The 2019 Powder-Puff game surprised us all. Although even though the Juniors feared they would lose, they held onto the glimmer of hope until the end.  

“I feel like we have a chance, a minimal one, but…” said Eleanor Pederson.

Each player gave the game their best, and it paid off. At halftime, the juniors led 12-8.

Then things changed.

Maybe it was the beat of “All-Star” that the band was playing. Or maybe it was Jenna Gootee’s inspirational words to the seniors, “If you don’t know what’s going on-just do it 100% anyway.”

The seniors raise the cheering to a new level in the second half.

Regardless of the reason, the seniors gained their footing in the second half and took the win. The final score was juniors 26, seniors 30.
