LOS ANGELES, CALIF. - In what USC head coach Ali Khosroshahin becomes a popular and regular tradition, the current USC women's soccer team hosted former Trojan stars for a spring Alumni Game at McAlister Field on Sunday (April 15). The event brought home a strong turnout of Women of Troy, whom Khosroshahin and his current Trojans would like to honor and thank for their participation in the event.
"It was a great day," Khosroshahin said. "We were honored to have the former players come out, and I'd like to see this happen every spring."
Fifteen former Trojans took the field to square off against the 2007 edition of Trojans. The current squad punched in a pair of goals against their respected predecessors, before a penalty kick was awarded to the alums. Rosa Anna Tantillo buried the shot, bringing the final score to 2-1 with the 2007 Trojan team pocketing the win after three 30-minute frames of action.
"The alums used a creative lineup and put forth a valiant effort against a much fitter team," Khosroshahin added. "They showed their level of experience in the way they approached the match. We're looking forward to future alumni events and hope more former players will join us in the future."
USC thanks the following Trojans for coming out and playing in Sunday's Alumni Game... get ready for next year!
