2013-14 Rewind: Top Moments in Wolverine Athletics

Moment 8: McManus nets first-half hat trick as women's soccer routs Juniata in ECAC quarterifnals

Many soccer players don't score three goals for the entirety of the career, still fewer three goals in a season. To net a hat trick- scoring three goals in a single game- is one of the top offensive milestones in a player's career and few achieve it.

On November 13, it took senior forward Becky McManus less than 35 minutes, as the Wolverines cruised to a 6-0 victory over a strong Juniata team in the quarterfinals of the ECAC South Championship tournament on their own College Field.

The Eagles entered the tournament as the fifth-seed with an impressive 14-5 record, but they never quite looked like it against the fourth-seeded Wolverines. McManus scored two goals in the game's first five minutes and, following a goal from senior forward Sam Weber, added another in the 35th minute to give Grove City a commanding 4-0 halftime lead.

Weber added another goal in the second half while junior Nikki Youngs added a late goal to close the scoring. Senior Tiffany Yost and junior Kristi Lathrop combined for the shutout in goal.
