Kelsey Steck provided all three Warrior goals as #2 Westmont (7-1, 2-0 GSAC) defeated San Diego Christian (2-3-1, 0-1) in a Golden State Athletic Conference game at Cuyamaca Community College. This is the second time in her career that Steck has recorded a hat trick and it is the 15th hat trick in Warrior history. Steck’s other three-point game was against Arizona Christian on October 19, 2013.
“Kelsey got two pretty quickly and they were two very good goals,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “Destinee Adams came into the game and had a presence right away. Destinee elevated and had a flick on that went off the keeper. Kelsey was able to finish in the side netting calm, composed, but with authority.”
Steck’s second goal, which came less than four minutes later, was a header off a corner kick from Mallory Mitchell.
“The last few games we have been getting a lot of (balls crossed into) in the box and not getting on the end,” said Kiely. “We have been working on that a lot and it was great to see Kelsey receive the fruit from her labor.”
