Filly football ready to take the field

Jonathan Reid – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS’s annual Filly Football game will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the Lakewood Ranch football field.

This is an event for girls to play in a flag football tournament that benefits the Student Government Association (SGA). There are a total of four games being played.

The matchups include Seniors vs. Freshmen and Juniors vs. Sophomores. The two victorious teams will play in the championship game. The two classes that don’t win will then play in a consolation game.

Senior Molly Mendoza stated, “This is going to be my first year playing but I thought it’d be fun since it’s a good fundraiser and my friends on the football team are coaching it.”

There is a $2 admission fee and everyone is encouraged to come out and watch.

A concession stand will be available offering drinks, chips, candy and other snacks.
