Field Hockey Team Raises Money To Fight Breast Cancer And Battles Opponents
Playing for more than a win, Newtown High School’s field hockey program held its Play 4 The Cure game to raise money for the National Foundation for Cancer Research, at Blue and Gold Stadium when Joel Barlow of Redding visited on October 9.
The teams raffled off baskets and sold baked goods and drinks to raise $1,600 for the fight against breast cancer. All teams — freshman, varsity, and junior varsity — participated in the event. The teams thank Robert Anthony’s Salon and Cover Two Sports Cafe for their generous support. Barlow won the game 2-0.
Newtown also lost 4-0 to Ridgefield on October 13 and 1-0 to New Fairfield the next day. Newtown carried a 5-8 overall record into the Friday, October 17 game against Pomperaug of Southbury at Treadwell Park, scheduled for 3:45 pm.
