Freshmen Too Much for Upper-Class Rivals – Again!

Lined up for battle Teams assemble for their inaugural Homecoming clash Colorfully tie-dyed, upper-class women huddle with their coachesThe first quarter of Friday’s Powder Puff Football Game started off much better for the upper-class women than it did for the guys the previous night … but, as intramural assistant Jeremy R. Bottorf notes, there is a reason why four quarters are played. Maggie Calkins connected on a pass to Jenna Harner to put the upperclassmen on the verge of scoring early in the first quarter. Calkins kept the ball on a quarterback keeper and quickly put her team up 7-0. Holli Schoch had a big run to set up the freshmen on the ensuing possession. Quarterback Sonya Lucy found Kayla Bossley on fourth down to tie the game at 7. Momentum swung in the freshmen’s favor and they were determined to not let it swing back. The first-year team recovered a fumbled snap on a punt and started with excellent field position. Lucy then connected with Sara Bailey for another freshmen touchdown to make the score 14-7. The upperclassmen scratched and clawed their way downfield, Bottorf said, but time expired with the freshman lead intact. The freshmen began the second half by intercepting a pass, but the upperclassmen held their own and no scoring took place in the third quarter. In the fourth, Lucy led the freshman offense to two more scores sneaking into the end zone for one and completing a pass to Brianna Savini for the other to make the final score 28-7. Bottorf (who also provided the photos) sends a “big thanks” to Dylan Lackey, Wyatt Decker, Chad Lasher, Matt Strayer, Ethan Kline, Larz Fernandez and Tommy Walton for game assistance, whether refereeing, running the clock or working the chains.
