Powder Puff Game

Chaparral High School continues its Powder Puff tradiation for the seventh year and seniors maintain their grip on the Powder Puff trophy for the seventh time. “Schools have been playing Powder Puff football for homecoming week at least since Ms. Pranses was in high school,” said Chris Sanchez or how he prefers to be called “El Capitan.”
Sanchez was one of the four administrators in charge of making the Powder Puff game possible. Sanchez along with Helena Palacios coached the underclassmen girls while Ron Richman and Thomas Waldmann coached the senior girls. According to Sanchez the purpose of this game was, “To give girls at our school a chance to learn a little bit more about the game of football and to show some school spirit.” Any girl could have joined; all they had to do was sign up and show up to practice.
Other people involved included senior quarterback Roy Lopez and middle linebacker Alex Genis as assistant coaches for the senior team. Genis coached the defense and Lopez coached the offense. “The goal we are planning to accomplish is, to beat underclassmen, to have fun in the process and to keep the streak alive,” said Genis.
The game lasted two 20-minute halves, and the seniors won 14-0, to extend the win streak to seven. The senior girls have won every single game since the school first opened its doors seven years ago.
The senior coaches and players were very happy with the outcome, while the coach of the underclassmen side had a little something to say, “The referees need to know the difference between a fumble and a touchdown, but overall we all had a great time,” said “El Capitan.”
