On Monday October 30th at Franklin High, Allied Soccer teams from various high schools participated in the 28th annual Pumpkin Bowl. The Pumpkin Bowl is an annual tournament celebrating the end of the Allied soccer season and consists of teams from all around Baltimore County.

The high schools that participated in the Pumpkin Bowl were: Dulaney, Franklin, Hereford, Towson, Lansdowne, New Town, Dundalk, Woodlawn, Kenwood, Chesapeake, Owings Mills and Parkville. At 4 pm, all the teams ran out under the inflatable tunnel and cheered for one another. The national anthem played to commemorate the start of the games. The host, Franklin High, also provides all the athletes with dinner. After the opening ceremonies, the teams participate in sets of mini games, each game lasting about 15 minutes. 

“The Pumpkin Bowl is the perfect way to celebrate all the best things about Allied Sports. I love seeing everyone cheer as each team is announced,” said Coach Anita Shaw. 

Dulaney High participated in a total of two games, though they were scheduled for three. Due to heavy rain and thunder, teams were required to leave at 6 pm. Despite the abrupt ending of the season, athletes still persisted and played games to their best ability with the rain. Coaches, buddies and parents also kept a positive, uplifting spirit embodying the core aspect of allied sports. Some buddies even dressed up in elaborate Halloween costumes. Allied sports puts an emphasis on good spirit, even considering setbacks. In the end, no winners were declared due to the unscheduled ending.
