When the boys pick up the clipboards and the girls take the field, it becomes obvious that it is time for the annual Powderpuff game. 

Powderpuff is a flag football game played during the fall, where boys coach the girls in a matchup between the juniors and the seniors. 

On Oct. 24, the two classes went up against each other for an intense game. This ended up with a junior loss, a final score of 38-0. 

“The seniors definitely had a better feeling about the game than we did. I feel like right off the bat they knew that they were going to win and we let that take over for us,” said junior Ella Hutfless. “We tried to keep it positive but they rubbed it in our face a bit.” 

Even though the juniors didn’t secure a victory, they did play their hardest with their mindset and their plays. 

“[We wanted] to be competitive against the seniors… Go out, do some unexpected plays, and go out and try to win,” said junior coach AJ Braun. 

There seems to be a low level of confidence from the juniors team, which might have led to their downfall. The seniors displayed a seemingly intimidating front. 

“I wasn’t expecting much but I thought we would score at least once. But it was still fun,” said Braun. 

The seniors had a positive outlook on the game. While winning was the goal, they still had fun. The success felt even better. 

It was good to get a win my last year

“It was good to get a win my last year,” said senior Susanna Kastl. “It was a good game but I’m glad the seniors ended on top.” 

The game symbolizes more for the seniors than just a win, but almost a last hoorah. 

“Winning the game felt necessary because it is the last time that we will have a chance to play the game. Winning was super important and it felt really good,” said Kastl. 

Luckily, the juniors will get another chance next year. They hopefully will be able to get a victory as seniors. 

“I will do it again because I want to win next year since we’ll be seniors. I think we’ll have a really good group,” said Huftless. 

This need for the juniors to prove themselves has also relayed to the coaching staff. They have expressed similar feelings of redemption. 

“We’ve talked about going out again, trying to win, and beat the juniors next year,” said Braun.
