	WEEK #1 - September 1, 2012          @ Carlynton Athletic Field


	BROOKLINE 44 - Carlynton 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Marques Watson 60 run (Mason Ventrone run)
	Dominic Leonard 9 run (Mason Ventrone run)
	Jack Sullivan 18 pass from Nick Roell (conversion failed)
	Nick Roell 45 run (Marques Watson run)
	Marques Watson 10 run (Marques Watson run)
	Demetri Bose 35 interception return (conversion failed)

	Interception: Demetri Bose

	NOTES: Brookline's 10-year old Knights opened the season with a
	resounding 44-0 victory over the Carlynton Cougars. Quarterback
	Nick Roell guided the offense up and down the field, powered by
	running backs Marques Watson and Mason Ventrone. The crafty
	Roell also showed a flair for the passing game, with several
	nice tosses, including a touchdown to Jack Sullivan. The score
	at halftime was 30-0, and the Knights were firmly in control.

	The Brookline defense, led by Dominic Leonard and Demetri Bose,
	put in a solid effort, smothering the Cougars the entire game.
	During the final minute of the contest, a lone Cougar got loose
	and took off downfield with a clear path to the endzone. The
	stray cat was tracked down from behind by Jahmaine Hatten to
	preserve the 44-0* shutout.

	After last season's heartbreaking loss in the Super Bowl, these
	young Knights have something to prove. Under the guidance of
	Coach Don Helman and his wily staff of assistants, this team
	should improve game-by-game. If this contest is any indication
	of things to come, this could be the year for Brookline's Tens.

	* The SSYFL website lists this as a 50-0 Knights victory. After
	reviewing the coaches game notes we still come up with 44-0. We
	can only conclude that the scorekeeper included a sixty-five
	yard first half scoring run by Mason Ventrone that was called
	back on a penalty.
	WEEK #1 - September 1, 2012          @ Carlynton Athletic Field


	Carlynton 36 - BROOKLINE 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Jonathan Morin 65 pass from Nathan Ault (conversion failed)

	NOTES: Brookline struck first on the third play of the game,
	with a touchdown toss from Nathan Ault to Jonathan Morin, then
	silenced their guns as Carlynton came back to score thirty-six
	unanswered points en route to a season-opening 36-6 loss.
	WEEK #1 - September 1, 2012          @ Carlynton Athletic Field


	Carlynton 26 - BROOKLINE 14

	Scoring Summary:

	Quran Powe 91 pass from Brent Ivory (Christian Frazier run)
	Sharron Steave 50 pass from Brent Ivory (conversion failed)

	Fumble Recovery: D'onte James

	NOTES: Coach Joe Nicholas and his 13-year olds took one on the
	chin in their season opener. The Carlynton Cougars took control
	of the game early, building a 14-0 lead on a safety and two
	long touchdown runs. The teams then traded scores to close out
	the first half with the Cougars ahead 20-8.

	Brookline played Carlynton to a draw in the second half, but
	couldn't seem to put together a sustained attack. In a game
	marred by mental mistakes, dropped passes and two delays due
	to lightning strikes, the Knights showed that they have a ways
	to go before regaining that championship swagger of last year.
	WEEK #1 - September 2, 2012               @ Baldwin High School


	BROOKLINE 28 - Baldwin 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Jamyle Liebro 40 run (conversion failed)
	Jamyle Liebro 30 run (Antwain Carter run)
	Grant Hamilton 4 run (Mekhi Gay run)
	Brandon McGough 20 pass from Grant Hamilton (conversion failed)

	Fumble Recovery: Visawn Pennix

	NOTES: Coach Bruce Morefield and his nine-year old Knights
	opened their season with an impressive 28-6 victory over the
	Baldwin Breakers. Quarterback Grant Hamilton led the Brookline
	offense to four touchdowns, aided by a strong running attack.
	The Knight defense played well, holding the Breakers to just
	one score. Next week the Knights return to Baldwin for another
	shot at the Breakers. The upcoming game will be an exhibition
	contest and not count towards Brookline's overall record.
