O’Brien’s hat trick helps Drury to 7-0 win over Southwest Baptist

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– The Drury Panthers extended their winning streak to four games as they put up seven goals in a 7-0 victory over Southwest Baptist on Sunday at Harrison Stadium.
Drury stayed perfect in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, improving to 4-0 and 4-3 overall. The Bearcats dropped to 0-6 and 0-4 in the GLVC.
The Panthers scored three goals in the first half, then added four in the second half, and have posted 13 goals in their last two games. Last Sunday, they picked up a 6-0 win on the road at William Jewell.
Drury senior Jamie O’Brien turned in a hat trick scoring three goals and notched his sixth career multi-goal game. The three goals also marked O’Brien’s third career hat trick as well as his second multi-goal game this season.
O’Brien got the Panthers on the board six minutes into the contest on an assist from Trevor Cairns. After Jack Griffith’s goal gave Drury a 2-0 advantage seven minutes later, O’Brien struck again, firing home a shot in the 30th minute.
Drury got on the board eight minutes into the second half on a goal from Logan Favreau, then O’Brien converted on a penalty in the 60th minute to complete the hat trick.
Adem Hamdaoua tacked on two more tallies to round out the Panthers scoring.
