Brookline Knight Football

A Wild Weather Day
	The Brookline Knights played host to the Washington Prexies in
	the final regular season home weekend at Danny McGibbeny Field.
	Rain fell throughout the evening, but the ballfield took the
	brunt of the downpour without much damage. The temperature at
	8:00am was hovering just above forty degrees and the rain had
	moved on, for the time being. The forecast called for storms as
	the day progressed. In the meantime, the sky alternated between
	bright sunshine and gloomy overcast.

	A brief shower during the nine-year old contest was followed by
	increased wind. The chill factor dipped down into the thirties.
	As the eleven-year olds took the field to start the 1:00pm game
	the storm clouds rolled in. Within minutes the wind was howling
	and a deluge of hail began to fall. The tempest lasted for more
	than ten minutes, followed by a brief respite. Near the end of
	the game a second front blew through. It was wet, cold and very
	miserable. To the relief of all who remained, the final contest
	was played in relatively calm, but quite cold, conditions.

	It was a meteorologist's nightmare. And, on this wild weather
	day the Knights took three of five games from the Prexies. Next
	week its on to Baldwin for the regular season conclusion.

	WEEK #6 - October 4, 2014               @ Danny McGibbeny Field

	7-UNDER

	Washington 20 - BROOKLINE 7

	Scoring Summary:

	Tristan Pezzelle 48 run (Davaughn Locust run)

	NOTES: The Little Knights battled the Washington Prexies on a
	very chilly fall morning. The Prexies came to Brookline with an
	undefeated 5-0 record. The Knights, still looking for that all
	too elusive first win, came to the park ready to play football.

	Although the Knights stumbled once more, losing by the score of
	20-7 to Washington, there were once again good signs that these
	Knights are on the verge of finally cracking the ice.

	The Prexies coasted through the first half, marching for three
	touchdowns and a 20-0 lead. Although Brookline did not cross
	the goal line, Knight runners had a couple plays that looked
	quite promising. Untimely fumbles spoiled those opportunities.

	In the second half, the Knight defense buckled down and held
	the Prexies scoreless. Brookline's offense reawakened late in
	the fourth quarter when Tristan Pezzelle broke loose for a
	forty-eight yard scoring run. A fine block by Kaden Wysong was
	the key to setting Pezzelle free. Davaughn Locust followed up
	with nice run up the middle for the conversion.

	Next week Brookline takes on Baldwin. If ever a team was ready
	to finish their season with a win, it's these proud Knights.
	Keep working hard at practice and show up at Baldwin with the
	same drive and determination that you've shown all season long.
	This coming Sunday will be your time to shine.

	WEEK #6 - October 4, 2014               @ Danny McGibbeny Field

	9-UNDER

	BROOKLINE 32 - Washington 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Will Coleman 20 run (Racari El run)
	Keshawn Harris 42 run (conversion failed)
	A'Mirre Brown 55 pass from Racari El (conversion failed)
	Keshawn Harris 53 run (conversion failed)
	Keshawn Harris 50 run (conversion failed)

	NOTES: Coach Jason and his Brookline Nines put an end to their
	two-game slump by convincingly thumping the Washington Prexies
	by the score of 32-0. After going six quarters without getting
	a touchdown, the Knights went four-for-four, indulging in a
	total of five endzone celebrations before game time expired.
The Brookline offense was red hot
in the frigid fall weather.
	The Knights offense didn't just end their scoring drought, they
	exploded with offensive fireworks coming from several different
	players. Will Coleman crossed the plane first. Keshawn Harris
	added three touchdown runs and quarterback Racari El connected
	with A'Mirre Brown for a six-pack via the airwaves.

	In addition to the Big Four, Amire Spencer returned to the
	lineup after a brief absence and contributed some fine runs of
	his own. This kind of offensive output would not have been
	possible without the excellent play of the lineman, our trench
	warriors, who blocked well and opened up some big holes.
Keshawn Harris had three long touchdown runs.
	Brookline first touchdown was midway through the first quarter,
	set up by an Anthony Herisko fumble recovery. Another loose
	ball recovered by Spencer led to Brookline's second score, but
	not without major assistance from lineman Quinnie Walker.

	On second down and twenty-seven, the Knights tried a reverse.
	El handed off to Coleman, who attempted an exchange with Harris
	coming in the opposite direction. The ball was fumbled and
	quickly snatched up by Walker.

	Quinnie galloped off on a twenty-eight yard scamper that gave
	Brookline a first down inside Prexie territory. Harris covered
	the remaining forty-two yards on the next play to increase
	Brookline's lead to 14-0 at halftime.
The Knight cheerleaders did a great
job with their halftime routine.
	Brookline fumbled away the first possession after intermission,
	but made good on their next three. Brown registered his scoring
	reception on the next series. Shortly after, Coleman recovered
	an onside kick to set up Harris' second score.

