Nearly every person has been touched by breast cancer in some way, be it a friend or a relative or a friend’s relative, the fight for breast cancer is a struggle for all of us, to help the women in our lives overcome this devastating disease. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Woodcreek high school hosted the Pink Zone football game in order to increase awareness of this terrible illness.

Our players walked out onto the field proudly sporting pink spats in recognition of raising awareness for breast cancer, and the Varsity game itself was a nail-biter. With both teams neck and neck throughout the game, with Woodcreek up by at the end of the 1st quarter. 14-12 us. Nevada Union then was up by 1 by the end of the 2nd quarter. 18-17 them. With a tide-turning play, Tyler England was able to break away from the opposition to score a touchdown. 24-18 us. From there, Woodcreek was able to maintain the lead, costing to a victory over Nevada Union. 34-32 W for Woodcreek.

Both the JV and Varsity football teams were able to pull off a win against rival team Nevada Union, but as the cheerleaders came around to collect money for breast cancer during halftime, the real win was in the funds we were able to raise, a grand total of around $600 just from bleacher donations alone. These funds will go towards the breast cancer elimination as experts research it’s cause and prevention, Woodcreek working to help the fight against breast cancer.
