Freshman forward Chaz Burnett was selected as the New Jersey Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week on Monday.
Burnett recorded his first career hat trick with three goals along with an assist as Montclair State rolled to a 7-3 victory over Kean last Wednesday evening.
Trailing 2-1 late in the first half, Burnett scored twice in a span of three minutes to turn the one-goal deficit into a one-goal advantage. He headed in a cross to tie the game and then gave MSU the lead for good pouncing on a loose ball in the box with 2:26 remaining in the first half. He assisted on Montclair's sixth goal inside the final 15 minutes and scored the last goal with 4:35 left.
Burnett is currently second on the team in scoring with 15 points and second with six goals. He ranks fifth in the NJAC in points and fifth in goals.
