Jorissen, Ortega each have hat tricks in Hart win over Fremont
Sep 21, 2022
FREMONT — Bryce Jorissen and Guillermo each scored a hat trick on Wednesday and led the Hart Pirates to a 9-1 victory over Fremont.
Jorissen exploded for a hat trick over a 6-minute stretch of the first half of the West Michigan Conference game at Fremont.
It was the first time the Pirates had recorded a mercy rule victory in the conference in about a decade, and stretched their win streak to three in a row.
The Pirates found a groove where they could split Fremont’s centerback and fullback. That’s where Jorissen was able to break through twice for goals.
Tony Rayo was able to find Jorissen twice with angled switches through the lines, his third came from a cross from Ortega.
Fremont scored on a through ball that found their striker one-on-one with keeper Kyan Clark.
Hart started the second half off strong with Ortega dropping from striker and Adan Cruz breaking into the space behind.
Cruz was tripped in the box for a penalty kick at 37:33, Ortega would convert for the first in his hat trick run.
Ortega got in behind the Packer defense again and fired a shot passed the keeper with 36:23 left in the game.
Next Jorissen would find Ortega in behind the defense to score his third goal of the night with 35:18 left in the game, completing his hat trick in just over two minutes.
Scoring next for the Pirates was sophomore Emmanuel Ortega for his first career varsity goal with 31 minutes left to play.
The Pirates were gifted a free kick on top of the box from a keeper error by Fremont, where Clark (who was pulled from keeper) would get his chance on net.
He ripped a shot to the opposite corner forcing a good save out of the Fremont keeper. Jorissen, however, was hungry for more and hustled in for the easy tap in to make it 8-1 for the Pirates.
The Pirates final goal would come from a corner kick that the Fremont keeper mishandled and senior captain Tony Rayo would tap in to close out the victory with 23 minutes to go, when the game was ended by the eight-goal lead rule.
Hart outshot Fremont 18-8. Ben Mellema made seven saves for the Packers and Caleb Vissia made the other two. Clark made seven saves for the Pirates.
Fremont dropped to 4-8-1 overall and 1-5 in the conference. Fremont hosts Greenville in a non-league contest on Friday night.
The win brings the Pirates record to 6-4-1 on the season and 2-3-1 in the conference. The Pirates next host their home tournament this Saturday where they will face Kingsley, Pentwater and Ravenna.
