Chanting “Save the ta-ta’s,” Pine-Richland’s girls varsity field hockey team honored Breast Cancer Awareness Month before it took the field in a contest against the Hempfield Lady Spartans.
The Lady Rams increased awareness and raised money for the event by conducting pledges for each goal scored, holding a 50/50 raffle and bake sales, and selling wristbands and pink T-shirts.
The Lady Rams honored all women fighting cancer and paid tribute to those women who have lost their battle by pausing for a moment of silence.
The varsity team won Tuesday’s contest against Hempfield, 10-0, as did the junior varsity team earlier in the evening by the same score.
The varsity field hockey team’s next game will be at Penn-Trafford at 4:15 p.m. Oct 11; junior varsity plays at 3 p.m.
The team plays Greater Latrobe at 7:30 p.m., with JV playing at 6 p.m. Oct. 13 at Pine-Richland Stadium.
UPDATE: The final home game of the season is scheduled against North Allegheny at 8 p.m. Oct. 19, with JV playing at 6:30 p.m.
