Torrington Middle School 11th Boys vs. Girls Soccer Showdown

The Torrington Middle School 11th Boys vs. Girls Soccer Showdown will be held Thursday, November 8, 2018 at the Torrington Middle School, 200 Middle School Drive, Torrington, CT 06790.

The Showdown is back for the 11th time, after a two-year hiatus, with a boys vs. girls soccer match with a unique scoring system. The game will be scored conventionally, but in addition, there is another competition going on as well. Each team will also be soliciting donations of canned and non-perishable food items for FISH ( Friends In Service to Humanity). For every 20 food items a team collects, a goal will be added to their score.

Donations for the girls’ team should be taken to Coach Angelo Calabrese in Room 111, donations for the boys’ team to Coach Brian Kiernan Room 118. Donors may deliver the goods on game day, but in advance would be better for logistical reasons. Rules state that the final tally will be made at half time.

In the most recent years, the Showdown has collected 1500 – 1600 food items.

The event runs from 3 – 5:30 pm.

Proceeds from the Showdown will benefit FISH of Northwestern CT.
