This Day in History

Sunday, 16 August 1998

In 1998, Columbus Crew rookie forward Stern John scored three goals off the bench during the Crew's 5-3 victory over the Kansas City Wizards. He became the second substitute in league history to net three goals in a game, and he was the first player in MLS history to notch three hat tricks in a season.

All of this was accomplished during a roughly 10-minute stretch at Ohio Stadium. The striker from Trinidad & Tobago scored in the 71st, 79th and 81st minutes, with the second of those goals giving Columbus a 4-3 lead it never would relinquish.
