	NOTES: Coach Bruce and his nine-year old Knights made their
	first trip to the Super Bowl to take on the Montour Spartans.
	The game would decide which team would lay claim to the 2012
	SSYFL Championship and a spot on the coveted Super Bowl trophy.
	In an early-season matchup the Knights beat the Spartans, 8-6.
	Despite high hopes for a repeat, Brookline's Nines fell to the
	Spartans in the title game by a score of 12-6.
The Knights take the field for Super Bowl VII.
	The Spartans scored on their first possession after a long run
	positioned them at the Knights four yard line. A good stop on
	the conversion by Mekhi Gay kept the damage to only six points.
	Midway through the second quarter, Brookline's defense forced
	Montour to punt on a fourth and thirty-six. Brandon McGough
	returned the kick across midfield and into Spartan territory.

	The slumbering offense capitalized on the momentum shift. Grant
	Hamilton threw a pass to Jamyle Liebro, who slashed and dashed
	his way forty-four yards to the Spartan five yard line. Liebro
	finished things off with a touchdown run on the next play to
	even the score at 6-6. The game remained tied at halftime.

	Brookline and Montour traded blows near the Knights thirty yard
	line for most of the third quarter. With a minute to play in
	the period, the Spartans broke the stalemate with another long
	run for a score. Dylan Studer and Antwain Carter stopped the
	conversion to keep Brookline within striking distance at 12-6.
Antwain Carter looks for running room.
	The fourth quarter was a two possession match. The Knights took
	control first and began their only sustained drive of the game.
	Carter got things rolling with a thirty yard run into Spartan
	territory. Another first down moved the sticks to the Montour
	nineteen yard line. The Spartans stiffened their resistance.

	On fourth and eleven, Hamilton threw a pass to McGough, who
	began a mad dash for the first down marker. Brandon was dropped
	on the sideline. It looked like he might have made it. When the
	referee spotted the ball it was just shy of the mark. Inches
	were all that separated Brookline from a promising chance to
	tie the contest. Instead, with only five minutes remaining, the
	Montour offense took over on the Brookline ten yard line.

	The Knights season now depended on a quick stop by the defense.
	Once again the pressure was on and Brookline needed a big play.
	After so many rescues over the past ten games, the pot ran dry.
	Montour forged their way to five first downs. It was their only
	real drive of the game and couldn't have come at a worse time.
	As the clock ticked towards zero, so went the Knights hopes for
	the lasting glory of a Super Bowl championship.
The Knights and Spartans battled hard
for the entire forty minutes. The game
hung in the balance until the very end.
	During the game, Montour held a 27:20-12:40 advantage in time
	of possession. The Brookline defense spent sixty-seven percent
	of the game trying to hold back the Spartan attack. In the end
	the persistent battering took it's toll. The Spartans, led by
	speedy Zachary Carletti, gained 206 yards rushing on forty-one
	carries, 122 of these coming in their final two possessions.
	Montour was penalized twice for fifteen yards.

	On the other side of the line, Brookline's offense generated
	124 total yards, fifty-five of these on the ground (Antwain
	Carter 8/34, Jamyle Liebro 7/15, Mekhi Gay 2/6, Grant Hamilton
	2/1, Andrew Cagey 1/-2). Hamilton completed three-of-ten passes
	for another sixty-nine yards. Brandon McGough caught two for
	twenty-five and Liebro had one catch for a gain of forty-four.
	The Knights were penalized three times for twenty yards. Both
	teams fumbled twice and lost one apiece.

	The Knights season may have ended with a disappointment, but
	there is much to celebrate. The kids posted a 9-2 record and an
	overall .818 winning percentage. They beat some strong teams
	along the way, including the Montour Spartans, and proved that
	they had emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the SSYFL.
The Knights gather at midfield after the game.
There's a lot of sad faces in the crowd. In a day
or two these kids should realize that they actually
had a great season and have much to be proud of.
	Just last season, the current ten-year old team also lost a
	heartbreaker in the Super Bowl, and look at where they are now.
	This nine-year old team has the same kind of potential. So,
	when the disappointment wears off, think about all that has
	been achieved and take pride in your accomplishments. Remember
	the positives and come back next season ready to step up your
	game to the next level.

