The White Team’s semi-final match against Virginia Tech kicked off Tech’s chase for the cup.
It was Makram Chahine’s day out as he netted a hat trick in brilliant fashion.
Beginning with a beautifully placed header, Chahine opened his tournament scoring account by meeting Jack Fitton’s well-placed cross for 1-0.
For the second, Jordan Richardson darted down the line taking on his man one-on-one and was awarded a penalty kick after being fouled in the box. Chahine stayed cool from the spot and slotted home nicely for 2-0.
Finally, after speedy and careful build-up from the back line, Ali Talaksi served up a delightful cross into the head of Chahine once again where he placed bottom corner for 3-0.
The game finished with a 3-0 win to Tech and a spot in the championship game against the University of Georgia.
