GENTRY — The ju­nior class won the an­nual pow­der­puff foot­ball tournament at Gentry High School, de­feat­ing the se­niors, 6-0, in over­time.

The tournament was played in Pioneer Sta­dium on the af­ter­noon of Oct. 3, with the boys serv­ing as cheer­lead­ers and the girls tak­ing to the grid­iron for the flag-foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Fin­ish­ing reg­u­la­tion time with no score in the ju­niors­e­nior cham­pi­onship game, each team was given four downs from the 20-yard line. The ju­niors scored a touch­down but failed in their ex­tra-point at­tempt, and the se­niors couldn’t quite get it done and fin­ished the game score­less.

In ear­lier games, the se­niors de­feated the fresh­men, 14-0, and the ju­niors de­feated the sopho­mores, 20-0, lead­ing up to the cham­pi­onship game be­tween the ju­nior and the se­nior girls.

The ju­niors were led in of­fense by the break-away runs of Ahrya Red­ing and the strong de­fen­sive play of Meledy Owens.
