Investors Group Under-18s striker Ryan Dawe scored the first goal of his hat trick in the opening three minutes of Monday night’s game against the Sorrento Tactics FC.
The other two game in the final five minutes of the contest, lifting his team to a 3-2 triumph in Corner Brook Molson Senior Men’s Soccer League action at Wellington Street Sports Complex.
Adam Anderson and Lance Ereaut supplied the offence for the losing side.
After Dawe scored at the three-minute mark of the contest, the score remained unchanged until the 36th minute, when Ereaut evened the game 1-1.
