Comets Reunion Game

Edmond Rugova, Gino Schiraldi and Vlatko Andonovski discuss strategies at half time (or they are trying to catch their breath)...


Warren Westcoat smothering a shot, notice the current Comets players checking out the previous generations...


Kia being surprised by Rugova...


Kevin Zimmerman making a save (?)


I think the white team led by Jim Schwab ended up winning by a goal (Shane Steadman scored a bunch) but really the fans were the winners. Seeing many of the great former Comets and Attack players on the field again brought back a lot of fun memories for fans and the players alike. While some of the players did not move around quite as well as they used to, they showed they still have some of that old skill.

Goran Hunjack looks like he is only a few weeks removed from playing...
Westcoat still has those goalie moves...
Rugova hasn't forgotten how to poach...
Robi Goff still has the hair (which is more than a lot of the players can say)...

And thanks to all the players for showing up and the Comets for organizing the event. Hopefully they can make this a yearly event and bring even more old guys, (I mean fan favorites) out next year.

More photos of the old guys...

  1. I knew Edmond back in 92 when he was coaching several teams and the those kids learned so much and did great at the games. You could tell just by watching the respect they had for him. He cared for all of them as if they were his own. His previous career made him a passionate and highly experienced coach. How great it must have felt to play with fellow comrads and the fans watching on! COMETS RULE!TVH
