Southwestern’s Taylor Cole scored a hat trick in Monday’s victory against Rising Sun and teammate Kayla Adkins duplicated that feat on Tuesday in a 4-2 girls soccer win at Charlestown.

Adkins scored two goals in the first half — one coming off an assist from Emma Foley — before Charlestown scored in the opening minute of the second half to cut it 2-1 and eventually tie it 2-2.

However, Foley scored the go-ahead goal and later assisted Adkins on her third goal to complete hat tricks on back-to-back days for Southwestern for back-to-back wins.

Goalkeeper Kate Sampson finished with 15 saves.

“I was proud of our girls being determined and patient. They did not panic and kept their heads and attitudes in the game,” said Southwestern coach Nancy Totten. “I was proud of the integrity and resilience of all of the players.”

Cole, the Rebels’ big scorer from Monday, was not with the team on Tuesday to compete for the Lady Rebels’ cross country team at the Big Blue Invitational at Jennings County.

The Rebels, 7-3, travel to Switzerland County for their next match on Sept. 19.
