The power…and the glory: Homecoming 2013

100213_Powderpuff1Girls from the Stillwater Area High School junior and senior classes took Pony Stadium by storm in the Powder Puff football game Monday night. The juniors conquered the seniors 22-14 in a game that was close throughout and threatened to go into overtime until the juniors stopped the seniors on fourth down late in the game. The teams were cheered on by fans who showed their “Pony Pride” to support their players.
