Ramona Soccer League celebrated breast cancer awareness day on Saturday, Oct. 26, and players got into the spirit by accessorizing with pink in a variety of ways.

There were pink socks, pink jerseys, pink ribbons, pink hair, and even pink snow cones at the snack stand. Ramona Soccer League wanted to help celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month to bring attention to those affected by the disease and to support ongoing research to find a cure. The effort resulted in a fun and colorful day at the soccer fields.

This Saturday (and Sunday for adult soccer) will be the last games of the season. Ramona Soccer League will be handing out trophies to the top teams, along with medals and commemorative pins. Teams are given 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie and 0 points for a loss. Teams are also given an extra point for a shutout. Any tie in points is settled by the following: greater number of wins, goal differential, highest goals for and lowest goals against. Go to RamonaSoccer.com for the latest updates.
