Roanoke City Soccer Contest a Kick for Cancer

(Note: Doubleclick the photos and they will enlarge, some considerably.)
A nice crowd showed up on a bright afternoon for Kick for a Cure at Patrick Henry High School stadium where PH and William Fleming played girls soccer.^

Crowd members wore lots of pink in honor of breast cancer's potential cure.^

That's my buddy Annie Johnson (reporter for the Blue Ridge Business Journal), who is an assistant for Carrie at PH.^

Caroline swipes a piece of pizza from her uncle Landon (Fleming boys' coach).^

Patrick Henry's Tessa Swanson prepares to king a long one. A Fleming player (left) was hurt on this play. Sorry, but I don't have a Fleming roster to ID her.^

Fleming's very large goalie (red) faces down Tricia Jessee.^

Patrick Henry's only senior, Emily Davis, passes. She is a truly nimble dribbler and passer. Emily can play.^

Patrick Henry and William Fleming High Schools, Roanoke's two plublic high schools, played a soccer game for the benefit of breast cancer yesterday at Patrick Henry and quite a crowd turned out, dressed in supportive pink. Here's some of what went on.
