Brookline Knights

* 7-Under * 8-Under * 9-Under * 10-Under * 11-Under * 13-Under *
	On a beautiful fall afternoon the Brookline Knights brought
	the traveling circus to Baldwin. There was plenty of sunshine
	and the temperature hit the 80s. As always, it was excellent
	football weather and the Knights made the most of the moment.
	They won four out of five games and outscored Baldwin 140-44.
	It was a fine day to be wearing Brookline's green and black.

	Scoring Summary:

	Jacob Davis 45 run (Jacob Davis run)
	Keshawn Harris 50 run (conversion failed)
	Branndon Pezzelle 70 run (conversion failed)

	NOTES: The Little Knights improved their season record to 3-4
	in the day's opening scrimmage with a dominant 20-0 victory
	over the Little Broncos. After three consecutive close losses
	it's nice to see the little ones back in the win column. Their
	twenty points is a season high.

	defenders hold an advantage of 2-1 over the opposition in
	shutouts. That's not too bad for our little big guys!

	BROOKLINE 42 - Baldwin 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Mekhi Gay 1 run (conversion failed)
	Antwain Carter 30 run (Antwain Carter run)
	Jamyle Liebro 27 run (Jamyle Liebro run)
	Antwain Carter 65 run (conversion failed)

	Nicholas Ault 61 run (Grant Hamilton run)

	Fumble Recovery: Zachary Kalsek, Antwain Carter
Mekhi Gay scores Brookline's first touchdown.
	NOTES: Coach Bruce's eight-year olds raised their record to
	five wins and two losses with a crushing 42-0 defeat of the
	Baldwin Broncos. Six different Knights combined to propel
	Brookline to a season-high point total. After sputtering to a
	2-2 record, including consecutive losses, these Knights now
	have three straight shutout victorys.
Antwain Carter breaks loose for a thirty yard scoring run.
	Takeaways by Zachary Kalsek and Antwain Carter set up two of
	the Knights three first half touchdowns. Solid defense up and
	down the line kept the Baldwin attack in tatters. The score at
	halftime read: Brookline 22 - Baldwin 0.
The cheerleaders did an excellent halftime
show. Their dance was catchy and entertaining.
	Jamyle Liebro opened the second half with a sixty yard scoring
	run that was called back on a penalty. Antwain Carter took the
	next handoff and covered the entire sixty-five yards to the
	goal. Visawn Pennix and Nicholas Ault also joined the point
	parade with their first touchdowns of the season.
Jamyle Liebro after his twenty-seven yard TD run.
	The Brookline defense played outstanding, holding the Broncos
	without a first down for the entire game. The victory assures
	the Knights of a playoff berth. Next week's opponent is the
	Montour Spartans, owners of an identical 5-2 record. That will
	be a good test of how well our Knights have improved.
The defense played an outstanding game.

	WEEK #7 - October 9, 2011                @ Baldwin High School


	BROOKLINE 22 - Baldwin 8

	Scoring Summary:

	Dominic Leonard 5 run (Marques Watson run)
	Nick Roell 1 run (Marques Watson run)
	Marques Watson 1 run (conversion failed)

	Fumble Recovery: Zachary Munn, J.B. Nelson
	NOTES: Coach Mike's Brookline Nines raised their undefeated
	record to 7-0 with another strong performance against the
	Baldwin Breakers. The Knight defense totally throttled the
	Breaker attack, while the offense kept Baldwin guessing with
	a well-rounded game plan and a gritty composure not often seen
	at this level of competition.

	Brookline won the toss and elected to receive. On their first
	play from scrimmage, Marques Watson took off on a fifty-one
	yard touchdown run. The play was called back on a penalty. It
	was only a temporary setback. For the next fifteen minutes the
	two teams exchanged possessions near midfield. Then, Baldwin
	tried a reverse on fourth down that was met by J.B. Nelson,
	who tackled the runner for a huge loss. Brookline's offense
	seized the opportunity.
Marques Watson breaks loose for a fifty yard
run to set up Brookline's first touchdown.
	Watson covered fifty yards in one burst to the Baldwin five
	yard line. Dominic Leonard covered the remaining yards, and
	Watson added a conversion for an 8-0 Brookline lead with four
	minutes to go in the first half. A good defensive play by
	Leonard gave Brookline another chance before the half ended.

	Three passes from Nick Roell to Aiden Logan, along with runs
	by Watson and Leonard moved the ball to the one inch line.
	Before time expired, Roell quickly got the offense to the line
	and took the snap. A quarterback sneak and conversion run with
	four seconds to go put Brookline on top 16-0 at intermission.
The Brookline defense broke the Breaker's back.
	The second half opened with a Baldwin fumble that was promptly
	scooped up by Zachary Munn. The Knights rode the legs of their
	thoroughbred Watson all the way to the endzone for their third
	touchdown and a 22-0 advantage. Another Breaker fumble on the
	next series was recovered by Nelson. A final Knight drive,
	highlighted by Quinn Hunter's twenty yard run up the middle,
	stalled at the Baldwin twenty-five yard line. The Breakers
	finally scored with 1:52 left to avert a shutout.

	Next week the Nines head to Montour to square off in a battle
	featuring the two remaining unbeaten teams. At stake is first
	place in the regular season and the top seed in the upcoming
	SSYFL playoffs. It should be a great game.

