There will be a "Pink Out" at the Mississinawa-Ansonia game Friday

The Ansonia-Mississinawa Valley football game is always a big one. But this year it’s big for more reasons than just football. The rivals – separated by seven miles – will tangle Friday night in Ansonia in a contest that’s being deemed a “Pink Out.”

At the game, money will be collected and raised for two foundations that honor two former students at Ansonia who lost battles with cancer. One foundation is in honor of Dylan Everman. Dylan was a 13-year old seventh-grader at Ansonia when he lost his battle with Lukemia on February 4, 2007. The other foundation is in honor of Kirsten Schlarman. Kirsten was a 14-year old eighth-grader at Ansonia when she lost her battle to Osteosarcoma on February 18, 2010. There was nearly 500 Pink shirts sold for the game. [submitted by SB]


  1. I wish both teams good luck and I hope they raise enough cash to go "OMG".

  2. Can't wait!

    Although a little disappointed to see that there might have been specific shirts for sale. I just got a generic one at walmart. I would have much rather supported AHS' cause than walmart's.

    Either way, it's going to be an awesome evening.
