The Giants faced off against the Jets in the girl’s grades 9 – 12 Super Bowl last Sunday. The two teams were evenly matched, having split the two regular season games. But it turned out to be the Giants’ night, winning by a score of 18-7. The Giants played short-handed all season, with a roster of only five; and all five girls contributed greatly to this victory. The Giants took the opening drive and scored a touchdown on a short pass to Kat ‘Safety Dance’ Krieg who made a good move to get free and run it in from 25 yards out. It looked like the Jets were going to tie it when the fleet-footed Myasa Evans broke free on an end run but Jessica ‘Steady’ Scire came all the way across the field and made a touchdown saving flag. A few plays later Hailey ‘I’m retiring’ Lospitalier intercepted in the end zone to thwart the Jets’ scoring chance. The Giants capitalized when they drove the full field and scored a second touchdown on a short pass to Krieg. The Giants expanded their lead in the second half to 18-0 on another short pass to Lospitalier. This followed a beautiful bomb pass from QB Theresa ‘Air’ DeSantis to Krieg who was run down just short of the goal. The defense played outstanding, especially Hanna ‘Wild Girl’ Berge who made several diving, touchdown saving, flags. DeSantis was on target all night long, finishing with three touchdown passes and many completions which helped control the ball and the clock. A well-deserved win by the girls against an outstanding team.
