YORK, PA – York College is proud to announce that
men’s soccer athlete Justin Kaiser
(Bradenburg, KY / Menchville
VA.) has been named the Spartan Athlete of the Week
for the week ending October 6.
Kaiser helped the Spartans take a come from behind, double
overtime thriller 2-1 victory over the visiting Christopher Newport
team on the big Fall Fest Day.
The Spartans had to battle back from a first half 1-0 deficit
all the way into the second overtime. Justin entered the game, not
at his usual defender position, as fresh legs for the Spartans. The
team pushed the ball quickly down the field
and Christopher Gillespie(Chapel
Hill, N.C. / Chapel Hill) collected the loose ball to send
over to Kaiser. Justin made the most of the opportunity and
fired a tough low ball to the far side of the goal to give the
Spartans the game-winning goal. Kaiser made his first
collegiate goal a memorable game winner.
Justin Kaiser is a sport management major and is the son
of Phil and Kathy Kaiser.
