Michaela Dooley scored her first career hat trick in the Kentucky women's soccer team's 7-0 victory against Toledo on Sunday afternoon at the Bell Soccer Complex.
It was a night of firsts for the Cats, as senior Allie Gorgol and freshman Sophie Babo both scored their first career goals and freshman Becca Callison tallied her first career point.
Dooley scored UK's only goal in the first half before it turned into a rout.
The Cats scored six goals in a single half for just the second time in school history, the other coming against Bellarmine in 1992.
Never miss a local story.
Dooley, a junior, also scored in the 60th and 66th minute to cap off the hat trick. She also had two assists.
Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Jensen posted a shutout for the third time in four matches. She has a 0.51 goals against average.
Next up for UK is its annual "Battle of the Bluegrass" matchup with Louisville at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Lexington.
Admission for fans who wear blue will be $1, and they will also get free rally towels for the match.
Also, in an effort to break the program's home attendance record, fans will get free UK soccer trading cards.
Ueland wins it for Irish
Former Henry Clay star Thomas Ueland, now a freshman at Notre Dame, scored in the 109th minute of a scoreless match to give the fourth-ranked Irish a victory at No. 14 Indiana on Sunday.
Ueland's golden goal came with 1:28 left in the final game of the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic in front of a raucous 4,226 fans in Bloomington.
A cross from the left flank by Blake Townes found Ueland in the 18-yard box in the 109th minute. Ueland made the most of the opportunity, sending a high shot past Indiana goalkeeper Colin Webb and into the right corner of the net.
Another former Kentucky soccer star, goalie Chris Hubbard, posted the shutout for Notre Dame. He's a junior from Louisville Trinity.
"We didn't give away chances, and the great thing Chris does is he stays so calm," Notre Dame Coach Bobby Clark said. "He has a calm presence about him. He did not have a lot of saves, but what he does is handle crosses well. There were some big boys in there, well over six feet, and he remains very calm. Over the weekend I was very proud of this group of players, it's very hard to single individuals out."
