SEATTLE, WA— The University of Washington Huskies got a hat trick performance from red shirt senior forward Scott Menzies (Vancouver, BC) on Thursday night at Husky Soccer Stadium as they shut out Utah Valley 4-0.
Menzies scored in the 40th, 41st and 76th minutes to notch his trifecta. You can watch the hat trick in the goalWA.net video compilation below. (Video sources: @UW_Msoccer and Pac-12.com.)
UW improves to 6-2 on the season.
Menzies is not a starter for the UW, but Head Coach Jamie Clark said after the match: “We think we have two starting number nine forwards. One has to start and one has to come off the bench. A lot of the times we think the guy off the bench will be the difference maker and Menzies was that guy today. I think we are playing such an up-tempo game right now and [a hat trick] is bound to happen. We simply talk about building margins and if we build enough margins we will win.”
