On Monday, Oct. 9, on the football field of KHS, class fought against class as the girls put on their war paint to play a game of good, old-fashioned football.

The juniors and sophomores will face off Thursday, Oct. 12, in the championship game during school. The game was originally scheduled for Oct. 11, but it was moved because of forecasts for rain.

Juniors vs. Freshmen

The first game of the night proved to be a real treat as the juniors challenged the freshmen. The juniors crushed the freshmen 33-19 and led throughout the game.

Junior Aryiana Laney led her team and made three touchdowns during the game.

The juniors were confident about their skill on the field and had no problem going up against the freshmen.

Junior Makenzie Boillat wasn’t afraid of the underclassmen.

“It was rough and it got pretty dirty out there,” Boillat said. “They were freshmen, though, so I was like, ‘Yeah, we got it.'”

Freshman Isabella Baltosser was nervous to go out on the field against the older players.

“It was very nerve-wracking in the beginning,” Baltosser said, “but once I got out there it was better. They were older than me and they had more experience, so I was afraid I was going to get out there and not do my job.”

Seniors vs. Sophomores

In the second game, the seniors and the sophomores went head-to-head. The sophomores led throughout the game and dominated the seniors 28-6.

The seniors had a rough time accepting some of the calls made by the referees but found that it was still a fun game after all.

Senior Maikayla Josling participated in the game for both her first and last time this year.

“It was very interesting,” Josling said. “In the end, when it didn’t matter anymore, it was fun.”

Autumn Lay, sophomore, was excited to have won.

“It felt good to beat the seniors,” Lay said. “I wasn’t too confident (about winning) because if you’re too cocky you won’t win.”
