The 60th Anniversary Powder Puff Bowl Championship Game took place last Sunday at Husky Field in Gloversville. The game was played between the Juniors (class of 2019) and Seniors (class of 2018) as a fundraiser for both to raise funds for their prom and senior trips. To celebrate and honor Robert “Saxy” Marshall and William Gabeler for creating the initial even back in 1957, the Gloversville Women’s Alumni Club created the “Saxy Marshall Offensive Player of the Game Award” and the “William Gabeler Defensive Player of the Game Award.” The Senior Girls (class of 2018) won the game by a score of 14-6. They also won the game last year as juniors.
