Cindy Porter McLaughlin and Alan Kochis Referee the Ellsworth-Sumner Girl's Game January 31, 2014[/caption]Notice anything different about the whistles around the referee's necks this week in Eastern Maine? Yes, that's right, the whistles are pink! Through the week ending February 1, 2014 all the referees have been using pink whistles to signify their unity in helping to defeat cancer. As a matter of fact, they're taking it a step further too, as they are donating portions of their game checks to helping to defeat cancer. So go easy on the referee if they blow a foul against your team, remember their tweeting for a great cause!
