The annual girls soccer Pink Out game is taking place on October 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Tunxis Mead Park. The game is just not just to wear pink and cheer on the team, it is an opportunity to donate and support the Connecticut Breast Cancer Initiative. 

The Pink Out game is a great opportunity to raise and donate money for a good cause and to honor those who have endured breast cancer as well as those who help,” senior captain Alexa Scott said.

The girls currently hold a record of 7-1-1 beating rivals Simsbury and Avon and winning against Enfield 8-1. They also have a Coaches Poll ranking of seventh in the state and look to push up to the top as the state tournament approaches, and look to bring another soccer state championship back to Farmington.

“At the end of the season, we intend to approach the tournament with the same winning mentality and are looking to build off of last year’s finals run this year, only now in Class LL,” senior captain Kaite Powell said. 

Under the lights, the team will be playing the Newington Indians, a team with similar statistics to that of Farmington. They have a very good 8-1 record with notable wins against Simsbury and Lewis Mills. The girls had high praise for their opponents.

“They are a strong team, and we plan to go into it as we would any game. We focus on the drive to win and playing for each other, and that has really helped us to see the results so far this season,” Scott said.

Make sure to go Pink Out game and support the girls and the CT Breast Cancer Initiative on October 25.
