	NOTES: Brookline's Nines made it ten-in-a-row and earned a trip
	to the 2011 SSYFL Super Bowl with a 20-12 semi-final victory
	over the Southside Sabres. The underdog Sabres put up a tough
	fight, staying within striking range until the final minutes.
	But, when the timeclock expired, it was the Brookline Knights
	holding the invitation to next week's finale.
The Knights came ready to rumble.
	On both sides of the ball, the Knights dominated the contest.
	The offense, led by quarterback Nick Roell and running back
	Marques Watson, drove methodically up and down the field.
	Brookline gained thirteen first downs and converted on six
	fourth down plays. Southside managed one first down the entire
	game. With the exception of a long kickoff return and one long
	pass play, the Knights completely shut down the Sabres.

	Despite the absence of any offensive punch, a scrappy Southside
	defense kept the game close. The score was 6-6 at halftime.
	Down by fourteen late in the game, the Sabres scored with 1:44
	remaining in the fourth quarter to pull within eight points. A
	last-ditch onside kick attempt was pounced on by Aidan Logan,
	ending any hopes of a Black and Gold comeback. Once more, the
	Sabres finished three bricks shy of a load and the Knights are
	moving on to the big dance.
Brookline's cheerleaders had lots to cheer about.
Their next performance will be at the Super Bowl!
	By the numbers:

	Brookline rushed fifty-five times for 212 yards (Marques Watson
	36/150, Nick Roell 10/58, Dominic Leonard 4/10, Quinn Hunter
	3/4, Jayneil Latham 2/-10). Roell completed one-of-five passes
	for twelve yards, and Watson was one-of-one for eighteen. The
	Knights returned three kicks for nineteen yards, giving them a
	grand total of 261 yards for the day. Brookline was penalized
	twice for ten yards and lost one of two fumbles.

	Southside gained thirteen yards on twelve carries, completed
	one of three passes for fifty-seven, and returned four kicks
	for an additional seventy-two. They were sacked once for a nine
	yard loss. That's a total of 133 yards, 122 of which came on
	two plays. The Sabres were penalized twice for ten yards and
	lost one of two fumbles.
Brookline is going to the Super Bowl.
	Coach Mike and his Brookline Nines now advance to the SSYFL
	championship round next Saturday versus the Moon Tigers. The
	game will be played at Thomas-Jefferson High School Stadium.

	NOTES: Coach Joe and Brookline's eleven-year old Knights came
	to Moon High School to once again wage war against the Spartans
	of Montour. The highly-anticipated "Battle of the Titans" lived
	up to it's pre-game billing. After consecutive losses to the
	Spartans, Brookline's double-overtime win over their suburban
	nemesis is proof positive that the third time is a charm.

	The Knights put the past behind and stuck it to the Spartans.
	They gave as good as they got. It was a struggle for supremacy.
	The tide of momentum flowed, and the frequent mood swings kept
	the crowd on the edge of their seats. After forty minutes of
	bruising, bitter warfare, the score was deadlocked at six-all.
Halftime. Brookline was ahead 6-0 but the
Spartans were nowhere near finished. These
kids played their hardest game of the year.
	The game moved to overtime, and the prime-time drama continued.
	Montour got first possession and used all four plays to punch
	the ball into the endzone. A conversion failure left the score
	at 12-6. Brookline answered in three plays. A Brent Ivory burst
	tied things up at 12-12. An endzone pass fell incomplete and
	the game entered another extra round.

	Brookline saw their opportunity and seized the moment. A three
	yard plunge up the middle by Quran Powe put Brookline back on
	top. Powe aced the conversion to give the Knights a commanding
	eight-point lead. Now it was time for the defense to rise to
	the occasion, and rise they did.
Brookline worked hard to stop
the potent Spartan running game.
	Led by Darryl Daniels, Brookline snuffed the Spartan spirit and
	slammed the door shut. Four plays netted only two yards. The
	Knights were victorious. The Spartan menace had finally been
	vanquished. The third time really is the charm, and now Coach
	Joe and his Deputies are going to the Super Bowl.

	This was, without a doubt, the hardest contest of the season.
	It was a great game and a pleasure to watch. For Coach Joe,
	this will be his first trip back to the title game in eleven
	years. For everyone else, it is the first trip ever. Now let's
	get down to work and make the most of this big chance.
Coach Joe addresses the team after the game.
	By the numbers:

	The Knights offense gained 194 total yards, 172 on the ground
	and twenty-two through the air. Lamar Lewis led the Brookline
	runners (9/58), followed by Darryl Daniels (13/57), Quran Powe
	(18/51) and Brent Ivory (3/6). Ivory completed five-of-ten
	passes for an additional twenty-two yards and one touchdown.
	Brookline was penalized three times for twenty-five yards, lost
	two fumbles and had one pass intercepted. The Knights made nine
	first downs.

	Montour gained ninety-nine total yards, rushing twenty-seven
	times for sixty-eight and completing three-of-ten passes for
	thirty-one more. The Spartans lost one fumble and threw two
	interceptions. They were penalized once for a loss of five,
	and held to only three first downs.

	Brookline (9-1) will play West Allegheny (10-0) next Saturday
	in the championship game at Thomas-Jefferson High School.
