Lewis’ hat trick helps Flyers to winPublished 1:51am Tuesday, October 9, 2012
The trick was to get some help.
St. Joseph’s Eli Lewis and Southeastern Panthers’ Dylan Miles both turned in hat tricks during Saturday’s soccer game, but Lewis got help from teammates Cole Willis and Haley Glockner as the Flyers rallied for a 4-3 win.
Miles had three goals in the first half for his hat trick as the Panthers took a 3-0 halftime lead.
But Willis scored from 8 yards out on an assist from Glockner as the Flyers got on the scoreboard with 4:27 on the second half clock.
Lewis took over from there with his hat trick. He score from 13 yards out, then made a penalty kick at the 23:55 mark to tie the game, and scored the winning goal from 14 yards away on a long assist pass from Carte with 32:44 into the half.
Flyers’ coach Tim Hopkins lamented about the tale of two halves.
“Coming off three tough road games in a row this week, we did not answer out wake-up call this morning until the second half,” said Hopkins.
“From that point on we eliminated the opposition’s scoring opportunities and took full advantage of ours.”
St. Joseph had 7 saves by goalkeeper Justin Mahlmeister and held a 13-10 advantage in shots on goal.
The Flyers host New Boston at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Senior night activities begin at 5 p.m.
