October 21, 2012

STRATTANVILLE ­— The Brookville Raiders proved Friday night that a win doesn't have to be glamorous in their 28-19 victory over the Clarion-Limestone Lions.

"An ugly win is just as good as a pretty win, and we were able to keep battling and score more points than them, plain and simple," said Chris Dworek, Raider varsity coach.

After a combined 24 penalty flags and nine turnovers between both teams, the Brookville Raiders were able to outlast the Lions, who were hot on the comeback trail.

The board ultimately did not take any action on this proposal, apart from advising Mick Stormer, the evening’s spokesperson for and captain of the Brookville alumni football team, to resubmit the facility use form so that the board could review it at a later date, in a special meeting if need be.
