DURANGO, Colo. — No. 3 Fort Lewis scored three times in a 56-second span to establish a new NCAA Division II record for fastest three consecutive goals by one team in a 6-1 victory against Adams State on Friday.
With traffic in front of Adams State goalkeeper Michael Miller, Joey Madigan’s corner kick curled safely into the net just 4:36 into the game to start the onslaught.
Thirty-four seconds later, Derek Freeman headed a perfectly-placed crossing pass from the right side that Alberto Capdepon-Rodriguez served up to stretch the lead to 2-0.
Twenty-two ticks ran off the clock before Madigan blasted a shot from the left side past Miller to make the score 3-0.
With three goals in 56 seconds, FLC shattered the nine-year-old Division II standard for the fastest three consecutive goals by one team. California State-Bakersfield previously set the mark with three scores in 1:16 against California State-Dominguez Hills in 2002.
