* 7-Under * 9-Under JV * 9-Under * 11-Under JV * 11-Under *

 
	WEEK #4 - September 21, 2014       @ West Allegheny High School

	7-UNDER

	West Allegheny 13 - BROOKLINE 0

	NOTES: Brookline's Little Knights played like young warriors,
	but once again fell in battle, this time to the Indians of West
	Allegheny, 13-0. It was the fourth consecutive game that the
	Brookline defense has done a good job keeping the opponent's
	scoring to a minimum while the offense struggles for momentum.

	The defenders held the Indians to a mere 7-0 halftime lead,
	with two magnificent goal line stands to their credit. On the
	offensive side of the line of scrimmage, a couple of nice runs
	by Tristan Pezzelle and Max Marzina failed to spark a rally.

	Brookline's guard continued to hold the line in the second
	half, keeping the Knights within striking distance as long as
	they could. A second Indian touchdown run on the final play of
	the game being their only blemish.

	Defensive linemen Rico Harris, Logan Oliverio, Jacob Morrison,
	Diego Matthews and Davaughn Locust, along with linebackers Max
	Marzina, John Finello and Christian Mangan, cornerback Tae'ron
	Runski and safety Dae'saun Runski all played fine games.

	Once the Brookline offense kicks into gear, this team should
	have no problem putting an end to this winless streak.
 
	WEEK #4 - September 21, 2014       @ West Allegheny High School

	9-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	BROOKLINE 13 - West Allegheny 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Maurice Trent 50 run (Maurice Trent run)
	Maurice Trent 40 run (conversion failed)

	NOTES: The Knights 9-Under Junior Varsity team made it three in
	a row with a 13-0 victory over West Allegheny. Maurice Trent
	had a great day running the football, scoring all thirteen
	points on two long dashes to the endzone and a good conversion.
	The touchdowns were Trent's fourth and fifth of the season.

	The Brookline defense earned their second shutout with another
	fine team effort. Dimajio Locante put on a highlight show with
	several tackles and Mario Grannison grabbed an interception.	
 
	WEEK #4 - September 21, 2014       @ West Allegheny High School

	9-UNDER

	West Allegheny 27 - BROOKLINE 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Keshawn Harris 2 run (conversion failed)

	NOTES: In the Battle of the Unbeatens, West Allegheny's Indians
	came out on top over the Brookline Knights, 27-6. It was a
	tough loss for Coach Jason's Knights, who jumped off to a quick
	6-0 lead only to see the Indians respond with twenty-seven
	unanswered points.

	The game began ominously for the Indians. On their first drive,
	Will Coleman picked off an errant pass and returned it forty
	yards to the West Allegheny two yard line. From there, Keshawn
	Harris powered the pill into the endzone.

	Unfortunately for the Knights, Harris went down shortly after
	with an injury and remained sidelined for the rest of the game.
	Without their main offensive and defensive threat, the team
	struggled to stem the tide of the Indian's relentless assault.

	Another Brookline defensive stalwart, Quinnie Walker, played
	an excellent game. Walker registered eleven tackles and had a
	sack that resulted in an Indian fumble. The loose ball was
	recovered by Aiden Didion.

	These fine individual efforts, however, were not enough to stop
	West Allegheny from claiming the top spot in the PYFL standings
	with three games remaining on the schedule. It would be nice
	to meet these feisty Indians again in the playoffs with the
	Green Machine's engine firing on all cylinders.
 
	WEEK #4 - September 21, 2014       @ West Allegheny High School

	11-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	BROOKLINE 7 - West Allegheny 6

	Scoring Summary:

	Zaire Nelson 91 pass from Branndon Pezzelle
		(Branndon Pezzelle run)

	Fumble Recovery: Jacob Davis

	NOTES: Brookline's eleven-year old Junior Varsity team pulled
	out an exciting 7-6 victory over the West Allegheny Indians to
	increase their season record to 2-1.
The Brookline defense played a great game.
	This was a bitterly-contested game by both teams. Brookline and
	West Allegheny battled it out near midfield, with both defenses
	playing tough. Late in the game, the Indian offense marched
	downfield and scored on a short run to take the lead.

