On-Campus Team Dominates ‘Powder Puff Football’ Game

Bottorf (who also provided the photos), on-campus quarterback Michelle Goodling found Weber on a pass play to put the team up 7-0. Just as the rain threatened, so did the off-campus squad, starting a drive of its own only to turn over the ball on downs. Midway through the second quarter, the on-campus team reached into its bag of tricks: Amanda Allanah took the ball on a reverse and set up great field position; Stephania Karoullas then took the direct snap “to the house” to boost the score to 14-0 at halftime. The on-campus team was not done, however. Goodling came out with another beautiful pass to Weber to put the team up 21-0. A fired-up off-campus team began driving downfield, with coach Josh Wilson changing things up by going to a two-quarterback system involving Tiffany Deihm and Amanda Reedy. On a switch of its own, the on-campus team put in Alysia Brown at quarterback; she hooked up on a bomb to (who else?) Weber, to make the score 28-0. A few plays later, Weber again took a deflected ball into the end zone for the 35-0 final score. Assisting Wilson with the off-campus team were Jake Parsons and Shawn Bradley. The on-campus team was coached by Kyle Baker and assistants Brandon Haney and Allen Brown. Bottorf shared a “big thank you” to all the players; to Greg Solyak, Donnie Stevenson and Ben Vincent for refereeing; to Dylan Lackey and Chad Chervinsky for working the chains … and to Mother Nature, who kept the rain on the other side of the mountain until the game could be completed. Sign-ups for the Homecoming Powder Puff Football Game will begin in mid-September, he added.
