The Jeannette Hawks 12U midget football team will return to Canton, Ohio, on Friday to play in the National Youth Championship at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Jeannette, which defeated a team from Detroit on Dec. 1, will play the winner of the Georgia Elite and Arkansas Dawgs game at 3:30 p.m. The teams from Georgia and Arkansas play at 11 a.m.

If the Hawks win, they will advance to Saturday's semifinals. The championship game is at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Noah Sanders scored on Jeannette's first offensive play of the game, a 35-yard run, and the Hawks rolled to a 34-6 victory against the Detroit Mounties. Sanders and Jaydin Canady each scored two touchdowns for the Hawks (12-0). Tyler Horn scored the fifth touchdown, catching a 45-yard pass from Brad Birch.

The team is coached by Joe Cononico.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
