MIDDLETOWN >> Middletown High soccer star Mikaela Coady can play a little football, too.
Coady scored three touchdowns to lead the senor girls to a 28-14 win over the junior girls in the school’s annual Powder Puff game played in front of 800 persons at Rosek-Skubel Stadium at MHS Monday night.
Coady scored on runs of 28, 49 and 2 yards as her team led all the way.
But the big winners on Monday were charity. The Amazing Grace Food Pantry benefited from 12 boxes of canned goods that were donated by fans, and thousands of dollars were collected in admissions that will go to the Adopt A Family charity.
“I’m very pleased,” said interim Key Club advisor Lindsay Lowell, a social studies teacher at the school who is subbing for adviser Nicole Charles. “We had a bigger crowd than I expected. I thought the cold would keep people away.
Faculty members donated their services as game officiatryls and Key Club members helped with canned goods. Mary Cantwell, Secretary of the Club and a senior football player, sand the National Anthem. Some 110 girls played in the game.
There was a halftime show presented by 35 boy cheerleaders and the MHS band played throughout.
The seniors led 14-7 at the half.
