Hononegah Soccer Goes Pink

Hononegah's soccer team wore pink jerseys Tuesday in honor of breast cancer awareness month.
ROCKTON-Hononegah's school colors are purple and gold. But Tuesday night the boys soccer team was wearing pink jerseys. It was in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

All of the guys had them on for their game against Jefferson. Money generated from ticket sales and concession sales at the game will be donated for the cause.

Many of the players on the team have family members or friends who have dealt with breast cancer.

"My grandma has breast cancer right now, and she's overcoming it," says Hononegah soccer player Nick Stella. "Then my mom and my aunt both had surgeries, so they wouldn't get it in the future."

"It feels great (to wear the pink jerseys). We get to come out here. We get to make a point. No one's ever done it before in the area," says Stella.

Those pink jerseys worked out well for the Indians. They beat Jefferson 3-1.
