On Saturday June 23rd, 2012, he Alumni of the Gillespie – Mt. Olive High School Soccer Program took the field again in the 4th annual Alumni Soccer Game.
With 28 Alumni present for the game they divided up equally into a white and yellow team. The first half of the game had the white team leading by 2 goals scored by Zac Ruyle and Anthony Obernuefemann respectively.
Heath Wayman recorded a shutout for the white team during the first half. The yellow team came back early with a goal by Austin Hendricks, who scored again with less than three minutes left in the game to tie it up against goalie Dylan Anderson. Tyler Kissell shut down the white team’s scoring as keeper for the whole game for the yellow team.
At 2-2 there was an overwhelming decision to go into overtime to determine a winner. 4 minutes into the the first overtime period Zac Ruyle scored again giving the white team a 3-2 Overtime Victory against the yellow team..
I would to thank all the alumni who came out to play and support the soccer program. I would also like to thank Art Roemer and Mark Stewart who volunteered as guest officials for the program
