Cheshire High School has brought back Powder Puff footbal this year with a new wrinkle. Instead of playing a rival like Southington or North Haven, CHS has scheduled a game between senior and junior girls for Wednesday at Alumni Field. Start time is 1 p.m.
Tickets will be sold for $5 at the gate.
For the 24th Apple Valley Classic on Thanksgiving, CHS football (8-1) will carry a seven-game win streak into the regular-season finale against visiting Southington (8-1) at 10 a.m. Before Thursday’s game, the Rams will recognize their senior classes.
With seven straight rivalry wins, the Blue Knights hold a 14-9 lead in the holiday series. CHS seeks their first victory since winning 41-30 back in 2011.
Pre-sale tickets for adults ($8) and students/senior citizens ($5) are being sold in both athletic offices through Wednesday. At the gate of the game, adult tickets will be $10.
