Then Mullis went on a roll, acquiring his first hat trick of the season, scoring goals at minute 25, 44, 53 respectively. Whitford, along with Junior Braden Runyon were credited with two of the assists.
Sophomore Hampton Query and freshman Cade Walls were co-recipients of the HCA Battle Ball, an HCA tradition after each game awarded to the player with the best effort, attitude, performance and all-around impact on the outcome of the contest. Both Query and Walls put on a soccer clinic for the fans in attendance of ball possession, accurate distribution to their teammates and shut down defense when called upon.
