BUHS Seniors Win 26-0
Homecoming 2015 is underway at Bishop Union High School. The festivities kicked off in grand fashion Monday night with the traditional Powder Puff football game pitting the Junior girls vs the Senior Girls. The Seniors make quick work of the Juniors winning 26-0.
Senior Quarterback Kristy Dohnel (a star on the BUHS soccer team) started the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown run. Following a quick 4 and out by the Junior offense the Seniors added to their lead with a 4-yard touchdown run by Ritz Garcia, also a standout on the Bronco soccer team. ASB president Katie Doonan nailed the point after kick putting the Seniors on top 13-0.
Senior Track and Field standout Selena Duenas scored the third senior touchdown racing around the junior defense. Doonan drilled the point after making the halftime score 20-0.
The strong senior defensive effort continued in the second half with great play from Kristy Dohnel, Maria Jimenez, Audrey Bear, Katrina Biehl, and Cienna Martinez. Martinez picked off a Junior pass in the second half dashing any hopes of a Junior comeback.
The halftime show featured the Powder Puff cheerleaders William Moore, Carson Reid, Bailey Nolan, Holden McIndoo, Joel Talamantes, and Andy Watt. Their stunning, high flying halftime show entertained the crowd but also drew a penalty flag from volunteer referees Lee Cox and Eddie Davis.
