Coach Arnie Dick lead our men’s MEI alumni team to a thrilling 2 point win over our current Sr. Boys team at the recent bball program fundraising event on January 2.
The Senior Boys basketball team jumped on the alumni team early and a quickly ran up a double digit lead. Coach D calmed the storm with a few time-outs; he tweaked his line-ups and the alumni slowly started to battle back.
With big games from Jesse Smith, Jarris Neufeld and Tyson Barkman, and tenacious defence by Liam Neufeld, the alumni chipped away at the lead and finally went ahead in the 4th quarter. It was a back and forth game that saw the alumni gritting out the win by 2 points in the end.
After the game Shawn Kelly cooked up some burgers for the alumni and the current roster. It was a great event and we cannot wait to do it next year.
Next Alumni Night is January 31