The Knights with the Runner-Up trophy.
Next year we'll be back for an upgrade!
	Congratulations to the 9-Under Brookline Knights on a great
	season. They may not have won the Super Bowl, but they won a
	spot in our hearts. It was a pleasure watching them play.

	The Players: Mekhi Gay, Grant Hamilton, Mark Conner, Antwain
	Carter, Andrew Cagey, Visawn Pennix, Nicholas Ault, Nathaniel
	Wilson, Jamyle Liebro, Dylan Studer, Michael Falce, Nathan
	Trainer, Derian Epps, Nathaniel Sesay, Zachary Kalsek, Gerard
	Secilia, Richard Stowe, Zachary Cicco, Ethan Parker, Bradon
	Logan, Brandon McGough and Billy Astorino.

	The Coaches: Bruce Morefield, Dave Trainer and Jay Webster.

	<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

	Some things I think I think:

	This team could have a bright future. With a strong core of
	returning veterans and solid skill players, this should be a
	highly competitive team in the SSYFL for the next few years.

	I keep thinking of Al Pacino's speech in the movie "Any Given
	Sunday" about football being a game of inches. I hope this
	team returns next year and finds those extra inches.

	Jamyle Liebro is a very talented runner. His instincts in the
	open field are outstanding. As he grows and matures, he will
	become the type of thoroughbred runner that defenses fear.
	Liebro gets my vote for offensive player of the year.

	Nicholas Ault is a quiet one, but he is quite a presence on
	the field. Nathan Trainer was another quiet one. You didn't
	notice them until they made another great play.

	How many touchdown saving tackles did Mekhi Gay and Visawn
	Pennix make in the defensive backfield? I lost count.

	Once again, Kudos to the entire Knights defensive unit. They
	were the force that kept the team on top during all of those
	nitty, gritty close games. It's hard to pick a favorite for
	MVP, but I'm choosing Eathan Parker as my candidate. He edges
	out Brandon McGough, who is a great open-field tackler and
	a pretty good punter, too.

	If Zachary Kalsek tires of blocking, tackling and toiling in
	the trenches, he can always return kicks.

	I've known Coach Bruce for a few years and was really pulling
	for him. He's worked hard for the Brookline Knights program
	and I hoped this might be his year. Sometimes things just
	don't work out as planned, but this was still his best year
	as a Knights coach. Congratulations to Coach Bruce, Coach
	Dave and Coach Jay. You guys did a fine job with the kids.

	Let's not forget the cheerleaders. They don't wear helmets
	and tackling big runners is not their cup of tea, but they
	do work hard every week at practice and do their best to
	perform error-free during gamedays. The coaches and their
	girls did a great job all season long.

	Everyone has their favorites these days, and if I was in a
	department store over the holidays, admiring the latest line
	of Brookline Knights authentic gameday jerseys, I might be
	inclined to buy myself a #10 HAMILTON shirt. Grant Hamilton
	is a good kid and always gives his best. Today, he tried hard
	and played his heart out, like so many of his teammates. When
	the game was over, like so many others, he cried hard. Losing
	is never easy. It is a learning experience. Don't be fooled.
	Grant is a winner, and I believe that we'll be seeing some
	remarkable things from him as he matures into a leader.

	BROOKLINE 22 - Thomas Jefferson 6

The Knights pre-game warmups.
	NOTES: Coach Donnie and his ten-year old Knights came to Moon
	Stadium to avenge last season's Super Bowl loss. Not only did
	they sate their appetite for revenge with a 22-6 championship
	victory over the Thomas-Jefferson Jaguars, they emphatically
	proclaimed themselves as one of the elite teams in the SSYFL.
	As they did all season long, the Knights simply battered their
	opponent until the victim's will to continue was exhausted.

