Who says, “playing like a girl” is a bad thing?
The senior girls had a face off with the juniors in a Charity Powder Puff flag football game last Thursday. It was the “Battle of the Bows,” and both teams played exceptionally well. After hours of practicing and learning plays, these girls wiped on their eye black and got prepared for the match-up of the year.
By participating in this game, the girls were not only a part of a great competition, but they were also raising money for the “Jesus Cares” program. This program assists in buying Christmas presents for those who can’t afford them.
So ultimately, it was a great football game, a great cause, and especially a great performance by our own male cheerleaders! Win, win, win am I right?
Our boys made sure to strut their stuff to an array of pop songs like Apple Bottom Jeans, Cyclone, and more! With various toe touches, stunts, and even a pyramid, our guys almost stole the show away from the fierce ladies on the field with their performance at halftime.
We can’t forget to give credit to the junior and senior coaches who took on the load of volunteering.
Handling over 40 girls is no easy task, and these brave young men were determined to transform these powder puff princesses into champions. After many rigorous practices, it was finally time for the game.
Starting the game off with a trick play, the seniors began strong. Relying on their all-star running backs, they were able to quickly put points on the board. However, the juniors would not lighten up on their intensity. With some impressive passes and maneuvering, these lioness cubs got points as well.
The seniors experienced continued success with their strategy. At the end of the 4th quarter, the overall score was 28-12; the class of 2015 took the win.
As someone who played in the game, I really enjoyed the quality time with the girls. It was a fantastic, competitive bonding experience, that I will never forget.
By the way, Juniors, better luck next year!