	Staunch defense preceeded Keshawn's third dance. As the final
	seconds ticked away in the fourth quarter, only an excellent
	downfield tackle by a Prexie defender on Brookline's last play
	of the game saved a sixth Knight touchdown.

	Like the offensive eleven, the Knights defense also played a
	fine game as a unit. Although allowing the Prexies five first
	downs over the course of the game, they also gave a masterful
	example of how to bend but not break. Defensive standouts
	Walker and Dimajio Locante both made several good plays.
Brookline's defense throttled the Prexies.
	In addition to his running exploits, Harris also played a great
	game on the opposite side of the ball. Keshawn had a diving
	interception and several good tackles. His three touchdowns
	give him a total of thirteen for the season.

	One thing that these Knights really need to work on is penalty
	prevention. Brookline committed seven infractions totaling
	fifty-five yards. Aside from that, Brookline's Nines put on one
	heck of a good show.

	WEEK #6 - October 4, 2014               @ Danny McGibbeny Field

	9-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	Washington 19 - BROOKLINE 13

	Scoring Summary:

	Maurice Trent 45 run (Maurice Trent run)
	Maurice Trent 42 run (conversion failed)

	NOTES: Brookline's nine-year old Junior Varsity team fell to 3-3
	with a 19-13 loss to the Washington Prexies. The first half of
	the game was a shootout, with each team trading bulleyes.

	Washington started off the scoring with a long dash to the goal
	and a conversion to take a 7-0 lead. Brookline's Maurice Trent
	countered with a forty-five yard scamper to bring the Knights
	within a point. Trent aced the conversion to tie the score 7-7.
Maurice Trent takes a handoff from Mario Grannison.
	The Prexies answered with another fine run for the money and a
	successful point after. Trent responded with his second long
	touchdown run, this time covering forty yards. A failed Knight
	conversion left Brookline down by one point.

	A third Prexie endzone celebration near the end of the half
	gave Washington a 19-13 advantage at the intermission.

	The second half saw both teams trade possessions near midfield.
	Midway through the period Brookline marched into the Washington
	redzone before fumbling the ball away at the fifteen yard line.
The Brookline defense played strong in the second half.
	Washington countered with a sustained march to the Brookline
	thirty. From there the Knight defense stood firm and pushed the
	Prexies back to midfield, forcing a turnover on downs.

	Unfortunately for the Knights, the Prexie drive ate up most of
	the remaining clock. Without any time outs left, Brookline was
	unable to get off a play before the clock expired.

	Despite the loss, the Knights played a good game. They were in
	contention the entire contest and came close to pulling off a
	successful late-game comeback.

	WEEK #6 - October 4, 2014               @ Danny McGibbeny Field

	11-UNDER

	BROOKLINE 41 - Washington 0

	Scoring Summary:

	Raeshawn Caldwell 21 punt return (conversion failed)
	Raeshawn Caldwell 32 run (conversion failed)
	Raeshawn Caldwell 78 run (Antwan Peterson run)
	Jamyle Liebro 43 pass from Antwan Peterson (conversion failed)
	Raeshawn Caldwell 20 run
		(Antwain Carter pass from Antwan Peterson)
	Visawn Pennix 20 run (Antwan Peterson run)

	NOTES: Coach Joe and his Green Machine steamrolled over the
	Prexies of Washington, 41-0, for their fifth dominant shutout
	victory and sixth win of the season. The Brookline defense
	completely outplayed the hapless Prexies and the offense rode
	the legs of the	inexorable force known as Raeshawn Caldwell.
Raeshawn Caldwell scores one of his four touchdowns.
	The game began in nightmarish conditions that would be better
	suited for penguins and polar bears. A swift and nasty storm
	front blew through just as the game began. The skies darkened,
	the wind began to howl and the clouds opened up with a deluge
	of stinging hail that lasted over ten minutes. The ice chunks
	were followed by a drizzle that made for slippery conditions.
	The temperature itself dipped down into the thirties.

	Washington took the opening kickoff deep in Brookline territory
	and promptly fumbled away the ball. Brookline took over and
	returned the favor. The Prexies went nowhere on three downs and
	were forced to punt from their own fifteen. The ball went up in
	the air and the wind blew it back. Caldwell grabbed it at the
	twenty and ran straight to the endzone for a 6-0 Knight lead.

	The fumblitis epidemic continued on the next two series. Midway
	through the second quarter Washington turned the ball over to
	Brookline at their own thirty-three yard line. Two plays later
	Caldwell made it 12-0 with his second touchdown of the game.
Visawn Pennix pounces on a loose Prexie fumble.
	Another fumble on the next Prexie possession was pounced on by
	Visawn Pennix, giving Brookline another opportunity from the
	Washington thirty-nine. As the seconds ticked towards the end
	of the first half, Pennix followed up with a twenty-five yard
	run to the fourteen yard line before time expired. Only a good
	tackle from behind kept Visawn from another Knight touchdown.

