On October 3, 2014 Temple Christian had their annual Powder Puff football game. The first game was the junior girls against the female teachers. The juniors came out with an easy victory and a score of 0 to 21. In round two, the sophomores took on the juniors. It was a close game. The sophomores were up 7 points with 10 seconds left in the game. Rebecca High, one of the juniors, received the touchdown and both teams tied at 21 points. The sophomores then went up against the teachers and the sophomores won with 14 to 14. The teachers cheated to receive a touchdown. After this game, the juniors and sophomores participated in the championship round. The score was intense. It was 14 against 7, but the sophomores came out triumphant against the juniors.

The sophomores were the over all champions for 2014 Power Puff Football!

“It was an experience that I didn’t expect because it was so intense, energetic, and the crowd grabbed your attention. It felt like we were at a football stadium. It wasn’t stressful at all. I was able to be with my team and face the other classes. That was very competitive, but it was a good time to get to know each other.”-Sabrina Cimminillo (junior)

“It was my first year, but it was a good bonding experience with the teachers even through everyone thought we cheated. We fought a good fight!”-Mrs. Welch (High School English teacher)
