In a game where Keene State College defeated Green Mountain College 13-2, KSC forward Promise Kpee scored five goals for the Owls.
Not only did the 13 goals tie the KSC record for team goals in a game, but Kpee’s five goals broke the record for goals in a game by one player, a record that had been standing since 2003.
Three of Kpee’s goals came in the first half, the first of which only occurred
46 seconds into play. Kpee followed it up just over two minutes later by netting his second of the game.
Kpee was far from done, as he tallied his third goal of the game at the 12:01 mark of the first half.
Kpee wasted little time in the second half as well, as his fourth goal of the game came only 55 seconds into the frame.
Kpee’s fifth and final game came at the 55:09 mark of the second half, giving the Owls a commanding 9-1 lead.
Kpee, a sophomore from Manchester, N.H., was the LEC Rookie of the Year last season, as he scored seven goals in eight games.
