UNION COUNTY — Union County High School’s annual Powder Puff football game ended in a tie.
The annual Powder Puff football game — seniors vs. juniors — ended in a 7-7 tie in double overtime Monday evening.
During the game which was postponed from last Wednesday due to rain, girls of the 11th and 12th grades — coached by UCHS varsity football players — battled on the gridiron, going into two separate overtimes in an attempt to break the tie.
“It was a great night,” said assistant principal Jeanelle Gilliam. “Everyone had a ball and is anticipating a tie breaker game to follow. Not sure if that will happen or not, but you never know!”
Homecoming Sponsor/PBIS Chairperson Sonya Glenn also hinted that those involved would like to see a Part Two of the intense Powder Puff rivalry.
“This was a highly anticipated game,” Glenn said, adding that the two teams had been talking trash to each other in fun for two weeks. “There is a lot of competition between them.”
Powder Puff football players practiced Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for two weeks in preparation for the game. Principal Floyd Lyles and faculty members served as officials.
