Did You Know The Difference Between A Brace And A Hat Trick?

Photo Credit: GreatestHockeyLegends.comIf you are a hockey fan or saw Carli Lloyd’s amazing feat in the U.S. Women’s 2015 World Cup Final, you probably know that a hat trick is when a player scores three goals in a game. It’s a term that’s been in use since 1858 when cricket player H.H. Stephenson took three wickets in three consecutive balls and his grateful fans took up a collection and bought him a hat.

If you score two goals in a game, there’s a special word for that too. It’s called a brace, an expression that originates from the old French word meaning “two arms.”

The term hat trick applies to other sports such as hockey, lacrosse, and rugby.  In bowling, however, scoring three strikes in a row is referred to as a turkey because in the late 1800s and early 1900s bowling alley owners gave a turkey to anyone who could bowl three strikes in a row.
