Senior captain Akwasi Adu, who earlier this fall broke the single-season scoring record for Atlantic City boys' soccer, added the school's career mark to his resume on Wednesday, the regular-season finale for the Vikings, by scoring three more goals.

Adu didn't even need the whole game against Highland to accomplish the feat. He scored a hat trick before intermission, giving him 42 goals in his varsity career and breaking a 21-year-old record held by Krste Tankowski. Adu's Atlantic City team went on to win, 4-3, after giving up three goals to Highland in the second half.

"He's a hard-working, deserving player," Vikings coach Maurice Lozzi said. "He's one of the best players I've ever coached."

The third goal was also his 31st this season, establishing the record for goals in a season at the school. Adu broke the previous record, 17 by Tankowski, earlier this season.

"He went from one goal as a sophomore, to 10 as a junior, and 31 as a senior," Lozzi said. "He's the best forward in South Jersey without a doubt."
