WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- At a Waynesboro Area Senior High School soccer game on Thursday, it wasn't about the score or the players' athletic prowess.
The focus was a 15-year-old boy not at the game because he was receiving chemotherapy at Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center.
Ethan Barnhart's classmates organized the faculty vs. student soccer game in tribute to his fight against Ewing's Sarcoma. Nine hundred students paid $1 each to watch the game during an advisory period.
Barnhart's family selected the American Cancer Society and Four Diamonds Fund as recipients of the money raised.
"He wishes he could be here today," Gary Barnhart said of his son.
Gary Barnhart attended the soccer game, as did Ethan's grandparents, Clarence and Delores Barnhart. His mother, Tanya Barnhart, remained in Hershey with him during the day.
The game brought about some good-natured competition.
"It's not too late to forfeit!" Tom Hoffman, dean of students, yelled to the teenagers during warm-ups.
