2012 Squad Takes Alumni Game, 2-0
April 3, 2012
SEATTLE - The Husky men's soccer team played their annual alumni game at the Dempsey Indoor last Saturday.
The current Huskies faced a talented veteran squad which featured eight former UW players that went on to play professionally, but the current team didn't let that high level of experience intimidate them.
Redshirt freshman Thomas Spragg netted the first goal for the current Huskies, and senior Abdul Aman scored in the second half. Aman just found out that he received a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA and will be back with the Huskies in 2010.
"The alumni game is always a great event," said head coach Jamie Clark. "Here at Washington, we have produced so many professional players, that you know it's always going to be a talented team our present team will face. I believe there were eight former professional players out there today, so the level of play was good."
The former players that participated include: Aaron Heinzen, Bill May, Derek Crismier, Ian Russell, Jeff Aumell, John Graves, Kevin Forrest, Lee Eckmann, Marty Rood, Matt Fischer, Rob Lampman, Ron Jepson, Scott Jenkins, Skip Jinneman, Stefan Cobb, Stephan Englbrick, Tim Lawson, Viet Nguyen, Daniel Gray, Nick James, Casey McCool, Jamie Finch and current UW assistant Brandon Prideaux.
Ron Jepson, the first men's soccer coach for UW, also attended the game.
The men's soccer team travels to Vancouver, B.C., to play Simon Frasier at 7 p.m. on April 6.
