The Clarke County High School female athletes clashed in the 2010 Powder-Puff football classic last night. The senior class used wet field conditions and a steady rain to overcome the junior class in a 30 – 0 shutout.
In a pattern that repeated throughout the night, the senior girls scored on each of their five possessions. Even more noteworthy, the seniors scored four times on the first possession of the series.
Seniors Chelsea “Half” Nelson, Meredith Roberts and Casey Canterbury together established a running game that the junior girls simply were unable content with.
A large crowd turned out to cheer for the powder-puffs despite the wet weather. Umbrellas were visible both on and off the field. The Clarke County Pep Band treated fans to an endless, but beautifully inspiring, loop of Tommy Tutone’s “8675309 Jenny” throughout much of the second half of the game.
It is not known whether the Tommy Tutone melody contributed to the junior’s loss, however, many junior players could be seen dancing to the tune both before, during and after plays.
The 2010 Powder-Puff football game was a senior class fundraising event.
The Eagles footballs team hosts East Rockingham tonight with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Feltner field.
Homecoming activities conclude tomorrow with the Homecoming Dance in the CCHS gym from 8:00 – 11:00 p.m.
