Coggan scores first college hat trick in win over Chico State 10/27 

When Seattle Pacific University signed Valley Christian MVP Jimmy Coggan, they knew they were getting the WCAL’s leading scorer, MVP, and 2-time All League player.  They also knew they were inking a deal with a player whose resume included 1st Team All-CCS, 30+ career goals, two years as team captain, and club soccer accolades a mile long. However, all involved parties wondered how soon this would translate to success at the NCAA level. 

Coggan’s first career college hat trick Wednesday night will serve as notice that he’s beginning to pick up where he left off.  VC fans grew accustomed to his breathtaking finishes and deft runs that SPU now benefits from.  

James entered the game in the 20th minute and broke a scoreless deadlock with 3:25 left in the first half. He took a errant defensive clearance on the left wing and sprinted 35 yards into the box before blasting an 8-yard shot under Wildcats goalie Scott Doty. 

David Selby set-up the next two SPU goals. Selby drove a low cross through the box which Nick Letts (Jr., Dublin, Ca.) flicked to the far post for a wide-open Coggan to bury from 10 yards in the 56th minute.  

Coggan completed his hat trick in the 72 minute, running on to Nate Elmenhurst¹s through pass and scoring from 12 yards. It was the fifth goal of the season for Coggan to go with 3 assists. His 13 points put him at second on the team in scoring. 

SPU (12-2-2) resumes Great Northwest Athletic Conference play Saturday afternoon at top-ranked Seattle University. Big players show up in big games, check back to see how Jimmy did.
