Last week’s nine fires in San Diego affected air quality in Temecula prompting the cancellation of outdoor activities throughout the area last Friday, including the Sugar Bowl Powder Puff Football games between Chaparral, Great Oak and Temecula Valley. The games – and first-ever City Championship – have been rescheduled.
This year’s Sugar Bowl games will be held at Great Oak High School stadium on Friday, May 30:
4:00 pm Great Oak vs Chaparral
5:15 pm Temecula Valley vs Chaparral
6:30 pm Great Oak vs Temecula Valley
Please note: times are a half-hour earlier than previously scheduled on May 16. Ticket prices are $3 for students and $5 for general admission.
This year’s games are sponsored by Nutrishop Temecula and Valley News Sports.
The teams have been preparing for weeks, including school pride games between seniors and juniors teams. Chaparral seniors defeated the juniors team 12-6 in an exciting double overtime game, scoring on a pass play to Lorena Ruiz. Temecula Valley seniors defeated their juniors 14-8 behind the play of quarterback Sam Capuzzi who connected on an 18-yard pass to Lorena Regalado; Capuzzi also ran for another score on a 44-yd QB keeper.
Great Oak’s seniors found themselves in a tough defensive battle with their juniors, but ended up on the short end of the 6-0 score when Rachel Smith turned a short screen pass into a 70-yard score.
There will be lots of exciting football action as well as creative outfits and cheer routines from each school’s “manleaders.”
Come on out to support the girls and come see who gets the Mayor’s Cup for the very first Powder Puff Football Temecula City Championship.
“I am really looking forward to seeing the girls play and compete,” said Temecula Mayor Mary Ann Edwards. “I am honored to be part of this fun event that brings the community together. We look forward to doing this every year.”