	WEEK #7 - October 9, 2011                @ Baldwin High School


	Baldwin 28 - BROOKLINE 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Anthony Carrington 47 run (conversion failed)

	Fumble Recovery: Cole McMullan (2)
Brookline won the coin toss.
	NOTES: Brookline's ten-year olds extended their winless streak
	by dropping a 28-6 decision to the Baldwin Vikings. As usual,
	the team put up a good fight and hung in there as long as they
	could. But, with no roster depth, the opposition eventually
	wore them down and the dominoes began to fall.

	The game was scoreless after the first ten minutes. Baldwin
	struck at 9:40 of the second quarter with a fifty yard run to
	stake themselves to a 6-0 lead. The Knights offense responded
	with a drive of their own. Hard running by Nathan Ault and a
	twenty-five yard dash by Logen Solomon put the ball at the
	Viking twenty-eight yard line. The Knights managed nine more
	yards before stalling nineteen hashmarks short of the goal.
The Knight offense moves in fits
and spurts. It can't seem to put it
all together in one sustained drive.
	Baldwin counter-marched thirty-nine yards into Brookline
	territory. From there, a forty-two yard touchdown run with
	fifty-one seconds remaining increased their advantage to 12-0.
	A quick interception and nice return gave Baldwin time for one
	last play. With four seconds left the Vikings scored again to
	give themselves a twenty-point cushion going into halftime.

	The Vikings bagged their third touchdown in a span of two long
	minutes with a scoring run at 9:01 of the third quarter. Then,
	just as it seemed things could only get worse, the Knights
	sparked a flame to warm the hearts of their faithful fans.
Anthony Carrington races towards the
endzone and the Knights only touchdown.
	On a fourth and sixteen, late in the final quarter, Anthony
	Carrington broke loose and rumbled forty-seven yards to put
	the Knights on the scoreboard, averting a shutout. In the
	last minute of play, a Cole McMullan fumble recovery gave
	Brookline another opportunity from midfield. A twenty-three
	yard run by Ault got the crowd cheering, but time expired
	before any further excitement could be had.

	Next week the Brookline Knights (0-7) take on the Montour
	Spartans (1-6). Already eliminated from playoff contention,
	maybe this will be the day that our ten-year olds bring home
	that elusive victory. That will be as good as a playoff win.
	Good luck, Guys!
Nathan Ault races forward in
the final seconds of the game.

	BROOKLINE 50 - Baldwin 8

	Scoring Summary:

	Quran Powe 5 run (Darryl Daniels pass from Brent Ivory)
	Lamar Lewis 65 pass from Brent Ivory (conversion failed)
	Darryl Daniels 5 run (Khalil Weathers pass from Brent Ivory)
	Quran Powe 29 run (Darryl Daniels run)
	Quran Powe 43 lateral from Lamar Lewis (Darryl Daniels run)
	Quran Powe 39 run (conversion failed)
	Jeremy Jenkins 59 run (conversion failed)

	Interception: Lamar Lewis, Brent Ivory
Julius Caesar said, in 47 BC, "Veni, vidi, vici." Coach Joe said, in 2011 AD, "I came, I saw, I conquered."
NOTES: Brookline's eleven-year olds completely destroyed the Baldwin Warriors, 50-8. These Knights are riding a tsunami of momentum and appear like an unstoppable force. With a defense that leaves opponents shaken, not stirred, and a cache of offensive weapons that would make an insurgent leader envious, this Power Posse is primed and ready to take on all comers.
The girls do their welcoming cheer.
	Five first half touchdowns gave Brookline a 38-0 lead at the
	intermission. The fifth was scored by Quran Powe on a botched
	play. Lamar Lewis ran into quarterback Brent Ivory during the
	handoff. Lewis took the ball and ran left, then right. He was
	trapped by a wall of defenders. Quran yelled, "Pitch it!"
Quarterback Brent Ivory has many
weapons at his disposal. He commands
an explosive array of talent.
	Lewis lateraled the ball to Powe, who dashed around the gaggle
	of defenders and sprinted forty-three yards to the endzone.
	By the end of the game, Powe had four touchdowns to increase
	his season tally to twenty-two, only five shy of tying the
	all-time Brookline Knight record of twenty-seven.
Lamar Lewis took a screen pass from Brent Ivory and
dashed sixty-five yards for the Knights second score.
	While Powe now has forty-two touchdowns in his two-year career
	with the Knights, reserve quarterback Jeremy Jenkins had never
	crossed the endzone plane, until today that is. Leading the
	reserves in the last quarter, Jenkins hit a groove and ran
	like the wind for fifty-nine yards and Brookline's final score
	of the day. It was his first touchdown as a Brookline Knight.
Darryl Daniels scores one of his three conversions.
	Next week, Coach Joe and his Deputies (7-0) go head-to-head
	with the Montour Spartans (6-1) in what could be the best test
	yet of how good these Knights really are. Brookline shares the
	top spot in the standings with West Allegheny (7-0). A win at
	Montour will guarantee the Knights a shot at the top seed in
	the upcoming playoffs. Go Brookline!
Coach Joe leads his Deputies in Green and Black.

	WEEK #7 - October 9, 2011            @ North Hills High School


	North Hills 40 - BROOKLINE 8

	Scoring Summary:

	Antonio Green 40 pass from Taylor Thornton
		(Taylor Thornton run)

	Interception: Dylan DiRenna

	NOTES: Brookline's 13-year old Knights traveled to North Hills
	High School to face the cross-town Chiefs. The team continued
	to struggle, falling 40-8. Antonio Green's last quarter score
	was too little, too late. It was, however, as has become the
	custom of late, a little sugar to cover the sour taste of an
	otherwise bad drink.

	Linebacker Matt Haskins left the game and was taken to the
	hospital with a broken arm. We hope that Matt heals quickly.
