Battling for a cause

Photo Credit: VERN UYETAKE - The Fourth Annual Battle for the Bridge Alumni game was held last week benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Oregon City won the game for the third time, pulling away in the second half.The Fourth Annual Battle for the Bridge was held at Pioneer Stadium in Oregon City last Saturday and the competition, once again, was a huge success in raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Research.

The event continues to expand each year, with this summer also seeing the inception of a golf tournament to raise funds. In the past three years, organizers have raised nearly $60,000 combined for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and they hope to eclipse their record this summer.

Oregon City, which held a 2-1 lead in the series heading into Saturday's game, won again 24-9, pulling away after a close first half.

Longtime West Linn High School coach Ron Chappell was inducted into the game's Hall of Fame along with Oregon City coach Ed Burton.

While the game was originally scheduled to be a one-time event, support has been terrific over the past four years and organizers don't expect that to change in the near future.
