Seniors Dominate, Win Powder Puff 30-0

Image
On Thursday night, the annual Powder Puff game was held. No game was held last year due to the pandemic, meaning that both the Junior and Senior teams were going in inexperienced. With the homecoming king being crowned at halftime, the stage was set for an amazing night. The Seniors started off fast, with Jenna Daveler and Molly Bucher breaking off touchdown runs in the first quarter to give the elders a 14 point advantage. In the second quarter, Daveler found a wide-open Maggie Visniski, who made a man miss on her way to an 87-yard touchdown reception. Towards the end of the half, the Juniors finally looked like they had a chance to score. However, the clock ran out, and the Seniors went into the break with a 22-0 lead.  Out of eight possible candidates, Nick del Grande was selected as homecoming king. The other candidates were Isaiah Parido, Chad Royer, Bennett Stoltzfus, Payton Cunningham, Owen Filson, Andrew Reidenbaugh, and Grant Beiler. The homecoming queen was crowned at the hal

  “They kind of punched us in the mouth” Seven minutes into the game, the Pioneers were on early upset alert to the 2-4 Spartans. Garden Spot QB Tristin Sadowski broke off a huge scramble for a touchdown, and four-and-a-half star kicker Walker Martin boomed a 42 yarder through the uprights.  The punting game was the root of the trouble for the Pioneers. Out of the first three punts, two went for less than 20 yards and the other was blocked and returned for a touchdown.  Just as the realization of the possible upset set in, the Pioneers flipped the game right around. With 8 minutes left in the half, Berkeley Wagner dropped back and evaded an army of Spartans charging towards him to find a wide-open Beau Heyser in the corner of the endzone. Both Giovanni Malatesta and Heyser found the endzone in the remainder of the half, with the latter being another one of his signature leaping grabs.  Head coach Victor Ridenour was proud of how his team responded in the face of danger. “They did a gre
