CAMP ZAMA, Japan – Amaya Peruccio had played defense most of her four years at Zama and scored just once, in her sophomore year, before going on the offensive Thursday evening.

Peruccio scored four straight second-half goals - her first career hat trick plus one - leading the Trojans to a 15-0 rout of Robert D. Edgren on Day 1 of the three-day DODEA-Japan soccer tournament.

“I normally play sweeper, so for me, this was pretty special,” said the Trojans senior, one of three Zama players who notched hat tricks in the match. Pacific co-leader Kayesha McNeill and Midori Robinson each had three goals, McNeill upping her season total to 23.
