SPRING LAKE — Meah Bajt netted a first-half hat trick and finished with five tallies in leading host Spring Lake to a 7-1 victory over Whitehall in a Division 2 girls district soccer final Thursday night.
The prolific senior scored all six of the Lakers’ goals in Tuesday’s 6-1 district semifinal win over Reeths-Puffer. With the first three goals Thursday, that stretched Bajt’s streak to nine straight tallies for her team.
Bajt finished with 11 goals in two district games, giving her a school-record 43 on the season.
