On Monday night’s Powderpuff game, the Senior class came out victorious with a 12-6 win.

Player number zero on the Senior team, Madisen Riopel recounted the feeling of the first touchdown of the game.

“Joy overcame us, it was a magical moment,” Riopel said.

Both touchdowns scored for the Seniors were made by Taylor Wesley, one of the team’s quarterbacks..

Junior player number eighteen Emma Hanna described her team’s touchdown as a sort of Hail Mary.

“Everyone was super excited that we were now tied with the Seniors,” Hanna said.

The game was also not really what Hanna had expected. She said some of the plays got fairly dirty, as both teams were fighting to win. There was even a moment in the third quarter where a girl’s shirt was actually torn off. Hanna knew that it would get rough, just not that rough.

Riopel said that the game was more exciting than she had imagined it to be. However, according to Riopel, this surprise wasn’t due to lack of preparation. The coaches of the team were very constructive when working with the girls for the weeks leading up to the big night.

“I thought [Thomas Vandermolen] was the head coach,” Riopel said.

Riopel thought Vandermolen was able to explain the aspects of the plays and overall game to the girls in an effective way. The team even had a few secret plays up their sleeves. One such play was faking a pass to one person, when actually handing off the ball to a completely different teammate.

The most influential coach for Hanna, however, was Dawson Clancy. He coached her position.

“[Clancy] was the one that mostly took charge and definitely organized it the most.” Hanna said.

Riopel said the whole team was surprised when the Juniors scored a touchdown for the tie, however. The girls had such a strong defense for most of the game, but the Reagan Wisser found a gap in the Defensive line, scoring the only touchdown for the Juniors.

When the game ended after going into overtime, the Seniors celebrated. The crowd in the stands charged.

Yelling and leaping with victory. Riopel found herself in the dead center of all of this commotion and described it to be an amazing moment and a memory that will last forever.
