— The Burghers' scoring victory was remarkable, considering three talented starters were sidelined with injuries — Malachai Prosser, Tyler Wilcox and Tevor Baker.

Perrone, who executed the plays that caught the opposition off-guard, deferred credit to others.

"I knew from the start we were really clicking," he said in the third quarter, sporting a wide grin. "Our line started to really push forward in the game — our success was really about the line."

Gulping Gatorade soon after barging past defenders for a sack, Danny Ackley said the 2012 Burgher squad is dedicated to teamwork — no individual player is seeking superstar status.

"We're fighting really hard and we're playing like a family," he said. "There's no 'I' on the team."
