The seniors took home the trophy for the annual Powderpuff football game Monday, Nov. 7, beating the juniors 24-6. The Powderpuff game is an annual event where the junior and senior girls compete in a game of flag football.

According to junior Emma Maddox, junior girls who wanted to play in the game were invited into a group message where they discussed important team information.

“We talked about shirts and the game time, we had two practices and now we are here,” Maddox said.

For seniors,  on the other hand, seniors who  wanted to play showed up at the actual game, according to senior Savannah Sunderman.

“Typically, it’s supposed to be organized, but really we just come out here [and play],” Sunderman said.

The first three quarters of the game were fairly dominated by the senior team, who scored 18 unanswered points to start. Then, in the fourth quarter, the juniors managed their first touchdown of night, which was quickly followed by another senior touchdown to end the game.

Overall, Sunderman was very pleased with how her team played.

“I think we did the best we could,” Sunderman said. “We could have been a little better on offence, but our defense was pretty good; we had two or three interceptions.”

Maddox also thought her team played well despite the tough loss.

“I think we played better than expected,” Maddox said. “I think I played better than I thought I was going to, [and] we got a touchdown so that was pretty good.”
