What's it called when you score 4 goals in a soccer game?
One person scoring 4 goals in a soccer match is referred to as a “double brace.” Some may also refer to it as a “Texas hat trick.” A regular hat trick is when 3 goals are scored by a single person in a match. It is considered a perfect hat trick if the 3 goals were scored with the left foot, right foot and a header. The term hat trick originated from cricket, and can also be used for hockey, lacrosse, rugby, darts, poker, marbles, scrabble and motor racing.
