Sometimes the outcome of a high school game is not what really matters and that was the case last Friday as the Chelsea field hockey team hosted Ann Arbor Huron in its fourth annual Play4TheCure game.

The Bulldogs raised $3,816 during this year’s campaign and games.

Chelsea field hockey has used the Play4TheCure campaign platform for four years, raising more than $12,800 for cancer research. All money raised goes directly to research in the laboratories at the National Foundation for Cancer Research.

The Bulldogs hosted Huron and the middle school team played a game prior to the varsity game.

On the field, the Bulldogs lost to the defending state champions 3-1.

Makayla Kegerris scored the goal for the Bulldogs.

“Friday night’s game was fast-paced with a lot of exciting shooting moments for both teams,” said Leslie Fry, Varsity Coach. “It’s always fun to meet our play for the cure goal with our field hockey community, friends, and fans.”

The Bulldogs fell to 3-8-2 on the season.
