Hardin’s hat trick leads Lady Eagles to win


ELIZABETHTOWN — Ashley Hardin fired in a trio of goals on Tuesday, and the hat trick was enough to give East Bladen a 3-0 Four County Conference win over visiting West Bladen.

After her first two shots of the match careened off the posts, Hardin pounded the Lady Knights’ net with a scoring shot early in the first half off a feed from Hannah Devane, then gave the Lady Eagles a 2-0 lead with another scoring shot after a pass from Patience Ward.

East Bladen added to its lead with Hardin’s third goal of the match in the second half to close out the scoring.
