On November 13, 2013 the annual Powder puff game began under the lights at Lenzner Field. With high winds and temperatures below freezing, the girls never gave up and still kept going on to the final minute. Each team played their best efforts but, unfortunately there can only be one winner. While the score remained close a remainder of the game, the black team (sophomores and seniors) came out with a stunning victory. Touchdowns were scored by soccer players Carly Stewart and Thanna Oddo. The black team defeated the red team 28-14.
This game comes together every year thanks to Mrs. Reilsano who organizes the fundraiser for the sophomore class. “It was way more successful than it ever has been,” Reilsano said. “We are trying to organize another game in the spring officiated by adults that have played flag football accurately, because a lot of the boys that officiated were friends with people on the team and, it can become chaotic but overall it was a huge success”, said Mrs. Reilsano.
All the coaches are football players and leading the pack of the black team was Levi Donovan and Colin Hunt while coaching the red team was John Gould and James Busbee. Levi Donovan was questioned on whether he thought his team was successful or not by saying “it can be shown on the scoreboard that we were very successful and our goal was to win and we won”.
Several spectators showed up to watch the girls play even in the bitter cold, sophomore Logan Brink commented on the girls game by saying “they came to play and I was surprised at how good they actually can play football. So overall, a lot of effort was put into a great game.”
