“FOOTBALL RIVALS TEAM UP TO DEFEAT UNDERAGE DRINKING”
Opposing teams to sport red ribbons to highlight city’s social host ordinance
Mission Hills High School Grizzlies and San Marcos High School Knights football teams pause their longstanding rivalry to raise awareness of the dangers of underage drinking, during Red Ribbon Week. All the players will sport red ribbon stickers on their helmets when they meet up for a California Interscholastic Federation football game. Referees, coaches, cheerleaders and other school leaders will show their support by wearing pin-on versions of the ribbons. The goal is to provide students, parents and other football fans with visual reminders that it is illegal to provide anyone under 21 with alcohol or a drinking venue.
Visuals will include:
Players streaming onto the field with red ribbon stickers on their helmets in a sign of unity against underage drinking. Home team captain handing a red ribbon sticker to visiting team captain, who places it on his helmet (immediately before the coin toss).
Cheer squads performing with red ribbons pinned to their uniforms.
When: 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday, October 26, 2018
Where: San Marcos High School, 1615 West San Marcos Boulevard, San Marcos, CA 92078
Alcohol is the substance most widely abused among American youth.

Negative consequences associated with underage drinking include alcohol poisoning, risky sexual behavior physical and sexual assault, and motor vehicle crashes.
This Red Ribbon campaign is designed to raise awareness of underage drinking, help parents and teens understand there is no safe setting for it, and highlight the fact that social host laws protect everyone from the hazards common to underage drinking.

Nomads held to 1-1 draw for second consecutive week!
The San Elijo GU11 Nomads have found out in the last two weeks that the road to the top of the table is not easy. The Nomads were held to a 1-1 draw against a scrappy Bonita Matrix team on Saturday Morning.
The Nomads started off sluggish, but then opened the scoring up when Faith Fitzsimmons received a ball in midfield, turned into space, beat the last defender, and headed towards goal to bury a ball in the back of the net for a 1-0 lead. The lead did not last long. 4 minutes later a direct free kick was awarded to Bonita Matrix just outside the penalty box. Bonita took advantage of it by placing the ball high into the back of the net and over goalkeeper Isa Hernandez to tie the game before halftime.
The Nomads picked up the energy in the second half, but saw several opportunities to secure the much needed 3 points pass them by. With their second consecutive draw, the Nomads secured another point and await the results of other games on Saturday to see where they will land in the table. The Nomads are now 6-0-4 with 4 games left, and will play host to North San Diego Football Club next week as they continue their push towards winning the GU11 AA-C Division.
