Women's soccer: Arin Gilliland
Junior Arin Gilliland recorded her second hat trick of the season on Sunday afternoon, scoring the first three goals in Kentucky's 4-2 win over Alabama on Sunday afternoon. With the three goals, Gilliland now has 10 goals on the season and a team-high 28 points in 2013. Gilliland becomes just the second player in UK history to record two hat tricks in the same season, as she also had a hat trick last Friday night vs. Tennessee. All of Gilliland's goals were scored in the first half (23', 40', 45').
