Wall's Hat Trick Leads Covenant Soccer To 5-0 Win At LaGrange

Saturday, September 25, 2021
Rachel Wall recorded her first career hat trick and added an assist, while Kailey Burrell and Abby White scored goals to lead the Covenant women's soccer team to a 5-0 rout of LaGrange on the road on Saturday.

Covenant (4-4-1, 1-0-0 USA South) has scored 13 goals over the last three matches.

Wall registered two of her scores in the opening half as the Scots built a 4-0 lead after 45 minutes. The freshman helped Covenant open the scoring as she fed a pass to Burrell, who scored from short range, to give the Scots a 1-0 lead in the eighth minute.
The goal was Burrell's eighth of the season.

A foul in the box in the 14th minute led to Wall converting her first penalty kick of the season and make it a 2-0 lead. Just over six minutes later, Wall was back at it again as she beat the LaGrange keeper for her second score of the match, assisted by Burrell, to give the Scots a 3-0 lead in the 20th minute.

Covenant capped the scoring in the first half with White's first goal of the year. In the 38th minute. Mae Pierce slotted a pass to White inside the box and the sophomore scored from there to make it a 4-0 score.

In the second half, Wall culminated the scoring with her third goal of the match as she found the back of the net in the 65th minute. The three goals give Wall four on the year, while her assist on Burrell's eventual game-winner was her first of the year.

Covenant peppered LaGrange keepers Maurie White and Leila Moss with shots all day. The Scots held a 26-8 shot edge, including 16-5 on target.

Lucy Sandhoff and Leilani Brown combined for the shutout, the third clean sheet of the season for the Scots. Sandhoff made two saves in the first half and Brown came on to make three saves in the second half as the Covenant defense limited LaGrange's opportunities throughout the contest.

LaGrange (1-3, 0-1 USA South) keeper White made seven saves.

Covenant returns to Scotland Yard on Wednesday for a key USA South West Division match with Maryville. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
