It may still be basketball season, but some local football players made their way to Joplin Saturday afternoon, to play their favorite sport.
Four State Fusion along with Race 4 Hopes members teamed up to host a pink football game at the Joplin Athletic Complex. The game consisted of an 8 man, arena style matchup with the 4 State Fusion taking on the Missouri Voodoo.
Half of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Hope 4 You organization in Joplin and coaches with the team say they couldn't be more proud to support a great cause.
"Actually we are sponsoring them all year long. So we like to get people out here in support of that. We have a few breast cancer survivors out here that are honorary captains today and we'll do that every week" says offensive coordinator Marvin Frost.
Officials say they hope to bring an arena football team to the area soon.
