Fabius-Pompey Goes PinkFabius-Pompey Goes Pink
When a Fabius-Pompey community member thinks about Tully often the term rival or competitor comes to mind. However, on Thursday October 1st, Fabius-Pompey and Tully put their differences aside and created an event to stamp out Breast Cancer by supporting the Carol M. Baldwin Fund. This inaugural event, known as “Communities Kickin’ Cancer,” saw parents, coaches, players, local businesses and community members come together, clad in pink shirts, for a night of soccer, good food, games, prizes, but even more important remembering and honoring loved ones afflicted with cancer. The outpouring of support from fans young and old made this event one to remember as preliminary accounts show that the communities raised over Five Thousand Dollars.
The Communities Kickin’ Cancer event took on extra excitement for the Falcon faithful as the two school’s soccer teams competed for The Route 80 Cup for the first time. Both schools played a spirited match going 65 minutes without a goal. With 15 minutes left, Falcon midfielder Jake Keplinger scored off a free kick with assists from Adrian Vilardi and Alex Giegerich. The Falcon Defense, led by Sam Sharpe, Dylan Perez, Garrett Horst, Tom Sayles and Kory Mawson held firm for the final minutes to secure a 1-0 victory. With the win Fabius-Pompey will hold The Route 80 Cup until next season. The Falcons and Black Knights would like to thank both communities and look forward to next year’s event.
