One week from tomorrow, the 2017 Uvalde High School girls’ flag football classic, Powder Puff MMXVII, is set to be played in the Honey Bowl.
Competition between the UHS Class of 2017 girls and the UHS Class of 2018 girls is scheduled to begin at approximately 6 p.m.
Sponsored by the UHS Student Council, the sporting event will cost fans $5 each for admission.
Proceeds from this year’s game will benefit the UHS Student Council.
Though the format for this year’s game has yet to be formalized, the format for last year’s game was two 20-minute halves with a running clock.
Each team received three timeouts each half.
Last season, the Class of 2016 girls downed the Class of 2017 girls in a 20-6 UHS Powder Puff football thriller.
With their win, the UHS Class of 2016 girls became only the third team in the history of the Uvalde Powder Puff football classic to win two games.
Prior to their win last May, the Class of 2016 team posted a 16-14 victory in the 2015 contest.
Historically speaking, UHS senior class teams have won the majority of games in this series.
Since 1998, the seniors have won 14 games, the juniors have won three games, and three games have ended in a tie.
In last year’s game, Seniors running back Felicia Vasquez scored on a 31-yard touchdown run.
The other two touchdowns by the Seniors came on a 19-yard pass from quarterback Morgan Henderson to running back Payton Redfearn and a two-yard run by Henderson.
Running back Valarie Salazar scored for the Juniors on a 52-yard touchdown run.
