Encinitas- This past Sunday night, multiple Jedi, Chewbaca and Princess Leia faced off against storm troopers and Darth Vader. The saga played out - not on TV or movie screens - but a Magdalena Ecke YMCA soccer field.
The six on six match of Star Wars characters was held to raise money for 12 year old Micah Hogan, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a degenerative muscle disease.
Donning a Chewbaca costume, Christian Hogan, Micah's Dad, took part in the game.
"Normally we're out here playing a game as part of our co-ed soccer league, getting exercise and trying to win - but this one had meaning," said Christian after the game.
"It feels like an accomplishment to raise money and now it's going toward research that could help your son and all the others affected by this."
The novelty of a Star Wars Game was an added bonus, said Christian, who scored a goal during the match despite the limited vision his furry mask afforded him. The shot drew plenty of "Go Chewie!" cries from the crowd.
