Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but Robbie Fowler scored a hat trick for Perth Glory in a 3-1 home win against my Melbourne Victory yesterday in The A-League. Perth had lost 9 and drawn 1 of their last ten games (after going undefeated in the first five games of the season), so you can imagine how happy they are to have god on their side.
After scoring a few early in the season, Robbie has been unfit, injured, and had gone AWOL for a bit, although Perth Glory claimed they knew he had gone back "home" for a bit.
But he was certainly "up for it" yesterday. He had a decent chance in the first five minutes that he took early with a bit of a toe poke that was well saved by the Victory 'keeper. He then won a slightly dubious penalty and stepped up to take it himself. His penalty was not one to remember, but the 'keeper knocked it straight into Robbie's path and he bundled it back in with his right foot.
There was no header to make it a "perfect hat trick", but there was a beautiful finish to round it all out.
