Powder Puff football only happens once a year, but the anticipation for the rigorous game lasts all year long. And this year’s game did not disappoint.

The football teams sponsor the Powder Puff game each year as a fundraiser. Girls from all four years are allowed to join and are even encouraged to play so that Charter Oak can have the best game possible. Usually, the seniors play the juniors, and a few years ago a soph-frosh game was added.

Even though the game was initially pushed back a week because not enough juniors signed to play. The game eventually had the underclassmen facing off against upperclassmen. Since there was not much time to train and practice, it was hard to determine which team was going to win; it could be anyone’s game.

The game had an exciting start, with neither side knowing how the game was going to turn out and who was going to win. People cheering for the lowerclassmen and people cheering for the upperclassmen were scattered around the bleacher, extending as much support as they could from the sidelines. Parents, family and friends were there on the edge of their seats, just waiting for the next touchdown from either side.

“I think I did all right. It’s hard to judge since it isn’t a season sport; it’s only once,” said Morgan Peterson, junior. “I think as whole we did amazing because we pulled it all together before the game. The fact that we all worked together was great.”

In the end, the lower class men won the game, getting compliments from everyone on how great they were in the game. “We thought we were going to lose because the underclassmen looked more put together,” said Morgan. This just goes to show how age has nothing to do with strength.
