It was a hard-hitting night of Powder Puff football at Engel Field on Thursday, Sept. 19 as all four grade levels clashed in a series of contests.
The girls suited up for the touch football games, with boys serving as coaches.
In the opener, it was a hard fought 6-0 victory for the juniors over the sophomores, while in the second game, the senior girls held on for a 2-0 win over the freshmen. The only score in that game was a safety.
Utilizing a 10-minute running clock for each quarter, the teams also had five downs to move the ball and try for the score. There were no punts and, at least in the early games, scoring was hard to come by.
Hitting their stride in the finale, it was the junior girls who came out with the championship, shutting out the seniors by a 30-0 decision.
The annual Powder Puff trio of games serves as a fundraiser for the EHS track and field program.
