WEEK #6 - October 6, 2012 @ Quarry Field
BROOKLINE 22 - Southside 12
Antwain Carter 35 run (Mekhi Gay run)
Mekhi Gay 45 run (Mekhi Gay run)
Mekhi Gay 7 run (conversion failed)
Interception: Jamyle Liebro
Fumble Recovery: Nicholas Ault
NOTES: Coach Bruce and Brookline's nine-year olds took a trip
to Bedrock and came away with a 22-12 win over the Southside
Sabres. The Knights entered the mosh pit called Quarry Field
and silenced both their opponents and the overly zealous Sabre
sideline mob. It was a good day for Brookline football.

The first half began slow. Southside took control of the ball
and drove downfield for the game's first score. Brookline
countered with Antwain Carter's thirty-five yard endzone dash.
Mekhi Gay aced the conversion run to put the Knights on top
8-6. A Jamyle Liebro interception stopped a second Sabre drive
and the half ended with the Knights holding a two-point lead.

Brookline's opening possession of the second half bogged down.
The Knights found themselves facing a 4th and long. Quarterback
Grant Hamilton took the snap, dropped back, and found himself
cornered by a strong rush. It looked like he was going down for
a huge loss. Hamilton managed to break free and run for the
first down. The wild scramble set up Gay's forty-five yard
touchdown run and conversion, increasing the score to 16-6.

The Sabres fought back with a long breakaway run to close the
gap to 16-12. In the fourth quarter the Knights went on a long
march. The drive was capped off by Gay's second touchdown of
the day, this time a seven yard burst. The Knights led 22-12.
The defense got tough and put down the final Sabre thrust.

This was another fine win for Brookline's Nines, who improved
their record to 4-1. The offensive line played a great game,
propelling the team forward while forcing the Southside defense
back. Kudos to the Brookline Knights battling in the trenches:
LE - Brandon McGough, LT - Visawn Pennix, LG - Zachary Kalsek,
C - Eathan Parker, RG - Nathan Trainer, RT - Nicholas Ault,
RE - Braden Logan.
