Wynyard and Watrous tackled more than their opponents on Tuesday. 

The Tackle Hunger Football Game was held on October 9th in Wynyard between the Golden Bears and the Watrous Wildcats. 

The third annual running of the drive is to raise food and monetary donations that go towards the Wynyard and District Food Bank. "Players were asked to campaign there fellow students to bring food items to support," said Morris Sokul, Head Coach of the Wynyard Golden Bears.

"Nearly 100% of the players participated brought food items to help Tackle Hunger in our district. Visiting Coaches were seen making monetary donations to help the cause as well. Sport is so much more than a game so thank-you to all," Sokul added.

In total $361 in monetary donations and 326 pounds of food was raised for the Wynyard and District Food Bank.
