The Ansonia-Mississinawa Valley football game is always a big one. But this year it’s big for more reasons than just football.
The rivals – separated by seven miles – will tangle Friday night in Ansonia in a contest that’s being deemed a “Pink Out.”
At the game, money will be collected and raised for two foundations that honor two former students at Ansonia who lost battles with cancer.
One foundation is in honor of Dylan Everman. Dylan was a 13-year old seventh-grader at Ansonia when he lost his battle with Lukemia on February 4, 2007.
The other foundation is in honor of Kirsten Schlarman. Kirsten was a 14-year old eighth-grader at Ansonia when she lost her battle to Osteosarcoma on February 18, 2010.
As for the game, expect Ansonia to win.
The Tigers have never lost to their Darke County rivals (34-0 all-time against MV) and are undefeated this season. Ansonia is averaging 45 points per game.
Mississinawa Valley enters 1-4.
Regardless of the outcome Friday, everyone at this game will be a winner.
