Elected officials from the Bronx and Queens battled it out on the football field, playing for bragging rights while supporting the troops.

Assemblyman Michael Benedetto representing the Bronx and Assemblyman Michael Den Dekker from Queens led their respective teams on Saturday, November 1 at the Lehman High School football field.

The touch football game raised money for the Wounded Warriors Project and USO, and ended in a 7-7 tie.
