Hoppers teenage striker Javorn Stevens became the second player to record a hat-trick in this year’s Warriors Cup when he took advantage of a generous 5Ps defence to make his mark on the tournament.
Stevens – who netted two goals for the national U15 team in the CONCACAF tournament in Cayman Islands late last month – helped the Greenbay side to win 6-1 on Sunday at YASCO.
He emulated the feat achieved by Freeman’s Ville’s teenage striker Darius Hector last week.
Stevens, the youngest of four brothers in the Hoppers side, equalized for Hoppers on 24 minutes after 5Ps had taken a surprise early lead through Kelroy Carmichael. He hammered home his second and third goals either side of half-time as Hoppers stepped up a gear after the restart to score four unanswered goals.
His brother, Jamoy Stevens, headed in to make 3-1, and Tyler Anthony and Franklyn Samuel completed the scoring. Hoppers share the lead in Group D with Fort Road and both sides will meet in the group decider on Thursday at YASCO.
Bargain Motors Grenades and Freeman’s Ville endured their second successive draw of the tournament when they labored to a goal-less draw in the second match of the double-header.
