From cheerleaders, volleyball players and basketball players, the junior and senior girls got together to play a game of two-hand-touch football on Monday during Homecoming week and it was a very competitive game.

At the beginning of the game, the junior girls took the lead with two early touchdowns. The seniors were struggling, dropping several passes. The juniors had a feeling that would take home the win, something that had never happened before.

The game would eventually come down to a “next touchdown wins the game,” despite the fact that the juniors were winning at the time. Unfortunately for the juniors (and luckily for the seniors), the seniors scored and claimed victory.

“It sucked that they cheated,” said Gabby Hudson, a junior.

“We didn’t cheat, we played good,” said Fayth Springer, a senior.

The seniors feel it was a fair game, but the juniors feel they should be able to claim victory.

Either way, it was a lot of fun for both sides.
