That’s three in a row to open SCVAL, El Camino Division play! The Gunn girls stretched their current win streak to three games with a 3-2 win on the road over host Milpitas in a rain-soaked game. Recording her second hat trick of the season, junior forward/midfielder Natalie Hill broke the game open scoring the first three goals of the game. Hill scored early in the 14th minute on a perfectly weighted through ball up the middle from sophomore center midfielder Hailey Leclerc. Early in the second half, Hill converted a penalty kick in the 48th minute and then scored Gunn’s final goal on a first timed shot from the top of the six yard box assisted by senior forward Inger Smuts in the 66 minute. Milpitas scored two goals in the closing minutes to make the score close. The Titans improved to 3-0-0 in league and 5-5-1 overall while Milpitas dropped to 0-2-0 in league and 1-8-0 overall. Gunn’s next game is at home against Monta Vista next Tuesday @ 6pm.
