The annual Powderpuff game always seems to bring out the competitiveness of the female student body, and this year did not disappoint as the seniors came away with a dominating 36-8 victory.

The seniors had a lot on the line as they were looking to come back from a 20-12 loss in last years game.

“You could see it from the very first day of practice. These girls were ready to come back from last years loss and kick some ass, and that’s just what they did.” said Senior coach Kyle Plummer on the big victory.

It almost amazed me. I didn’t think it would be that easy”

The Juniors won the toss and elected to receive the ball. Their first offensive series was shut down quickly as they failed to get a first down and turned the ball over to a very loaded senior offense.

The Seniors wasted no time, driving 50 yards and scoring on a 15-yard Alainna Nevling run.  It only took the Seniors four plays to complete the drive.

“It almost amazed me. I didn’t think it would be that easy,” said senior offensive coordinator Brandon Loose. 

Late in the first quarter Senior Lea Crofcheck took it in from 15 yards out to widen the lead to 14-0.

However, the Juniors answered on the next possession as Olivia Barr took a pitch around the outside for the easy score closing the lead to only six after she converted the two-point conversion.

The Seniors took possession of the ball with only 1:56 remaining in the second quarter. With their high power offense, they were able to punch it in as time expired and take a 22-8 lead into the half.

The second half was all Seniors. They held the Juniors to under 80 yards of total offense and didn’t allow a point. Along with the stellar defensive play, the offense was able to reach paydirt two more times, from Lea Crofcheck and Emily Fusco.

“We played hard every play, which is the main reason why we played so good. You could just feel the Juniors slowly dying out on that field, and we didn’t let up,” said Senior Emily Lehman on the defense.

All of the little things need to be fixed and our offensive playbook needs improved big time. Our numbers also should be up next year”

The final score was 36-8 with the Seniors coming out on top.

The Juniors will look to rebuild in the offseason and come back harder and better next year.

“We need to work on our mechanics next year. All of the little things need to be fixed and our offensive playbook needs improved big time. Our numbers also should be up next year.” said Junior Paige Hunter on how to improve for next seasons big game.

The player’s production was not the only thing to blame for the Juniors being blown out.

“The coaching staff needs to be on the page next year. This years performance will never be acceptable,” said Junior coach Aric Reader.

The Seniors will cherish this forever. As for the Juniors, they will have one final shot to take home a W.
