Seniors celebrate their win over the Juniors, Oct. 21.

After multiple reschedules due to weather the annual Powderpuff game was finally played this Tuesday, Oct. 22.

The seniors were off to a good start when  Justine Luze, quarterback, scored the game’s first touchdown, giving the seniors a 7-0 lead over the juniors.

Then with just over 13 minutes left in the half  the juniors turned the ball over on downs.

This then gave the seniors another opportunity to put points on the board, and they did just that.

The juniors had the ball once again and for the second time could not put a scoring drive together, giving the seniors possession.

The seniors marched down the field and again capitalized on this possession with a rushing touchdown by Brittney Robinson with just under a minute left in the first half.

“Brittney is a really great  player,” Rachel Brewer, senior wide receiver, said. “She really helped our team tonight.”

The seniors went in at half with a 21-0 lead over the juniors.

Halftime entertainment was brought to fans by the Golden Guys who performed their dance routine at midfield.

The juniors then started with possession of the ball after halftime and, as before, could not answer to the seniors’ barrage of points.

The seniors then took over on offense, three minutes into the second half, and turned the ball over on the fourth.

This led to Kaylen Sapp’s reception for a touchdown finally putting the juniors on the board.

With the seniors now on offense Brittney Robinson was given the ball once again and furthered the seniors’ lead with 59.2 seconds left in the game.

In the final 55 seconds of the game the juniors threw an interception, giving the senior offense another last-second chance to pad their 28-7 lead.

With the ball down at the spot of the interceptions the seniors gave the ball to Gabby James who rushed for yet another senior touchdown.

“We should of worked on our defense a little more,” Megan Beaman, junior corner, said. ” But despite our loss I think everyone had fun.”

The seniors were yet again victorious over the juniors in a 35-7 victory.
