The NSSA Double Header kicked off on the Eastside at Pleasure Point Saturday and then moved over to the Westside Sunday in the Northwest Open Season. In Juniors action, 12-year-old Brogie Panesi proved himself against his older rivals for the second time this season with another victory in the upper level age bracket.  Panesi, who also earned a big Juniors victory in the season opener at Pacifica, defeated older brother Kadin at Pleasure Point by a final score of 13.5 -11.5.  On Sunday Brogie nailed a 2nd in the Boys div. and 3rd in the Jrs. div. while battling overcrowded weekend traffic at Steamers.
