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.
