Last Friday, November 28, was a beautiful day for a soccer game. At Beaufort Academy’s Annual Alumni Soccer Game, 23 alumni, 1 former coach, and 5 current students took the field, with Rob Mathai as the ref and Bill Dalton as the game announcer.
There were members of 17 BA classes represented on the field, including three Andreponts, three Burtons, three Koppernaes’, three Sanfords, and three Walkers. The game ended after two 30-minute tough fought halves, with the Blue Team winning 4-1 over the White Team.
The game was played in memory of two very special Eagle soccer players, William Trask, Sr. (BA ’69) and Alex Apps (BA ’07), and many of their family members and friends were able to attend. Both William and Alex would have loved the day, the game, and of course the many smiles and laughter that were shared.
A special thank you to David Byrne for lining the field, to David Mathai, Joe Bhoi, and Benjamin and Maxfield Trask for helping out during the game, and to Trask & Lynn, CPA, PA for sponsoring the game. All of these volunteers played a big part in making the event a success.
