Powderpuff Recap: Junior Perspective

After a devastatingly 32-14 loss that the Juniors had to take from the Seniors, we all have one question: What happened? 

To talk about the game in review, from the first set of downs, it was apparent that parents were considering whether Juniors “had ever seen a football before” due to the loss of understanding when the Seniors started playing. Cadey Mettler, the Senior quarterback, scored the first touchdown through the Juniors confusion. Confusion being not knowing what to do from the Juniors defensive side. I shouldn’t really be writing this article because maybe I’m the only one confused, but not knowing the rules of football is hard. Although a few of the juniors found it confusing to know when to run, when not to, what type of play we were doing, when the ball starts, what to do if the ball didn’t start but someone stepped, why that matters, when to block, what blocking even is…

When asked how he felt the game went, Gordon Jones, one of the Junior coaches, said: “My biggest priority was scoring at least once, getting on the board and not getting shut out which we accomplished.”

 It was definitely just a game for fun. Regardless, some Juniors still achieved highlights like Alexa Smith, scoring the first touchdown. For the Juniors, even though they were down by possibly a few points, the team was ecstatic that they could meet their goal.

It was rumored that the Senior’s football coach, Jeffery Quieroga, said that this set of Seniors was “the best group he’s ever seen.” But Seniors only practiced four times and only for half an hour. Grace Simpson, one of the star players for the Seniors, played for almost the entire game, scoring 3 touchdowns throughout the game.

It’s good to remind everyone that the game was just for fun.

Mr. Jones, when asked about the best part of the game, says: “The best part for me was seeing everyone having so much fun and enjoying themselves.” Many Juniors will remember this game as a hard-to-swallow loss but also a night to remember.
