Soccer Team Makes Donation August 31, 2017
In the game of soccer, getting a red card can stop a player in his tracks and even remove him from the game if the offense is serious enough.
This past spring, Sean Karpel, coach of the Donegal Thunder 07 U10 boys team, met Paul Payne, the coach of Bloomsburg University men's soccer team, at a coaches' training course hosted by Donegal Youth Soccer.
Following a friend's passing in 2009, Payne founded Red Card Cancer. Payne explained that 100 percent of all funds raised through Red Card Cancer go directly to life-saving research at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.
When Karpel learned about Red Card Cancer, he decided to pledge $100 for every goal scored by the team this season. One of Karpel's TransCore co-workers had recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. After hearing Karpel's idea, his company's president, Tracy Marks, suggested making it $500 per goal.
Throughout the season, players wore red wristbands at each game. At the end of each game, instead of exchanging team patches with the opposing team, they would give the opposing players a Red Card Cancer wristband.
The team scored 31 goals this season.
"I could not be more proud of my company and our kids," Karpel said. "This was a great opportunity to teach our kids the power of community, of working together for something bigger than themselves."
Karpel and the soccer team presented Red Card Cancer with a check for $15,500 on Aug. 17.
Golfers Knot Barons August 31, 2017
Behind Jonathon Rush and his low round of the day, the Mules moved into a tie for third place in Section Two, knotting the Barons of Manheim at 15-9 on Aug. 28 at Meadia Heights Golf Course.
The Lampeter-Strasburg Pioneers played well on their home course and topped previously undefeated Cocalico on the fifth-man tiebreaker after forging a 356 tie. Solanco finished third overall with a 364. Central 373, Garden Spot 409, Elizabethtown 414, and Ephrata 419 rounded out the section.
Backing Rush, who fired a 77 on the par 71 course, were Evan Wagoner 95, Tim Schmitt 96, and Sheldon Peiffer 96. Reid Balliet (106) and Isaac Nadu (126) also competed.
"Meadia is a tight, tree-lined course," said head coach Greg Minnich. "I'm happy with our third-place finish. If we could just get a couple of guys to shoot in the 80s, we could compete for first. We were only eight shots behind L-S (19-5) and Cocalico (23-1) but did finish ahead of Central, who we have been battling all year for third place," he added. "Four of our top six are seniors. Evan and Isaac are gaining valuable experience."
