Familiar faces – past and present – got together at Rundlett Middle School on Thursday for the Concord High School boys’ soccer alumni game.

The annual event, which brings former players back for an exhibition contest against the current varsity squad, serves as a good preseason litmus test for the Tide as it gears up for what it hopes is another championship season.

After winning the Division I state title in 2017, Concord came close to a repeat before falling to Bedford, 2-0, in last year’s semifinals to finish 13-4-2.

The Tide will open the season at Nashua South on Sept. 4 before heading to Memorial Field on Sept. 6 to host Salem for the home opener.
