BROOKVILLE — The matchup isn't exactly David versus Goliath, but after knocking off the regular season Federation League champion — the DuBois Rockets — the Sykesville Senators, who finished the season 10-10 as the No. 4 seed, are gearing up to take on the regular season's No. 2-seeded Brookville Grays in the Fed League finals.

The Grays finished the season with a 15-5 record — identical to the Rockets' record — but with DuBois being crowned league champion, both teams earned byes into the semi-finals and had to await their opponents.