	Brookline took the kickoff to start the second half. Caldwell
	promptly added to the Knight advantage with a seventy-two yard
	scoring dash. Antwan Peterson increased the lead to 20-0 with
	a good conversion run around the left end.

	Zaire Nelson chimed in with an interception on Washington's
	next offensive series. Nelson slashed and dashed for fifteen
	yards to the Prexie forty-one. Quarterback Peterson then threw
	a perfect screen to Jamyle Liebro, who broke one tackle and
	sped down the sideline for six more points.
The Brookline offense can put
a lot of points on the scoreboard.
	Liebro followed his endzone exploit moments later by picking up
	a loose Prexie fumble at the Washington thirty. The Knights hit
	paydirt again when Caldwell burst through the line for twenty
	yards and his fourth touchdown of the game. A conversion toss
	from Peterson to Antwain Carter made the score 34-0.

	With only three minutes remaining, Pennix capped off the Knight
	scoring festival with a twenty yard touchdown run of his own to
	increase the point spread to forty. Peterson's conversion run
	from the three added the last digit to the Knights tally.

	A final fumble recovery by Pennix, his second of the game, at
	the Washington twenty-four, was followed by the head referee's
	mercifully signaling that the game had ended. One could hear a
	collective sigh of relief from the Prexie sideline. They were
	ready to head to their warm cars and retreat south on Route 19.
There's all kind of pain being
inflicted by this Brookline defense.
	The Knights record now stands at 6-0. They have outscored their
	six opponents by a grand score of 224-20. Multi-talented
	Raeshawn Caldwell, the Grand Wizard of this Green and Black
	juggernaut, has accounted for 125 of those points with twenty
	touchdowns and three conversion runs. His efforts to date, on
	both offense and defense, have been simply outstanding.

	Much the same can be said for the entire Brookline team. These
	kids are still maturing and improving week by week. Next Sunday
	the Knights travel to Baldwin to take on the Highlanders. It
	might not be a bad idea for the Township tribesmen to pack up
	and flee to the rural highlands while there is still time.
	This gang of Mighty Knights means business.

	WEEK #6 - October 4, 2014               @ Danny McGibbeny Field

	11-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	BROOKLINE 14 - Washington 12

	Scoring Summary:

	Zaire Nelson 73 run (Branndon Pezzelle run)
	Zaire Nelson 17 pass from Branndon Pezzelle
		(Branndon Pezzelle run)

	NOTES: The eleven-year old Junior Varsity Knights pulled off an
	exciting late-game come-from-behind victory over the Washington
	Prexies by the score of 14-12. Down 12-7 at halftime, Brookline
	fought back and scored the winning touchdown with only seconds
	remaining in the contest.

	The game began in the final stages of a blustery hail storm
	that began during the previous game. The wet conditions caused
	some problems holding on to the ball and fumbles were frequent.
Brookline defense struggled early but
ended up playing a great game.
	While the Knights were struggling to gain a grip, the Prexies
	managed to overcome the inclement inconvenience. Washington
	runners held firmly to the pigskin and rang up two quick
	touchdowns to jump off to an early 12-0 lead.

	Nearing the end of the half, Zaire Nelson took a handoff and
	began a mad dash downfield. Nelson ran this way and that to
	elude oncoming tacklers. Twice he was in the grasp of the
	defenders only to break free and continue his flight.

	Nelson's wild ride ended seventy-three yards downfield when he
	passed the endzone pylon. Branndon Pezzelle then skirted the
	right side for the point-after to bring the Knights to within
	six ticks at the intermission break.
Zaire Nelson scores the winning touchdown.
	Both teams traded blows near midfield for the first twelve
	minutes of the second half. At the eight minute mark, Nelson
	broke loose for a thirty yard run deep into Prexie territory.
	The fine effort was negated by a penalty.

	Then, on fourth and long, Pezzelle burst through the middle on
	a quarterback sneak and streaked towards the endzone. Branndon
	was brought down at the Washington seventeen yard line after a
	thirty-five yard gain.
The victorious Knights
	With the clock ticking towards the end of the game, Pezzelle
	went to the air. He launched a perfect strike to Nelson, who
	raced to the goal line to put the Knights ahead 13-12. Pezzelle
	put the icing on the cake with his second successful conversion
	run, powering his way through a pack of Prexies. The final
	score was: Brookline 14 - Washington 12.

	Congratulations to all of Brookline's JV players. They endured
	the rain, the hail, the wind, the bitter cold and a determined
	Washington Prexie team. It was a great game for our Knights!
