Gallup wins with safety in final minutes of SuperBowl

 In its fourth season, PowderPuff can finally crown a new champion: Gallup. The ladies in pink defeated Gough in the SuperBowl, 2-0, dethroning three-time champion Kea-Guffin.

After winning in overtime against Gough during the regular season, Gallup’s defense took the spotlight in the SuperBowl, containing Gough’s strong run game. Fittingly, the defense was also responsible for the game’s only score when first-year Paige Quill tackled Gough’s runningback junior Abby Briggs in the endzone with less than two minutes left in the game. 

Gallup quarterback sophomore Jackie Frisch made the safety possible the drive before when she lead the offense to the one-yard line. Quill took advantage of the field position and was mobbed by teammates after pulling the flag.
