McCray scooped up a Bethel fumble and
	ran seventy-three yards for a touchdown. Jalmar Freeman made
	it 8-0 with a conversion run up the middle.

	Thornton opened the second half with a sixty yard touchdown
	run, capped off by Dylan DiRenna's successful conversion.
	Bethel threatened midway through the third quarter when a
	blocked punt gave them great field position at the fifteen
	yard line. The Knight defense stopped the Hawks at the six.

	DiRenna then burst loose with an eighty-seven yard run to the
	Bethel four, followed by Thornton's second touchdown, a three
	yard burst. The Hawks scored with four minutes remaining to
	avoid a repeat of the Knights 2010 Super Bowl shutout.
Go Girls!
