AURORA | A different type of football gets to shine on Friday night at Aurora Public Schools Stadium, as the best players from the past boys soccer season in the East Metro Athletic Conference get together for the last time on the pitch.
A mix of players selected to the All-EMAC first and second teams for the 2021 season — including quite a few from Aurora programs Gateway, Hinkley, Rangeview and Vista PEAK — take the field for a 7 p.m. contest that is free and open to the public.
The home team will be coached by Hinkley’s Abigail Hinga — the EMAC’s Coach of the Year — while the away team that includes league player of the year Diego Flores of Adams City will be headed by Alejandro Garcia of Gateway (which won the league championship) plus Northglenn’s Ernesto Medina.
