Freshmen win powderpuff in upset fashion

Adrian Sadiku

The class of 2027 certainly lit up the Powderpuff Games, demonstrating their talent and tenacity as they earned three outstanding victories over the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Lila Megysei was the Most Valuable Player for the freshman as she scored 4 touchdowns and was a threat on the defensive side of the ball as well. 

In the first game of the night, the freshmen took on the sophomores. The freshmen were first on the scoreboard. After halftime and down 11, the sophomores were not giving up. With a late score by Harper Barnhart, the sophomores were still in the game until the freshmen ran the clock out. Number 6, Megyesi provided all of the points for the freshman team as she scored a touchdown and nailed a 42-yard field goal. The game ended with a score of 11-6 with the freshman over the sophomores.

The juniors came into the next game confident, but their confidence was short-lived as the freshmen scored within minutes, and then scored again—and then again. Lilly Diaz was the first to reach the endzone for the freshman team in game 2 followed by Megysei who then scored 2 more touchdowns and booted the extra points through the uprights. The Juniors lost by a score of 24-0. When asked about the game, Junior coach Maurice Tyler replied, “They just better.” 

Finally the most anticipated game of the night between the undefeated senior class versus the freshmen. This game was a nail-biter from beginning to end. The score was dead set at 0-0 at the end of regulation leading to overtime. The freshmen struck first in just 3 plays with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Megyesi. Then the freshman defense then came up clutch with the stop at the 5-yard line sealing their upset victory over the defending champs and the entire school. When asked about the strategies used by the freshmen, Senior Grace Usher responded, “They fake snapped the ball and most of us were called off sides.” This caused a 5 yard penalty and resulted in the Freshmen being closer to the end zone.
