The alumni worked themselves back into game shape and came away victorious.
“This tradition has become one of the more anticipated events each season,” said John Haezebrouck, head coach. “Alumni from the past five classes were represented, and it shows not only how connected the graduates are to one another, but also to the soccer program and the Everest community as a whole.”
The Mountaineers host Austin Academy at home on Thursday at 7 p.m.
