ANNANDALE -- Over the next two weeks, the Northern Virginia Community College athletic department will countdown the 10 best moments of the 2016-17 athletics season. The list is comprised of individual and team highlights from the field of play.
The NOVA athletic department has selected Joseph Germano’s program record tying seven goals as the No. 8 moment of the 2016-17 athletic year. Germano’s goal barrage tied Colin Fowler and Laron Hinton’s mark set in 2015.
Germano scored his first three goals of the day in a two-and-a-half-minute span in first quarter action and hit the back of the net later in the same period. He added a pair of tallies in the third stanza, dished an assist and scored his final goal of the afternoon with 5:35 left in the contest.
In his first year with the Nighthawks, Germano scored a team-high 19 goals, gave six assists and fired 38 shots on goal.
