Vikings hold annual alumnae match
On April 19, Northern Vance held its annual alumnae soccer game featuring graduates of Vance Senior High and Northern as well as current Viking players.
Numbers were smaller than normal on a cool, wet day, but the match went on with Marian Hicks Faulkner (Class of 1985), Julia Richardson Falkner (‘85) and Amy Johnson Peralta (‘85) joining Northern head coach Razvan Tegean, three current players and a few guests to play the remaining alums.
Marian Faulkner scored two goals to lead her select side to a 4-1 victory although the game goes down as a 1-0 win by forfeit for the alums, who now have an overall record of 14 wins, two losses and five ties in the annual Easter weekend event.
Julia Falkner and Tegean also scored and Gabby Matthews (‘13) had the goal for the official alumnae team.
Danielle Pratt Edwards (‘05) was named the Outstanding Alumnae Player of the Match.
The classes of ‘93, ‘08, ‘09, ‘11 and ‘12 were also represented.
