Considering the Smithsburg boys soccer team hasn't scored more than three goals in any game all season, hat tricks have been a rare occurrence. That made Adler Garrett's feat Friday night that much more special. The Leopards' senior striker accounted for all three goals as Smithsburg topped Southern Garrett 3-2 in the first round of the Maryland Class 1A West playoffs. “It feels good, especially after the season we've had,” said Garrett. “It feels good to get a big win, and hopefully we can continue this through the playoffs.” After struggling through a 2-13 season, the Leopards will travel to Allegany on Monday or Tuesday - at least, as long as the weather permits it. Garrett scored the game-winner in the 60th minute on a Ryan Bolton assist.
