With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, Millington Trojan senior Ethan Dupree sports a holiday themed hat after scoring 3 goals for a hat-trick against Ripley Tuesday evening at USA Stadium.

The Millington Trojan Soccer team opened the 2016 season in a new league and at their new home.

But familiar face, senior Ethan Dupree stole the show with a hat trick helping the Trojans win their District 15-2A debut over the Ripley Tigers 5-0 at USA Stadium.

Millington jump ahead 1-0 in the first half courtesy of a Miguel Roque goal.

The Ripley Tigers were hanging around throughout the first half. Then the Trojans’ ball possession seemed to tire out Ripley.

That was Dupree’s cue to take over the game. After several minutes of shaking and baking Tiger defenders, Dupree’s dribbling started to produce goals.

Dupree scored his first of three goals early in the second half to make the score 2-0.

Millington went ahead 3-0 when Hawkins blasted a goal from 25 yards out into the back of the net.

Dupree put the game away later in the second half with a pair of goal for the hat trick.

Dagen noted it was the passing that helped Millington earn the opening day victory 5-0.
