Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Academy’s senior midfielder Mallory Burman turned a hat-trick in the first half, August 29th at Winn Field, before adding a fourth goal after intermission to lead the Lady Cougars past Northwest High School, 7-2.
For Burman, who has verbally committed to Austin Peay State University as a 2014 recruit, the hat-trick came on the first three goals of the match for Clarksville Academy, (3-2).She scored her first goal, unassisted in the sixth minute, followed by assisted goals in the 14th (assist Bailey Foote) and 24th minutes (assist Anna Cherry).
“Mallory has been playing very well for us the whole season,” Clarksville Academy coach Mary Beth Burchett said. “But for her to put four goals in the back of the net, it was fun to watch.”
Of the first three goals the second one was the one that really gapped your attention, with the cross from Foote coming in high across the front of the goal and Burman going high get a foot on it and redirected it into the upper left corner of the net for the score.
“That was a collegiate type of goal that you just don’t see in high school,” Burchett said. “A one-touch volley, upper left corner, upper 90, that’s just beautiful.”
Foote would close out the first half scoring with an unassisted goal in the 31st minute to give the Lady Cougars a 4-0 lead at halftime.
“In the first half we just didn’t do a very good job of passing and controlling the ball,” Northwest coach Randall Davis said. “But we’re a young team with only one senior and two juniors, the rest are freshmen and sophomores – but we’re going to be OK, we have some talent it’s just a matter of putting it all together.”
In the second half, Clarksville Academy putted right back up where they left off in the first half, scoring just two minutes into the half, when Abby Martin beat the Northwest keeper high into the left-side corner to make it 5-0.
The final two goals of the match for the Lady Cougars came on breakaways, with Cherry scoring in the 50th minute and Burman in the 55th.
Northwest (1-3) got on the board in the 58th minute on a goal by Tania Tejero, off an assist by Taylor Senseney.
