Pedlow ended the day with four goals in the Eagles" 7-0 win over the Cougars. Photo by Toni Williams Pedlow boots 'Texas hat trick' against LCC Greg Knight Sports Writer Thanks to an outstanding effort by the entire Golden Eagles soccer squad --and, in particular, the play of freshman forward Brent Pedlow -- Feather River College managed to keep the Lassen Community College Cougars team in the basement of the Golden Valley Conference standings on a 7-0 win last Friday. Pedlow, who hails from Glen Innes, Australia, managed to boot in four goals in a row for FRC, with five shots on goal recorded in a game that saw the Eagles utterly destroy any chances the Cougars might have had for a win. Before Pedlow went on his scoring jaunt, however, sophomore defender Paul Mayes came forward to deliver the first two out of seven goals the Eagles would deliver in the game. With an assist from teammates Gavin Gillies and Dylan Murray, Mayes found the net in the 17th minute. Five minutes later, Mayes took a pass from Jacob Farthing and delivered another shot through the hands of LCC keeper Nicolas Bustamante. And then, throughout the end of the first half and beginning of the second, it was all about the Brent Pedlow show. With Mayes as his passing partner near the mouth of the LCC penalty box and goal, Pedlow pounded home the third score of the game at the 38th minute. Ending the half up 3-0, Pedlow returned in the second half and, along with the rest of the FRC team, was forced to play defense for the next 49 minutes. In that 49th minute, however, Pedlow and Gillies combined for the Australian's second score of the day. A mere three minutes later, in the 52nd minute, Pedlow drove to the goal again, this time with some help from sophomore midfielder Jamie Reid. Already holding a hat trick on the game, Pedlow issued his final offensive mandate in the 78th minute on a drive featuring a second assist from Gillies. The goal, Pedlow's fourth of the day, gave him a "Texas hat trick": four goals scored by one player in one game. Gillies shone in his own right at the endof the game as he:scored the f'mal goal against Lassen for the 7-0 final tally. Keeper Jacob Price managed to log a pair of saves on the day for FRC. Pedlow and forward Sundin Esperance led the team with five shots at the LCC keeper, followed by Mayes, who took four shots of his own during the match: The Eagles-(7-4-2, 6-2) Will travel, to South Lake Tahoe on Friday to face former Lassen head coach Ben Wade s Lake Tahoe Community College squad of Coyotes (74-2, 6-2).
