PHOTOS: Sixth annual Powder Puff Football game at Concord High School

  • Rachel Stevenson, 17, jumps up to celebrate the game-tying touchdown while running back to her team in the sixth annual Concord High School Powder Puff football game on Wednesday night, September 25, 2013 at the school's gym. The game pits girls from the senior class in a flag football match against a team of underclass girls. The event is a senior fundraiser scheduled for the week of the school's homecoming game to also help raise some spirit. After one overtime, the game's referees, one of whom was Principal Gene Connolly, decided to call it a tie. <br/><br/>(ANDREA MORALES / Monitor staff)

On Wednesday night, girls from Concord High School’s senior class geared up in black athletic gear and smeared on the war paint for a football game against underclass girls in what has become a homecoming week tradition. For the last six years, the Powder Puff football game has served as a senior class fund raiser and a spirit rally of sorts full of boisterous cheers and goofing around.
