Are you into sports like football? Do you often give women’s game a pass and try to bet on men’s games on Betway? It’s exactly what some of the amazing women out there are trying to change.
The semipro and the youth football team came together last Saturday to play a rather important game. Both teams were dressed in pink and black jerseys, and the whole point of this particular exercise was to teach girls that football is a lot more than just about being one of the boys.
You Can Achieve What You Want
Theresa Petrone Butts, who plays as a part of the semipro NY Knockout, said that they want girls to know that there are no limits to what they can achieve just because of the game and their gender. The girls are just as capable of winning as the boys are. It acts as a motivation and a self-esteem booster.
She was thrilled to get the opportunity to attend the clinic at the Sportsplex of Halfmoon as she is about to deliver her second child soon. More thrilled, she was when she heard that the girl’s team named as Raisin’ Havoc won a match against a group of boys.
Lou Betts who was the former coach at Siena is now Knockout’s head coach. He stated that the clinics are vital to helping the sports grown amongst women.
In a session against the Knockouts, the Havocs pulled out a big winner, that all started with a fake handoff for which the Knockouts fell for.
Alaina Lange, a player for the Knockouts, stayed back late to help aspiring young quarterbacks with their game. She also coaches the Schalmont girls’ soccer team.
With the games supposed to begin in the month of April at Schenectady High, the Knockouts to are getting ready to start their season on a high note. They will start the practice in a couple of weeks and will have monthly try-outs as well.
The Havocs have won for the second consecutive time beating a group of boys in the Sportsplex. They went on to win 31-30, in a close match hitting the winner with about forty seconds remaining on the clock. Mike Barker who had coached JV ball at Broadalbin-Perth back in the 1990s has had fun being a part of the game again because his daughter Ava is on the team. He also said in a statement that football is as rewarding as it is because it teaches you a lot about life.
He also explains, much to the amusement of his daughter, that it is quite common for boys to start the blame game onto each other, which is quite self-destructive in itself when things are not going well against the Havocs, and they are on the verge of losing a game. Ava added to that statement saying that the boys look kind of mad and frustrated when things like that tend to happen.
With such talented players on the team, there is a ray of hope and sunshine for women in the field of sports, like football.
