STEVENSVILLE - Kelsey Brangoccio was a difference maker for the Hamilton girls' soccer team Thursday afternoon.
Brangoccio did all of the scoring and the Broncs retained their status as the team to beat in the Southern A with a 3-0 league win over Stevensville.
Brangoccio gave the Broncs an early lead by scoring the first goal of the match in the fourth minute of play. But Hamilton failed to break through for the remainder of the first half.
Brangoccio tallied just five minutes into the second half and completed her hat trick 10 minutes later.
Ali Stahl made two saves and Sam Pederson made one as the Broncs upped their record to 5-0 in league play and 7-2 overall.
"We're continuing to improve as the season goes along and we're much more competitive than we were at the beginning of the year," said Stevensville coach Kevin Hagan. "But you have to give Hamilton full credit. They're definitely the strongest team in the conference."
Yellowjacket goalkeeper Anna Tom made seven saves as Stevensville dropped to 3-2-1, 4-4-1.

Columbia Falls 7, Polson 4
POLSON - A trio of hat tricks made for a very entertaining match. The WildKats would take a commanding 5-1 lead into the half on the strength of a pair of Danielle Delventhal goals and a hat trick by McKenzie Kiser. But the Lady Pirates opened the second half with a vengence when Reegan von Wildenradt drove the ball into the net with just seconds having ticked off the clock. She would further accessorize the score by getting Polson's first hat trick of the season several minutes later. Then Jordan Hinshaw capitalized on the scrambling after a blocked penalty kick just shy of the three-quarter mark to pull Polson within a goal 5-4. Unfortunately for the home team, the WildKats weren't finished with their scoring fiesta. Kiser would pad her hat trick with another goal and Delventhal claiming her own hat trick with a score with just 7 minutes remaining in the game. Lady Pirate Jacie Morrison made some spectacular saves to keep Polson close in the second half.
Columbia Falls improved to 5-1 in league play, 7-2 overall. Polson fell to 1-4 in league.
