Move Over Boys: Powderpuff Football Hits the Gridiron
For the first time since Covid, the powderpuff game between the junior and senior girls on Monday night ended with a surprising score.
In the first quarter, junior Eva Weaver (#21) scores the first touchdown with the time at 3:20. Moments later Morgan Dondero (#22) scores another 2 two points for the juniors with the score now at 8 – 0. Coaches for the seniors call multiple timeouts throughout the game when Idalia Jimenez (#48) scores a touchdown for the seniors in the second quarter.
The game continues with the juniors scoring left and right till the last quarter when the seniors desperately try to keep up with the score at 16 – 8. Finally, at the last 23 seconds of the game, the seniors pull through and the game ends with a tie at 16 – 16. The excited fans and families that filled the stands ran to the field to congratulate the players.
After Monday night’s powderpuff, game everyone was pumped and ready for the 5th annual Ironman volleyball game hosted by Bishop High’s Spanish teacher Linda Frigerio.
