Clint Mathis scored an MLS record five goals in a game in 2000

The first hat-trick, a player scoring three goals in a game, in Major League Soccer, was scored by Steve Rammel of D.C. United in their 5–2 win at the Columbus Crew on May 15, 1996.[1]

The league's fastest hat-trick was scored in under five minutes by Harut Karapetyan of the LA Galaxy on June 4, 1998, in an 8–1 win at the Dallas Burn.[2] Clint Mathis scored the most goals in a game, five, on August 26, 2000 in a 6–4 MetroStars win over the Burn.[3]

Roy Lassiter scored hat-tricks for the Tampa Bay Mutiny[1] and D.C. United.[4] Dante Washington scored hat-tricks for the Burn[5] and the Crew.[6] Mamadou Diallo scored three hat-tricks for the Mutiny[7][8][9] and another for the MetroStars,[10] twice scoring four goals in a game.

Eight rookie players have scored hat-tricks, the first being Brian Maisonneuve on September 7, 1996 for the Crew in a 5–1 home win over the Kansas City Wiz, and the most recent being Cyle Larin for Orlando City SC against New York City FC in 2015.[11]
