EHS students gathered together in the freezing cold on September 30 for the annual bonfire and powder puff football game. Pepperoni balls, candy bars, and chips were sold, along with some nice hot chocolate to keep everyone warm. The cheerleaders also prepared a dance like they do every year, and after the game, the football players had to learn a cheer and preform it in front of the crowd. The weather was definitely not on our side, but a lot of people showed up to witness the two teams battle it out on the field.
Louie Head and Jacob Hamilton formed two teams of girls to play an intense game of powder puff football. Hamilton’s team took the lead first with a touchdown run by freshman athlete, Delaney Nizzi. Head’s team caught up almost immediately with a pass thrown by Abby Lundmark to Emily Mcjunkin, tying up the two teams. It was all over when Hayleigh Hishman kicked a field goal, winning Jacob’s team the game. As the game ended, the sophomores, juniors, and seniors on the football team were separated by the cheerleaders to be taught a cheer and preform it in front of everyone. The sophomores went first, followed by the juniors, and then the seniors. The crowd was to determine who had won the cheer-off, and it ended with the seniors getting the loudest applause.
Even after everyone suffered through the cold night, they were all rewarded with the raging fire that was lit by Patrick Hamilton. People stayed for a while to warm up next to the fire, and take group pictures nearby. As they all left the school, everyone seemed to be pumped for the upcoming events of Homecoming weekend.
