Rob Lovejoy returns with a BANG! for Tar Heel soccer on Saturday night:Hat Trick for former Page Pirate
North Carolina junior transfer Andy Craven returned to the College of Charleston Saturday night to play some of his former teammates.
But it was another Tar Heel forward who made the difference in his own return in No. 2 UNC’s 3-0 win against the Cougars (6-8-0).
Rob Lovejoy(Page High School/Greensboro, N.C.), who missed the first 12 games for UNC (11-1-1) while recovering from offseason surgery, scored a hat trick Saturday night after coming in as a substitute in the 31st minute. It was the first hat trick by a UNC player since Alex Dixon in 2009.
“He knows what to expect, so it was natural for him to be able to jump back in and get in the groove,” coach Carlos Somoano said. “And he got a just reward.”
