Every year, the girls’ varsity soccer team takes on the boys’ varsity football team in a game of soccer to raise money for different types of cancer. This year, all of the proceeds will go to bone cancer. The annual tradition was started by former Homestead alumna Anna Strehlow as a way to raise money for cancer research. This year’s game took place Wednesday, May 29.

“The game is really important because cancer is such a leading cause of death, and it’s good we can come together as a community to raise money for the cause,” Nick Voslar, junior, said.  

For the past three years of high school, junior, Cameron Lindsay has played in the Futbol vs Football duel. “It’s a fun way to generate money for the good cause,” Lindsay said.

In a competitive 70 minutes, the boys won the game 6-4.

For the boys Wesley Lawlor, junior, scored three goals, Jack Riebau, senior, scored two goals, Jordan Gomez, senior, scored one goal.

For the girls, Caylee Herrera, junior, scored one goal, Leena Afifi, freshman, scored one goal, and Brooke Mets, sophomore, scored two goals. 

“It’s a very interesting and fun game because football guys are actually really fast. The game is a good change and a good speckle for the fans,” Herrera said.

Overall, both teams enjoyed the competitive challenge and playing for a good cause. The game raised a total of $1,800 for bone cancer research. 

“This game is a great way to get people excited to fundraise and support different teams from our school,” Payton Kuenzi, junior, said.
