    Thank you Coach.I agree.
    I could not find a listing for a double hat trick. Only hat trick.
    Hat-trick
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    A hat-trick or hat trick in sport is the achievement of a positive feat three times during competition.[1] In association football or ice hockey and other competition, it happens when a player scores three goals but does not have to be consecutively, and in cricket, when a bowler takes three wickets with consecutive deliveries.

    The term was first used in 1858 in cricket to describe HH Stephenson's feat[2] and was used in print for the first time in 1878.[3]

    The term became popular in North American sport in the mid 1940s in NHL hockey. In Toronto, Canada, a local businessman named Sammy Taft offered a free hat to the player who could score three goals in a single game. When Alex Kaleta played against the Toronto Maple Leafs one night, Kaleta scored the first 'hat trick', winning a hat as promised by Taft. From then on, three goals in a hockey game became referred to as a hat trick. NHL hockey tradition sees fans throw their hats on the ice after the third goal by any player (but customarily only when the feat is accomplished by a player on the home team).

    The term has expanded to many other sports including association football (three goals), baseball (three strikeouts or hits), and even rugby.[citation needed]
