Rammel Scores 3 In D.c. Victory

Posted: May 16, 1996

WASHINGTON — Former West Deptford High School star Steve Rammel scored three goals as D.C. United beat the Columbus Crew, 5-2, in a Major League Soccer game last night.

Rammel's three goals were the first hat trick in the brief history of MLS, which now has played 31 games since its inaugural season began on April 6. His third goal, which was his fifth of the season, briefly tied him with Brian McBride of Columbus as the league's top goal-scorer, but McBride got his sixth goal of the season 19 minutes later.

Rammel, who graduated from West Deptford in 1986 and later starred at Rutgers, gave D.C. United a 1-0 halftime lead with a goal in the 28th minute. He then scored in the 48th and 57th minutes to break the game open for United.
