No player in the nation is hotter than Dylan Teeves. The Seattle Sounders Academy graduate scored his hat-trick in a row Friday, leading the University of Washington men’s soccer team to a 3-2 overtime win over Indiana University for a punch-ticket to the Elite 8 in the NCAA Championship.

This is the third year in a row that UW has qualified for Elite 8, but they haven’t yet made it to the College Cup.

The match winner comes right on the heels of Teves’ first collective hat-trick against the University of Portland in a previous round. Tevez, who reached the final of the MAC Hermann Award, now has 12 goals and seven assists in 19 games in the 2021 season.

Although he played in 2018, Tevez is considered a junior for eligibility purposes due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Most observers expect Teves to turn pro, as he will likely be a first-round pick in the MLS SuperDraft. Sounders also have the ability to sign a contract with a local player. They tried to sign Teves to a USL contract in 2018, but the Hawaiian chose to go to college instead. They are now likely to offer him an MLS deal to avoid the draft.
