Boys Win 1st Annual John Novotny Memorial Soccer Game

Posted Sunday, October 08, 2006 by Brian Fitzpatrick
In the first Annual 'John Novotny Memorial Soccer Game' the Albertus Magnus Boys defeated Tappan Zee 1-0. The game, which was a part of Albertus' 2006 Homecoming weekend, was played in honor of John Novotny class of 1990. John, who passed away on February 17, 2006, played soccer, basketball and lacrosse during his four years at Albertus.

The boys dedicated their new goals to John in a pregrame ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Novotny along with John's brothers, Kevin, Robert and Michael were presented with a game ball signed by all of the members of the team.

The boys wore memorial game t-shirts during the game with John's number '13' on the sleeve. The only goal of the game was scored by Kevin Peters, who unbelievably wears number '13'. Although the goal was officialy unassisted, I have a feeling John was helping us out.
