UnityPoint Health St. Luke's holds "Pizza-eating contest" for Children's Miracle Network

Today is "National Pizza Day" and to celebrate, UnityPoint Health St. Luke's hosted a very special contest between Sioux City's two semi-pro football teams.

The Sioux City Bandits indoor league team took on the Sioux City Stampede outdoor league team in a Casey's Pizza-eating contest.

Competitors on both sides quickly got "in the zone."

"I lost count after like seven or eight, I'm not sure. She just kept dropping two off at a time and I just started folding them and eating them like a sandwich after that," said Bandits right tackle Darius Barnes.

The Bandits ate the most slices in 5 minutes, winning 27 to 22.

The teams were also selling season tickets at the event and donating a portion of the proceeds back to the Children's Miracle Network.

"The biggest thing I enjoyed the most was just watching the guys together, the Bandits and the Stampede. We have a great relationship over the years, so anything the Stampede and the Bandits can do on a great cause like the Children's Miracle Network, we're all for it, so it was a lot of fun," said Stampede co-owner Jason Garnand.

This isn't the only time this year the two teams will square off.

They're expected to meet up on the field at the Tyson later this spring.
