Anzar football to host first game, car wash fundraiser

Hawks play Crystal Springs on Thursday night, set to fundraise Friday afternoon.

Anzar High School's football team will host its first home game this week, and the contest against Crystal Springs Uplands is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at Barragan Field.

Anzar (1-2) is coming off two road losses against two of the tougher 8-man teams in the area (Stuart Hall and Pinewood) and looks to turn things around against Crystal Springs. The Hawks opened the season with a victory over Kings Christian, and Shandon canceled a scheduled home game for Anzar in Week 2.

Following this week's Thursday game, the Anzar team is scheduled to host a fundraiser car wash from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday at San Juan School. All proceeds go toward basic expenses for the program, which must raise more than $12,000 to cover costs like transportation, equipment, lighting and referees for home games. The team will request at minimum $10 donation for vehicles at the car wash.
