This year's game at Arnold Field on Wednesday, Sept. 28 featured 57 girls with the seniors and freshmen clobbering the juniors and sophomores 28-6. Both teams came out ready for combat. Each team practiced for a week before the game working on plays such as "the wedge," slant passes, double reserves, Statue of Liberty, double handoffs and Miami Dolphin-like laterals following completed passes. "This is big stuff," said seniorfreshmen coach Gary Spafford at halftime. "The girls are pumped and came out here to win. There's no letting up until the final whistle." Four-year powder puff standout Jill Neuenschwander and Darcy Miles of the seniorfreshmen team combined for three touchdowns to put the game away early. Neuenschwander scored on runs of 50 yards and 25 yards, while Miles rattled off a 45-yard run. The seniors and freshmen led 21-0 at the half. The middleclassmen noticebaly pumped entering the second half and seemingly ready to eat into the lead, but the seniors and freshmen turned up the defensive pressure and tacked on another score. Tasha Schantz caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Lindsay Smith in the fourth quarter. From then on, the juniors and sophomores posed no threat, but managed to score during the final seconds, when quarterback Mary Bianchini burrowed across the goal line on a two-yard sneak. Senior kicker Brooke Bauer was 4-for-4 on extra-point attempts. Spafford, who improve his powder-puff coaching record to 3-1-1, coached with Kevin English, while Rich Robles and Devin Crosby directed the middleclassmen. Tony Wynn and Steve Robertson were the officials. The class of 1995 players have never lost a powder puff game.
