HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - Jen Hoffman wasn't merely thrilled Tuesday night, she was downright giddy.
And she had plenty of reasons to be.
Not only did the Hedgesville senior record a hat trick while sparking her team to a 5-1 victory over Jefferson in the Region 2, Section 4 soccer quarterfinals, but she established a school record for most goals in a career to boot.
"(It felt) awesome," said the Eagles forward. "Winning the game meant more than achieving a record. But if I can do both in the same game, why not?"
Hoffman's mark of 83 career goals eclipses Leslie Kirk's record of 82 set last year. Hoffman also holds the record for most goals in a season with 38, set last year.
