Four teams lined up Wednesday, Oct. 3, to battle each other and battle for a good cause — the fight against cancer.

The annual Pink Week Powder Puff flag football game pitted Marhsall Public Schools staff against Fitzgibbon Hospital staff, and Marshall High School senior girls versus junior girls.

The game consisted of four 20-minute quarters, with teams alternating. MPS and Fitzgibbon played the first quarter, the MHS girls played the second, then they repeated the sequence for the second half.

Local dance studios provided entertainment between quarters.
