The annual “just for fun” soccer clash between West Central Turkeys staff and supervisors featured lots of laughs–plus a healthy fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Association.
The soccer game is part of West Central Turkeys “Relay for Life” effort to help kick cancer.
For the second year in a row, the West Central Supervisors defeated the workers–who played under the name “Las Viejitos,” translated the “old guys.”
The score of the game isn’t particularly important in this entertaining match-up, which was lively entertainment for both players and spectators–many of them co-workers and family members.
The supervisors were up by 3- 1 at the half, and retained a lead to game’s end. But the referee called for a “shoot-out” at the end, where teams took alternating, one-on-one shots on goaltenders.
When the kicking spree ended, the supervisor squad ended up on top–by a score of 5-4.
The WCT organizers expect to break the $1,200 mark for the cancer fundraiser, noted Salvador Diaz, which included a well-stocked concession stand.
Mexican and Somali food was served, with proceeds going to the cancer society.
