Boonville senior soccer player Will Rehagen picked up his second hat trick of the season with three goals in a 4-2 win over Moberly Thursday night in Moberly.
Rehagen, the team’s leading scorer this season, scored goals at the 18, 52 and 76 minute mark.
However, it was Josh Chrisman, who got the Pirates on the board first with a goal at the 9 minute mark on an assist by Rehagen. Then, at the 18 minute mark, Rehagen picked up the first of three goals on an assist by Angel Garcia to extend the lead to 2-0.
Of course Moberly would come back with two unanswered goals at the 25 and 29 minute mark to tie the game at 2-all at the half.
But it was all Boonville after that as Rehagen scored his second goal at the 52 minute mark on an assist again by Garcia to make it 3-2. Then, at the 76 minute mark, Rehagen found the net again with an unassisted goal to complete the scoring.
Boonville soccer coach Kaz Hazell said Moberly came back to tie it up 2-2 before the half had ended. “We had dropped our level a bit in the first half resulting in goals for Moberly,” Hazell said. The second half the boys raised their level and came back responding with two more outstanding goals by Will Rehagen in the half. Theboys played much better this half as they dominated majority of the half leaving it a shutout.”

Goalies Gabe Lorenz and Gage Allison had four and three saves in the match, respectively.
Boonville improved to 8-5-1 overall with the win.
