WINTHROP, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Though it took a hiatus last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Powder Puff football returned to high school fields across the state. The flag football game between Winthrop and Revere happened on Saturday.
"We always have a big rivalry with Revere," said Winthrop coach and senior captain Mia Martucci to WBZ's Carl Stevens, "I hope we come out with the win- it's really special." Martucci got her wish, with Winthrop coming on top with a 28-0 win against Revere. When asked how she felt about the tradition being put on hold last year Martucci said, "it was tough because the girls in the grade above us are very athletic and it could have been a chance to get the title back home to Winthrop."
Revere coach Becky Coots said, "This isn't just a fundraiser to them, this is their Super Bowl, their Thanksgiving day game, their game seven- this is everything for them."