	Down 6-0 with only three minutes remaining on the clock, the
	Knights struck with a nifty ninety-one yard catch and run from
	Branndon Pezzelle to Zaire Nelson. Pezzelle then put Brookline
	in the lead with a three yard run for the conversion.
Branndon Pezzelle launches a twenty yard
strike to Zaire Nelson, who ran seventy
yards downfield for a Knights touchdown.
	Although the Knights held the advantage, the game was not over.
	West Allegheny took the ensuing kickoff and marched downfield
	to the Brookline seven yard line. Two plays later the ball was
	at the one. There was time left for one more frantic charge.

	The Indians tried a quarterback sneak. As the buzzer blew the
	West Allegheny and Brookline lines both surged forward. The
	runner plunged into the middle of the pack and hit a wall of
	Green and Black.
Idris Wilson and Andrew Cagey stop an
Indian runner at the one yard line.
	Gerald Secilia, Andrew Cagey, Jacob Davis and Idris Wilson all
	collapsed on the Indian runner, followed by a swarm of noble
	Knights. When the pile cleared, the ball was spotted one inch
	from the goal line. Roma Victor! Game over.

	Brookline's defenders played a great game. Wilson, Pezzelle
	Cagey, Nelson, Davis, Secilia, Matthew Phillips and John
	Brueken	made some fine plays to hold back the natives. The
	Indians had a strong ground game, and these Knights stood firm.

	WEEK #4 - September 21, 2014       @ West Allegheny High School

	11-UNDER

	BROOKLINE 47 - West Allegheny 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Raeshawn Caldwell 55 run (conversion failed)
	Raeshawn Caldwell 49 run
		(Asahn Bey-Davis pass from Antwan Peterson)
	Antwan Peterson 45 punt return
		(Jamyle Liebro pass from Antwan Peterson)
	Zaire Nelson 50 punt return (conversion failed)
	Jamyle Liebro 52 pass from Antwan Peterson
		(Raeshawn Caldwell run)
	Raeshawn Caldwell 4 run (conversion failed)
	Asahn Bey-Davis 42 interception return (conversion failed)

	NOTES: Brookline's Senior Knights increased their unblemished
	record to 4-0 with their fourth shutout victory, this time a
	47-0 massacre of the West Allegheny Indians. Brookline coasted
	to a 35-0 halftime lead, then sailed through the remainder of
	the running clock contest, adding another twelve points before
	the buzzer sounded to end the carnage.
Antwan Peterson returns a punt for a touchdown.
	Raeshawn Caldwell scored three touchdowns to increase his season
	total to thirteen. Antwan Peterson, Jamyle Liebro, Zaire Nelson
	and Asahn Bey-Davis orchestrated their own endzone celebrations
	to round off the Brookline scoring parade. Quarterback Peterson
	had another fantastic game throwing the football.

	Brookline almost cracked the fifty-point mark. On the Knights
	third possession, Visawn Pennix took a handoff from Caldwell on
	a reverse and sped fifty-five yards down the left sideline only
	to have the effort negated by a penalty.
The Brookline defense was outstanding.
	While the Brookline offense ran wild on the reservation, the
	Knight defense ran roughshod over the Indians. Pennix put on a
	tackling clinic in the first half, and Liebro gave a masterful
	demonstation during the second, each with several bruising hits.
	Ryan Elliott and Antwain Carter added to West Allegheny's misery
	with additional punishing blows.

	Brookline's undefeated, unscored upon Knights meet the rival
	Montour Spartans next week at McGibbeny Field in the PYFL Game
	of the Week. This is an eagerly anticipated battle between the
	two remaining undefeated teams. It should be a great game.
