The Arlington Eagles' Mamas get into formation as they run through their offense at Post Middle School on June 22.

The Arlington Eagles' Mamas are gearing up for their second Powder Puff football game this month, as they will take on the Stanwood Spartan Moms on June 29.

This year the rivalry game will be held at Arlington High School and the gates will be opening at 5 p.m.

The Eagles' Mamas will look to continue their streak of fundraising for youth football and cheerleading, as they have not had to turn away a single kid over the last three years. With the money raised scholarships are formed for those who need it and allow everyone to compete.

"These women are my heroes. They come out here and put in so much work in order to be able to execute out there on the field. With that work they also help so many kids, and I can't think of anything better than to be able to help give the kids access to programs that will benefit them in the future," said Head Coach Laren Boehm.

This season the individual tickets will cost $5 and family tickets will be $10, with a max of six members per family. Aside from the game/raffles, Arlington will also have special guests attending for autographs and greeting. Some special guests include members of the Arlington Grizzlies, Rat City Roller Derby, Puget Sound Outcast Derby and Barb Tolbert, the mayor of Arlington.

"I am addicted to football. It is the one time I'm allowed to come out here and throw all of my focus and energy into the game. I intend on playing this game till someone tells me to get off the field, and when that happens I'll become a coach," said runningback Roz Boehm.

Boehm is one of the best players for Arlington, as well as being their biggest fundraising member. Her experience in the sport stems back to 2001, when she was a member of the Seattle Warbirds, in the inaugural season of the Women's American Football League. After joining the Eagles' Mamas she has helped recruit players and was a big part in topping $7,000 in fundraising each year.

"I'm very active, I wanted something to get out energy and it is something that I can do to give back. At the end of the day, it is a great cause and helps out a lot of children that need it. It means a lot when you see the kids that are put through because of this," said quarterback Charity Klein.

After the game, Arlington will be hosting an afterparty at the Mirkwood Public House, that will be open to children until 11 p.m. If you want to learn more information about the team you can find them on Facebook as the "Arlington Eagles' Mamas" at https://www.facebook.com/Arlington-Eagles-Mamas-519808915082644.
