Assumption Rockets vs. Sacred Heart Valkyries
Friday, April 28th
Pink and White Game – 7:00 PM
Saint Xavier High School
Assumption defeated Sacred Heart last year by a score of 14-7 in the ninth annual Pink and White Game. The game was a strong showing of the deep rivalry these two schools have, and tonight will prove the same.
Yes, Louisville is known for their football rivalries, the St.X and Trinity game drawing near 30,000 year to year, but another 6,000+ will squeeze into the stands tonight for a powder-puff football game. That’s more than most schools around the country for their rivalry football games for the guys.
A side from the actual game, the halftime show is something you will not want to miss. I guarantee it will rival with Lady Gaga at the Super Bowl this year, as the St.X and Trinity Dancers will put on a one-in-a-lifetime performance. The Tigers have been at work for the past couple of months under the watchful eye of some champion Assumption dancers and former football coach turned dancing protegé Mike Glaser. There’s sure to be some booty poppin’ and hip shakin’ taking place.
Most importantly though, make sure to make it out to the opening ceremonies that begin at 7:00 PM on the field. All four schools have been invited to bring family members, friends, and loved ones that have beaten cancer and escort them on the field for special recognition of their battle. Not only is it a beautiful ceremony, but it embodies what this game is truly played for.
