Soccer players with Las Vegas Metro Police Department and Las Vegas and Clark County firefighters faced off on Saturday, Nov. 19 on the Clark High School soccer field to raise funds for a good cause.
The game, hosted by Nevada Youth Soccer Association, raised monies for both youth soccer scholarships through NYSA and also Clark High School programs, said NYSA Executive Director Melanie Stafford.
The charity match also comprised 10 youth soccer players who served as referees and coaches for the competing teams. For each of the eight goals made, local businesses NV Capital Corp. and Blackmon Home Loans donated $100.
“In the end, the police team pulled off the win,” said Stafford. “We are grateful for both teams and our sponsors for helping area youths while participating in a fun, competitive game.”
