Alumni Hockey Game 2015 Recap
Mr. Chris Gaffney writes...
The Tenth Annual Priory Hockey Alumni game was held Sunday, Dec. 27 at the Hardees Iceplex in Chesterfield. 25 alumni were joined by 11 current players, making for full rosters. Family and friends of the players were treated to a close match which wasn’t decided until late in the third period. The ‘Blue’ team, coached by former head coach John Notter and former assistant coach Pete Yannakakis was victorious over the ‘White’ team who were led by former head coaches Dr. Mark Faron and John Rourke.
Alumni flew in from as far as Boston and Chicago to attend the game which has become a great holiday tradition. Many of the players and fans stayed around after the game for the ‘social hour’ which followed. Photos from past Priory hockey teams going back over 20 years were enjoyed by both players and their families who gathered after the game.
A big ‘Thank You’ goes out to everyone who helped to organize this annual event, with a special thanks to Vicki Schafale for handling all of the details and to Stephanie Faron who brought out all of the photos from past teams going back to the mid 1990’s.
