Palmer Trinity’s senior, Lucas Pagano has a hand in every one of the 8 goals scored in the the boys varsity soccer team’s win today over Archimedian: a feat that might never be equaled by any player in future, and has possibly never been achieved before.
Pagano scored the first 3 goals himself and then assisted on 4 goals and got the double assist on the remaining goal. Pagano could have actually be credited with the the assist on remaining goal as well, except the player he passed to had his shot saved by the keeper. The rebounded was then scored by another player: hence Pagano got the double assist on this goal.
It is rare for any player to score 3 goals in a game, but for a player to also get 4 of 5 assists on the other goals and a double assist on the remaining goal is amazing. And, Pagano also sat out for a considerable time during the game.
Pagano could easily have scored more goals himself had he not decided to ‘share the wealth’. He definitely had opportunities to score, but instead chose to pass, and at other times sat back just behind the front two, and looked for ways to create goals rather than go to goal himself and try to score.
Lucas Pagano feat might just go down in the history books.