	To everyone's surprise, it may have taken a bit longer than
	expected to put away the Black and Gold Jags from T-J, but when
	the buzzer sounded to end the game, there was no doubt left in
	anyone's mind which team reigned supreme in this corner of the
	'Burgh. These Wild Stallions are the creme de la creme of the
	South Suburban Youth Football League, and possibly the entire
	Southwestern Pennsylvania metropolis.

	The Knights jumped off to an 8-0 lead with two minutes to go
	in the first quarter. Thomas-Jefferson fought back with a long
	drive of their own, sparked by two pass receptions that moved
	the sticks forty-seven yards into the Brookline redzone. A one
	yard Jag touchdown run made the score 8-6. The remainder of the
	half was fought to a standstill. The Knights clung to a slim
	two point advantage at halftime.
For a while this was a close game.
The Knights led by two at halftime.
	During the intermission, while the Brookline cheerleaders put
	on their final dance routine of the season, Coach Don and his
	staff found themselves in uncharted territory. The Jaguars
	were putting up serious resistance and mental mistakes by the
	Knights were threatening to expose the dragon's proverbial
	soft white underbelly. Thomas-Jefferson was determined to go
	down with a fight. The Knights needed to step up their game.
	The coaches undoubtedly made this point very clear.

	Brookline came out in the second half frothing at the mouth
	and primed to put an end to the charade. The defense battened
	down the hatches and the offense fueled the engines. The
	Knights defenders held the Jaguars to minus-eight yards on
	their first four post-halftime possessions while running back
	Marques Watson powered the offense to two touchdowns. Watson
	burst forth for 102 yards, recording eight points himself and
	setting up Nick Roell's third quarter scoring plunge.

	With seven minutes to play the Knights were ahead 22-6 and the
	second team defense was getting some Super Bowl playing time.
	When all was said and done, Brookline had once again soundly
	defeated their opponent and were the undisputed SSYFL Super
	Bowl champions.
Dominic 'The Bull' Leonard charges forward
for a nice run. Dom is an excellent blocking
back that can also gain the tough yards.
	By the numbers:

	Brookline gained 234 total yards. Marques Watson led all
	runners with 116 yards on twenty-one carries, followed by
	Mason Ventrone (10-34), Dominic Leonard (4-15) and Nick Roell
	(2-4). Roell was three-for-three passing for sixty-six yards.
	Ventrone hauled in two passes for forty-four yards and Jack
	Sullivan caught one for twenty-two. On the downside, Brookline
	was penalized four times for thirty yards and lost three
	fumbles. Montour had a 21:27-18:33 edge in time of possession.

	Montour gained seventy-nine total yards. They were twenty-eight
	for twenty-eight on the ground, with thirty-three of those
	coming on their final drive against the reserves. The Spartans
	completed three-of-nine passes for fifty-one yards, threw one
	interception and lost one of three fumbles. Montour was
	penalized once for ten yards.

	Brookline finished the season with an undefeated 11-0 record.
	Over the course of those eleven games, the team outscored their
	opponents 356-24. Watson and Ventrone combined for thirty-four
	touchdowns and 228 (64%) of the Knights impressive point total.

	The defense registered seven shutouts and the starting lineup
	was scored upon once all season long. These Knights knew from
	the start what was expected of them, and they went about their
	systematic slaughter with cool precision.

	Finally, this is the fifth Super Bowl championship for Head
	Coach Don Helman, and sixth overall. This puts him one ahead
	of the venerable Coach Joe Nicholas, who has one Super Bowl
	title and five overall championships. How do you spell winner?
The Players and Cheerleaders await the presentation
of the Super Bowl trophy to Head Coach Don Helman
	And now it's time for the Green and Black war horses to sit
	back and enjoy the fruits of their labor. The hard work began
	back in August. After three months of blood, sweat and tears,
	a new king has been crowned.

	All Hail The Super Bowl Champion Knights Of Brookline!
