Girls took to the football field to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Network Australia.
Fountain Gate football club took out a keenly contested win against Hampton Park for the eighth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Cup.
About $400 was raised by the home team Hampton Park and Parkmore Junior Football Club. That sum will be matched by Fountain Gate.
Both sides wore unique pink uniforms for the occasion.
Hampton Park also paid tribute to a club member who had succumbed to breast cancer last year.
Narre Warren South MP Judith Couacaud Graley, who presented the winner’s cup, paid tribute to the players’ “great strength, tenacity and dedication” to the game and the cause.
“It is a terrible reality that breast cancer continues to impact so many people, however the work both these clubs are doing on this important issue demonstrates that we can help change this reality for our community in the future.”
