Jordan Cooper scored a first half hat-trick to pace the Genesee Community College men's soccer team to a 4-1 victory over Cayuga Community College on Wednesday night.
Cooper netted the first goal of the game in the 20th minute of the first half to give the Cougars the early lead. He followed with a second goal just nine-minutes later thanks to an assist from Ryan Burns. Ben Polk set Cooper up for his third goal in the 40th minute before Nathan Rose made it 4-0 after cashing in on a corner cross from Aaron Dunks with just over three-minutes left in the opening period.
Genesee was held scoreless in the second half and gave up a Cayuga goal late, but shut the door and held on for the victory.
Cameron Evans made four saves in net, playing all 90 minutes. Cooper's hat-trick were his first three goals of the season.
The Cougars improve to 4-3 overall and will host Erie Community College this Saturday for a 3 p.m. start.
