Rising above expectations and doing something remarkable gets you noticed. In Bremerton Wenatchee FC creative attacker Eleazar Galvan ran through the Olympic Force defense and scored a hat trick after just 22 minutes of play in a 4-1 Capitals win. His performance was acknowledged with the May 10 Player of the Week honor on offense.
Eleazar Galvan (midfield / forward) was the leading scorer for Wenatchee FC in 2014 with 7 goals. He’s nearly half way to that total right now after a 22-minute stretch in which he scored a hat trick on Mothers Day against the Olympic Force in Bremerton. “My first season in the EPLWA was a great one. I was able to play with people who I grew up with that I consider my brothers. I don’t think I had a favorite moment with this team because every moment was an important one,” Galvan said in a feature article during the offseason. “Playing for Wenatchee FC has definitely helped me become a better player. It has helped me become more physical. Also it has helped me see the game from different perspectives as the coach taught us. Practicing and playing vs. good players has also helped me become a better soccer player.”
Galvan’s hat trick was built on speed in the 3rd, 10th and 22nd minutes. He worked his way around Olympic Force defenders and was able to beat the goalkeeper from the left (once) and right (twice.) To cap off his day he assisted on Wenatchee FC’s stoppage time goal in the second half to cement a 4-1 away win.
The Chelan High School graduate, who played two stong seasons in the NWAC with Skagit Valley, will play for Western Washington University this fall.
