After earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors, Auburn soccer’s Carly Thatcher was an honorable mention to the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week.
Thatcher is now the fourth Tiger to be recognized by Top Drawer Soccer though four weeks of play.
The South Carolina native was injured early this season, but made an impactful season-high 27-minute showing against Alabama A&M. Thatcher churned out the 14th hat trick in Auburn soccer history, including the second ever by a freshman.
Thatcher’s hat trick was the first this season by an SEC freshman, and third nationally.
The first two goals of Thatcher’s career ended up in the net only 30 seconds apart, marking the two fastest goals scored by an Auburn player since Tammy Waine scored two in 15 seconds back in 2000.
In the 64th minute, Thatcher netted her third with a left-boot to push Auburn comfortably past Alabama A&M 5-0.
Against No. 1 Florida State, Thatcher logged a new career-high in minutes with 34.
