On a chilly night in September, junior and senior girls took the field for the annual powder puff football game. The seniors lost last year to the class of 2011 and were looking for some revenge. Being the more populated class, the seniors were favored in this game.

However on their opening drive, they stumbled a little. After stopping the seniors on the first drive of the game, the juniors scored on their first drive.

A rushing touchdown by Emily Snider and a failed two point conversion left the juniors ahead 6 to 0.

That would be the only touchdown scored by the juniors. After a shaky start by quarterback Emily Stoakes, the seniors turned to their running game lead by Paige Thompson.

She rushed for two touchdowns and two point conversions.

A combination of Emily Stoakes and Emily Dinsdale at quarterback lead the passing attack. Addi Kickbush was the main target with one touchdown to go along with a whopping eight catches. Emily Stoakes found Emily Dinsdale in the back of the endzone as time expired for the seniors 28-6 victory.

The seniors scored 28 unanswered points. Their defensive improvement after giving up a touchdown on the first drive can be credited to the coaching of Brady Billerbeck, Andy Meyers, Colby Luethje, Parker Bolt, and others.
