Members of the senior team celebrate their win in the powderpuff game.

The annual Powderpuff game was played on Wednesday, September 27th as it brought the highest scoring games in powderpuff history at North. Both underclass teams faced off at 5:45 p.m. and upper class teams played at 7:00 p.m.

All teams introduced new head coaches including one coach switching teams from last year. Team freshman was coached by Steve Wood and Beckett Dovel as team sophomores were coached by Ricky Crumble and Brian Frericks as both teams prepared 30 minutes before the game to warm up.

“Our goal was to overall have fun and just have a great time,” said sophomore coach Ricky Crumble. 

The sophomores started off hot, scoring three times straight away and walking into halftime with a 30-0 lead on the freshman. In the second half, both teams scored once ending with a final score of 38 to 6.

“We had a game plan and just used that the whole game and kept pushing even though we didn’t have a lot of players, so we made it work,” Crumble said. “Everyone focused, and they studied the plays and took practices seriously and they got better as the game progressed.”

As the underclassmen game came to an end, the upperclassmen game eventually started. Team juniors was coached by Juan Marquez and Eli Wyatt while team seniors were coached by Chris Filas and Martin Rocha. 

“The game plan heading into the game was to try and run the ball and be strong on defense,” said senior player Jada Kemp.

“Our main plan was to run the ball 100 percent because we had some fast players on our team,” said junior coach Eli Wyatt.

The game started off with a 70 yard touchdown run by Jada Kemp to pull the seniors up 8 to 0. The juniors responded the next drive with a touchdown of their own as the score was 15 to 6 seniors heading into halftime.

“Overall, I think I was playing well and tried my hardest whenever I got the ball,” Kemp said.

As the second half started, the seniors responded with five touchdowns of their own with two interceptions resulting in a final score of 48 to 6. With that score, the seniors made history at North by scoring the highest amount in a single game of powderpuff.

“My overall experience was very good, and I would recommend joining powderpuff to all incoming freshmen,” Kemp said.
