On This Date - Oct. 6, 2012 - Wondo tallies second hat-trick of the season

It's safe to say that 2012 was a good year for Chris Wondolowski.

He compiled a single-season-record-tying 27 goals, helped lift the club's second Supporters' Shield trophy and had six multi-goal games, including a hat-trick against Western Conference foe Colorado Rapids on Oct. 6, 2012. 

That night in Commerce City, the Danville native recorded goals number 23, 24 and 25 as he continued his chase of Roy Lassiter's record.

As you can see in the three GIFs below, his usual cool, calm and collective demeanor in front of goal was on full display:
