Sharon Tiger fans turn out for snowy game after tragic crash

Posted: Updated:

ERIE, Pa. - The Sharon Tigers were not able to win in Erie Monday night but the team won the hearts of people from communities from all over our region.

The weather was far from ideal with rain changing to blowing wet snow by kickoff.

But that didn't keep fans from cheering on the team they've been following all season.

A moment of silence was held before the game for the players who could not be here.

For Sharon High School seniors it would take more than just rotten weather to keep them away.

"They're playing their hearts out for Corey and Evan and also for Craig and Gregg who can't be here tonight it means a lot for us to cheer them on and be here to support them all the way through it," says Sharon Senior, Dani Herman.

Senior, Brittany Giovoni says "It's been really hard but having the support from all the different communities and thinking of all the good time we've had with Cory and Evan it's helped us a lot."

Many parents spent the weekend talking to their kids about what had happened and trying to make sure it doesn't happen again.

"You got to be careful when you're out driving pay attention to what's going on just be smart when you're on the road this is very tragic and it's been heavy on my heart," says Sharon parent Michael Rice.

Other parents talked about how thankful they were that so many other communities have reached out to them.

Megan Johnson says, "We have actually people from other communicates come together and support the kids and the staff at the school and the families that suffered the tragic loss and not to forget John who was in the other vehicle as well."

Unfortunately Sharon's football season is over and now is the time for healing.
