EVERETT, WA— Chris Jepson couldn’t stop scoring, and his Hammers kept on winning Saturday night as they trounced Sporting Everett 12-3 at the Everett Soccer Arena.

Jepson scored 7 goals, a new high-water mark for a player in the 3-year history of the WISL. “He was on fire,” said Hammers GM Marc Ronney. Jepson is the ultimate hometown hero, born in Bellingham and having attended Sehome High School, then Whatcom Community College, then Western Washington University.

Jepson scored 1 in the first quarter, 1 in the second, 2 in the third and then helped the Hammers run away by scoring 3 more in the fourth quarter. He also added an assist.

The win clinched at least second place for the Hammers as the playoff race continues.

A few weeks back Bellingham’s Richard Henderson scored 6 goals in a match to set the previous Hammers mark. Jepson now holds the new indoor / outdoor single-match record with 7.

Bellingham United goals: Chris Jepson (7), Brendan Quilici, Rene Caro, Kurtis Pedersen, Uriel Herrera, Richard Henderson.

Sporting Everett goals: Lucas Dourado, Guillermo Rodriguez, Jeff Renslo.
