Seniors shutout juniors in Powderpuff game that raises funds for Detroit Dog Rescue

September 26, 2019

Five-year losing streak in Powderpuff.

 

Coach Geoff Wickersham and this team was determined to reverse that. 

 

After losing as juniors to the senior team the previous year, the senior powderpuff team and powderpuff organizer Wickersham had their eyes on the prize, defeating the juniors 12 to 0 on September 25.

The event itself won for all by raising spirit and funds for this year’s charity, Detroit Dog Rescue

 

Principal Embekka  Roberson changed the long standing rule that those participating in a fall sport cannot participate in the powderpuff game. This rule reversal allocated for the largest powderpuff team in history, 40 girls, and helped the seniors beat the juniors.

Senior Grace Silcox was one of those able to play and one of the leading scorers.  Silcox made a 30-yard run in the first half of the game.  Silcox also used the fakes she learned during practice and through Wickersham’s coaching to help the team win.  In the second half of the game, Silcox faked a  handoff as she and other senior running back Xiomara Walker blocked for senior Briyani Johnson. These blocks allowed for Johnson to gain yards and continue the seniors drive down the field.

Senior Lily Russell highlighted how having fall athletes on her team this year made a difference.

 

"Katie Lucken, a cross country runner, held down our defense with three tackles and was the only one to catch an interception. Defender and swimmer Eden Sherman started as inside linebacker and also had a handful of tackles. Olivia Yates, a golfer, played quarterback and had a handoff that resulted in a touchdown. Keller Kanat (cross country) and Sydney Yates (golf) were play makers on the offense as well. The addition of 7 fall athletes made a noticeable difference in our team. If they were all allowed to play last year, we definitely could have pulled off a win against the seniors," Russell said. 

 

The seniors running game dominated the offense, scoring the 2  touchdowns that helped Wickersham's team shutout the other team.
