2004 ALUMNI GAME

2004 Men's Soccer Alumni Team
With a solid group of 18 players back, spanning a gap of 30 years, the Wesleyan men's soccer alums took on the current varsity squad Sunday, Sept. 5 on North Field in the annual contest.  In attendance were:  (sitting in front) - Rick Ferri '04.  Front Row (L to R) - Padraig Hughes 03, Ben Harvey '01, Jon Medwid '00, Noah Levine '02, Eric Steffen '00, Rich Valentino '03, Chris Feige '04, Jon Hecht '04, Oliver Henzler '97.  Back Row (L to R) - R.T. Treveloni '02, Seth Sholes '82, Bob Birney '81, Marion Stoj '74, Scott Kessel '88, James Kiehle '64 (referee), Alessandro Angelini '00, Phil King '83, Nick Vincent '04.  The game was scoreless for the opening 85 minutes thanks to excellent goalkeeper from Levine who stopped numerous good scoring chances by the varsity. The alums got their best scoring chance when Ferri found himself alone in the middle but had his point-blank shot smothered by Matt Gnall '08 midway through the second half.  The varsity broke the tie with five minutes to go on a header by Chris Brown '07 just inside the near post from 12 yards out off a feed from Zach Steinberg '08 and held on for the win.

Noah Levine '02 was very busy in the goal for the alums, making many outstanding saves. Rich Valentino '03 took a moment away from the action to perform his famous "chicken dance."

Alessandro Angelini '00 moves past Evan Berding '05 with Marion Stoj '74 ready for a run. Eric Steffen '00 was a quick study from the previous picture and leaves the Cardinals behind.
Oliver Henzler '97 Scott Kessel '88
Oliver Henzler '97 did not break his ankle on this play.  Who are those people looking at the action from the sidelines? Scott Kessel '88 takes a free kick as Nick Vincent '04 conserves his energy.
