The Wilmington High School junior and senior classes will face off in a flag football game on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at Alumni Stadium at 6:30 p.m.

Girls from the Wilmington High School junior and senior classes will face off in the football game, while junior and senior boys will perform a cheer routine during halftime. 

Senior Danielle Reynolds said the practices leading up to Tuesday's game are becoming more and more intensive.

"The practices are a lot of fun," Reynolds said. "We started with the basics and it's getting more intense every time."

Another member of the senior team, Lauren Amazeen, said she was looking forward to a large turnout from the Wilmington community. 

"I didn't realize how big it was going to be,"Amazeen said. "I'm sure the whole community will come out. Everybody's going to be really excited."

Sophomore Olivia Petrucci, who is helping coach the boys for their halftime cheerleading routine, said hopefully the performance will serve to pump the crowd up even more.

"The boys are working on their halftime routine to get everybody psyched up," Petrucci said. "Everyone is practicing hard. They are really into it."

Sophomore Jim Lawrenson, who will be performing at halftime on Tuesday,  said hopefully the senior and junior classes can turn the game into a tradition at Wilmington High School. 

"I'm very excited to be able to pass on the torch to the next group of male cheerleaders," Lawrenson said. 

Wilmington High School Assistant Principal Dennis Mahoney said there should be a fairly large turnout with alumni, friends and family returning to town for Thanksgiving later in the week. 

Tickets are only $5 (free for kids under the age of 10), with most of proceeds going to the senior class, but 25 percent going to the charity of the losers choice.
