Powder Puff: The Battle of the Grades

Sanjay Patel
After a long night, the senior players, cheerleaders, and coaches celebrate by hoisting the Powder Puff trophy.

As Spring Break comes right around the corner, so is Cypress Creek High School’s Spring Howl week. This is a week of celebration, with dress up days, a pep rally, and the much-anticipated Powder Puff Football Game. In this game, roles become reversed, as girls play flag football while the boys cheer their classes on. The evening had three games, the first being between senior and freshman classes, the second between junior and sophomore classes, and the third being a championship game between the two winning teams. These games would be played in two 30-minute halves, with a five-minute halftime. 

At 6 p.m. on March 6, the games commenced, with the Class of 2024 in white starting on offense and the Class of 2027 in pink on defense. This first game was a blowout, with the seniors valiantly claiming victory over the freshmen, winning 25-7. 

The seniors rushed the field as they celebrated their very important first victory. The sophomore cheerleading team then flipped into action as the men performed tricks and wowed the crowd with their dance moves. 

Once the cheerleaders cleared the field, the second game was underway, with the juniors taking on the sophomores. It was a run-heavy game, with incredible displays of defense on both sides, but the juniors pulled through with the victory, winning 19-13. 

To celebrate their games, the freshman and senior cheerleaders took the field. First, the freshmen amazed the crowd with their dance moves, followed by the senior cheerleaders putting on a display of athleticism, cheering and dancing to a mashup of songs. 

As the sun set on the evening, the long-awaited championship game was underway. As the opening buzzer sounded and the ball was snapped, the seniors took an easy lead, scoring on their first drive. The rest of the game was a defensive battle, with both sides making crucial stops to keep the game close. The seniors’ willpower and determination eventually came out on top, and as the final seconds wound down, the senior sideline counted along. The time struck zero and the seniors rushed the field. The Class of 2024 had continued their winning streak, shutting out the juniors 13-0. As the stadium lights shone down on them, they hoisted their trophy high, flipping with excitement. 

Even though the seniors were the only ones to go home with a trophy, it was still an exciting night for all the classes, and a fun way to relax right before Spring Break.
