WILSON -- Will Futrelle and Sam Steed each notched a hat trick (three goals) in Wayne Country Day's 6-1 conquest of Southern Nash in The Brittany -- an inaugural boys' soccer tournament at the J. Burt Gillette Complex -- Saturday morning.
Futrelle tallied goals in the eighth, 55th and 68th minutes. Travis Davis assisted on the first mark. Hyo Won Ha earned the assist on the second goal, a header off a cross. David Wilson's assist helped Futrelle complete his hat trick late in the second half.
Steed collected unassisted goals in the 38th, 48th and 74th minutes.
Wayne Country Day owned a decisive 24-7 advantage in shots on goal against the Firebirds, of the Class 3-A NEW Athletic 6 Conference.
Davis, Kevin Herring and Jeff Franklin emerged the defensive leaders for the Chargers. Herring received the game ball recognizing his sportsmanship during the 80-minute contest.
The ball has the No. 18 on it and honors former Wilson Hunt standout Brittany Willis, who perished in a senseless violent crime during her senior season.
