Jefferson's Kayla Brown scored a hat trick Friday night in the Lady Dragons' 4-0 thumping of visiting Social Circle.
With Jefferson playing a regular season game in Memorial Stadium for the first time, Brown gave the Lady Dragons a 2-0 halftime lead with scores in the fourth minute and sixth minute. She capped her three-goal night with a score in the 56th minute. The victory improved Jefferson to 3-0-1 on the year and 3-0 in region play.
"Kayla — her foot skills are awesome," Jefferson coach Todd Parker said. "She knows how to handle the ball. If she's up front, she'll take it in and she'll take the shots."
Parker added, "Kayla can make the ball sing. She really can. Her and Stephanie (Lamm) can kick."
Lamm provided the Lady Dragons' only other score, with her goal coming in the 42nd minute.
Meanwhile, goalie Emma Pruitt recorded the Dragons' second shutout of the year.
"Emma Pruitt has played her best game yet for me … awesome game," Parker said. "We've been practicing on catching the ball and she's doing a very good job."
Parker added that defenders Kylee Clay and Isabella Hisky "played great in the center and that's what we needed."
