War Ball fundraiser nets $900 for Shoal River Middle School (PHOTOS,VIDEO)

Like in dodge ball, rival teams must eliminate other teams by throwing foam balls at each other. The team with the most players left standing at the end of a game wins the match.

"It's just fun," participant Ryan Watson, 14, said.

More than 100 students played the game in the gymnasium, and several wore capes and sported logos of favorite superheroes, like Superman, the Flash and Captain America. A few students wore chicken and banana costumes.

The council — which raised money by selling $5 admission tickets and concessions — plans to schedule another war ball benefit later this year.
