Brookline Knights Football Association
The 2004 Twerps
Record: 9-1

A New Generation of Champions

The 2004 Brookline Knights Twerps, led by Coach Donnie Helman, capped off a dominant season with a 22-6 victory over Sto-Rox in the WPSYFL Championship Game, November 6, at Carlynton Stadium.

The Twerps began the season with two quick wins against Carlynton and Avonworth. In their third game, the Knights were tripped up by Sto-Rox, 18-14. They rebounded to run off an string of seven successive wins. After disposing of Carlynton 16-8 in a mudbath during the semi-final game, the title victory against Sto-Rox was sweet revenge for Brookline's newest champions!

The Twerps came out ready
to rumble against West Allegheny
in Week#8. They were on a roll!

Backup QB Zac McGrail and RB Martino
Stein led Brookline's offense on a
late drive for a touchdown during
the 38-8 win over West Allegheny.

The title game was all Brookline. Parris Gilchrist opened the scoring with a twenty-three yard run. Connor McGinnis added touchdowns on runs of fifteen and four yards, giving the Knights a commanding 22-0 lead early in the third quarter. The Brookline defense totally shut down the Sto-Rox offense. A late touchdown prevented a shutout, but the blemish did nothing to spoil the overwhelming performance by Brookline's tiniest Knights.

Coach Donnie's potent offense averaged over twenty-seven points a game for the season. Below are the game by game results from the Twerps fantastic 2004 season and some couple photos from the playoff games.
