Crook’s hat-trick streak rolls to four in a row

Scoring three goals in an 80-minute soccer match isn’t supposed to be this easy.

But that’s exactly how Todd Beamer sophomore Holland Crook is making it look. Crook tallied her fourth consecutive hat trick Tuesday night during a 7-0 win over the Spanaway Lake Sentinels at Art Crate Field. The win improved the Titans to 5-0-0 in the South Puget Sound League South Division and 7-0-0 overall. Beamer is trying to roll thorough its SPSL South regular season unbeaten for the second year in a row.

On the season, Beamer has outscored its opponents 38-1, and it’s even worse in SPSL South Division play. The Titans haven’t allowed a single goal in five matches and scored 33. Crook has 13 goals already on the year.

Beamer also got a pair of goals from Kaylee Huie and single goals from Megan Miller and Avery Salisbury.
