Hat-trick

A hat-trick or hat trick is the achievement of a positive feat three times in a game, or another achievement based on the number three.

Origin

The term first appeared in 1858 in cricket, to describe H. H. Stephenson's taking three wickets with three consecutive deliveries. Fans held a collection for Stephenson, and presented him with a hat bought with the proceeds.[1] The term was used in print for the first time in 1865.[2] The term was eventually adopted by many other sports including hockey, association football, water polo, and team handball.
