Friday, Oct. 14, Stamford High School held its fourth annual Pink Out football game in Boyle Stadium, taking on Staples High School and raising over $11,000 for cancer research. It was quite a chilly evening, but that didn’t stop the Black Knights from coming out to support the Pink Out game, where the money collected was donated to cancer. “It was a tremendous success, we were  fortunate enough to have been successful for the past four years and make over $10,000 every game,” said math teacher and event organizer Adam Scianna. “Not only is it a great cause, but it brings the whole Stamford High community together to not only unite, but also to raise money for a good cause.”

“It’s really cool that lots of people came out, I didn’t know this many people came out to support.” said junior Brianna Jean. The student section on Stamford High’s side was all “pinked out,” with many students, including parents and teachers, showing support for their football team and for breast cancer awareness. The spirit was still high and all the students were brought together even though the Black Knights had lost the tough game.

“It’s a fun event to go to and it brings the whole school together and everyone is connected.” said Gabriella DeLaurentis.

Staples High School may have defeated us in the football game, but the spirit stayed up strong. In the first quarter of the game, Staples High School was already leading by 7-0 then 14-0. By quarter two Stamford was still behind, but we came in with a touchdown making the score 21-7 and Staples followed us with another touchdown changing the score to 7-28. With six minutes and 25 seconds left in third quarter, the Black Knights scored another touchdown, but were still behind at 28-13. Staples followed  with a final touchdown in fourth quarter making the final score 35-13.
