Striker Florence Dadson scored a hat-trick in Robert Morris’ 5-1 win over Webber International University on Saturday.
Compatriot Linda Eshuan opened the scoring in the 17th minute off of a Cindy Castillo corner kick.
RMU didn’t waste any time in upping the lead to 2-0, as Linda Eshun fired a shot off of the crossbar 55 seconds later with Florence Dadson heading in the rebound for the first of her three goals on the day and her eighth of the season.
Dadson would add her second goal of the game before the half in the 41st minute, slotting home a shot from just inside the Warriors’ penalty box on an assist from Linda Eshun.
RMU stretched its lead to 4-0 in the 47th minute when defender Karina Munoz cleared a ball from midfield that found its way through Webber International goalkeeper Makenzie Vance’s hands and into the goal.
The goal was Munoz’ first of 2013.
Webber International answered back three minutes later on a shot from Ciera Abundez that found the top corner to cut the RMU lead to 4-1.
However, the Eagles backline limited the Warriors’ chances for the remainder of the game and Florence Dadson finished off her “hat trick” in the 79th minute, scoring a breakaway goal on a great ball over the top from Karina Munoz.
Dadson now has 10 goals on the season and this was her second hat trick in 2013.
