	NOTES: Coach Joe Nicholas and Brookline's 11-Under Knights came
	to Chartiers Valley High School to take on the Montour Spartans
	in the 1st Annual Parkway Youth Football League Super Bowl.

	The top-seeded Knights brought along an undefeated 9-0 record
	and high hopes that this would be the year that Brookline would
	end the Spartan playoff jinx and bring home a championship.

	For the past two years, Brookline has defeated Montour in the
	regular season, only to fall to the Spartans in the playoffs.
	This year, the Knights were again victorious in the opening
	contest	and once more found themselves facing the dreaded
	Spartan Menace as the final obstacle in their path to glory.

	Brookline's players and fans arrived at Chartiers Valley's
	Colt Stadium confident that the third time would be the charm.
The Knights prepare to take the field of battle.
	Unfortunately for the Green and Black, Montour also showed up
	brimming with confidence. In a bitterly-fought contest that
	featured two evenly matched football teams, the Spartans
	out-hustled, out-gunned and out-played the Mighty Knights.
	They vanquished Brookline by the score of 22-8.

	The game began ominously for the Knights. Starting from near
	midfield, Montour scored on their third play from scrimmage.
	It was a forty-nine yard run by Number Six, Zachary Carletti.

	Luckily for the Knights, a penalty negated the six-pointer.
	The referee's call did not, however, change the tone of the
	game. Yellow flags, and Carletti the Spartan, would soon
	become a persistent problem.

	Brookline's defense rebounded from the near disaster and, two
	plays later, forced a fumble that was recovered by Visawn
	Pennix. The Knights offense took over and were held to just
	nine yards on four snaps. The Spartans then seized control.

	From their own forty-five yard line, Montour drove steadily
	downfield. A fourth down conversion run and a sixteen yard
	pass reception gave the Spartans a first down at the Knights
	twenty-seven yard line. From there, Carletti covered the
	remaining distance to the goal. A five yard, two-point sweep
	on the next play earned the Spartans an 8-0 lead.
Both teams gather during a timeout.
	A booming kickoff put the Brookline offense back in possession
	at their own thirteen. Knight runners powered the ball out to
	the twenty-nine yard line. Two critical penalties reversed the
	course and pushed them back to the Brookline seven.

	On second and thirty-two, an option pass from Raeshawn Caldwell
	to Jamyle Liebro advanced the pigskin twenty-three yards and
	gave Brookline a fighting chance. An incomplete pass and a
	third penalty killed the kharma and forced Brookline to punt.

	The kick traveled only five yards, then bounced back to the
	twenty-five before being downed. With great field position, the
	Spartans went on the attack. Brookline's defenders held them in
	place for three plays.

	On fourth and ten, Carletti took a handoff and broke loose for
	his second touchdown. This was followed by another successful
	Spartan two-point conversion. The first half ended with Montour
	firmly in command, 16-0.

	Raeshawn Caldwell instilled new life into the Brookline attack
	by returning the second half kickoff twenty-two yards to the
	Brookline forty-seven. Caldwell then blasted forward with two
	strong first down runs.

	Raeshawn finished his skillful work by putting Brookline back
	in the game with a twenty-one yard dash to the endzone. A good
	conversion toss from Antwan Peterson to Antwain Carter cut the
	Spartan advantage to eight points at 16-8.
Antwain Carter scores on a conversion pass.
	The ensuing kickoff was well-covered and Montour was downed at
	their own twenty-nine. Just as it looked like the Knights might
	be on the verge of a comeback, the Spartans turned up the heat.

	Two nice runs and an encroachment penalty pushed the ball past
	midfield to the Brookline forty-three. The Spartans then handed
	off to the swift and sure-footed Carletti, who found another
	crease in the Knight line and went all the way for his third
	endzone celebration of the game. Montour now led 22-8.

	The Knights were down, but not yet out. Starting from their own
	forty-three yard line, fine running by Pennix and Caldwell gave
	Brookline a first down inside the Montour redzone. The Knights
	advanced as far as the ten. The Spartan	line stiffened. A huge
	backfield tackle on fourth and one was the dagger that pierced
	the Knights armor.

	With eight minutes left in the game, Brookline's Knights were
	teetering on the edge of elimination. The defense gallantly
	fought on, holding Montour to just four yards and forcing a
	punt. The Knights got one final chance at mounting a comeback.

	A third down interception ended Brookline's title dreams and
	sealed the victory for the Spartans. Montour ran out the final
	four minutes to take the grand prize and proclaim themselves
	as the 2014 PYFL Super Bowl champions.
Brookline's offense played well but
penalties doomed their effort.
	By the numbers: Brookline gained 144 total yards. The Knights
	rushed twenty-six times for 118 and gained twenty-six through
	the air. Runners included Raeshawn Caldwell (12/100), Visawn
	Pennix (6/26), Antwain Carter (3/1) and Antwan Peterson (5/-9).

	Peterson was three-of-six passing for three yards and Caldwell
	completed one-of-one for twenty-three. Receivers were Jamyle
	Liebro (1/23), Carter (1/5) and Pennix (2/-2). Zaire Nelson
	added five yards, and Caldwell twenty-two, on kick returns.
	The Knights were penalized seven times for forty-five yards.

	Montour gained 184 total yards. They rushed thirty-three times
	for 160 yards and completed two-of-five passes for twenty-four.
	They gained a further eight yards on kick returns and were
	penalized four times for thirty yards.

	The Spartans had six first downs to the Knights five. Both
	teams lost one turnover. On the bright side, Brookline held
	Montour to a yard or less on eighteen of their thirty-three
	carries. It was a brutal afternoon in the frontline trenches.

	Hats off to Montour's Zachary Carletti. The young Spartan has
	been a thorn in Brookline's side for the past four years. His
	three touchdown day and determined play on defense was a
	performance worthy of the legendary Spartan warrior Leonidas.

	                   THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON

	Although the loss to the Spartans in the Super Bowl is a bitter
	disappointment, it is important to note what a spectacular run
	of success these Knights have had in the past four years.

	Since many of these players were eight years old, they have
	compiled a 30-8 record, outscoring their opponents by a grand
	total of 901-308. They have been to the Super Bowl twice in the
	past three years and, although coming up short both times, have
	represented the Brookline Knights with dignity and honor.

	Congratulations to Brookline's 11-Under team on a fine season.
	It really was a pleasure watching you play ...

	11-UNDER JV GAME (exhibition game)

	BROOKLINE 0 - Montour 0

	NOTES: In the Super Bowl exhibition contest, Brookline's Junior
	Varsity Knights fought the JV Spartans to a virtual standstill.
	After forty minutes of play, the game ended in a scoreless tie.

	Zaire Nelson broke free for a fifty-two yard touchdown run in
	the first half, but his fine run was negated by a penalty.

	Brookline defenders Idris Wilson, Andrew Cagey, Gerald Secilia
	and Michael Jackson all had several tackles to their credit as
	the Knights registered their second shutout of the year.

	Brookline's JV Knights ended their season with a 5-2-1 record.

'Curse You, Red Baron.'
