Senior’s lose to underclassmen
Householder Field at Seymour High School is usually quiet on Monday nights, after all, football is for Friday, right? Not this past Monday, the girls took the field in a game that pitted the senior’s against their rival junior classmates.
Not only did the girls switch positions on the field with the boys, turnabout was fair play, and the boys donned cheerleader outfits to form one of the homeliest squads in the history of high school football. They performed daring routines that included pyramid’s and drops from the top with skills not many have ever seen, and hopefully will never see again.
The game started with possessions with no scores, but the ball was moved well in spite of the officiating crew, made up of the Seymour Football team coaches.
The junior class struck first with a nice pass to make the game 6-0 after a failed two-point conversion. The senior’s weren’t to be outdone and marched down the field on their next possession as they made an end around run to even the score. The seniors missed their two-point conversion also and the game was 6-6 at the end of the first quarter.
The knife was thrust in the back of the seniors after the first play of the second quarter, the seniors kicked off and the juniors took the ball all the way down the field to make it 12-0 with only 30 seconds gone in the quarter. Once the juniors got the lead, there was no turning back the younger crew as they went on to win 24-12.
