Homecoming 2023: Seniors win annual Powderpuff football game for the third year in a row 15-14

After the Homecoming parade, junior and senior girls compete in a game of flag football Wednesday, Sept. 20.

The senior class won the annual Powderpuff game against the junior class Wednesday, Sept. 20. The game took place on the football field after the Homecoming parade. 

The juniors had two touchdowns and the seniors had one. However, the seniors were given an extra seven points, one for each of the junior practices. In the last few minutes the score was 14-14, but because junior coach Hank Danielson was on the field the entire game the seniors were given an extra point, making the winning score 15-14.  

The juniors tried to step up their game by holding seven practices, which is way more than the normal amount. Junior Emma Mahoney was grateful for the seven practices. 

“I couldn’t attend all of the practices, but from the practices I did attend it was pretty heavy duty,” Mahoney said. “The coaches really put us through it, but at the end of the day, it really paid off.”

Sharing her takeaway of the night, senior Brooklyn Lafon explained her thoughts.

“The seniors are better than the juniors and will always win no matter the circumstance,” Lafon said. “I chose to play to interact with my peers at school, but not in a school setting way.”

Coach senior Jack Fulcher reflected on the game as a whole. 

“We played our best and came away with a win and that’s all that matters. I also do think that the game gives spirit to the seniors,” Fulcher said. “The juniors can say that they won, but the scoreboard says otherwise.”

Overall, Mahoney felt thankful for her team for pushing her to succeed. 

“I’d just like to give a huge shout out to my coaches to put me into the correct mindset,” Mahoney said. “I’d also like to give a huge shout out to my teammates for being the community I need to really persevere on and off the field.”
