Olunga becomes first Kenyan to score hat-trick in Spain - Nairobi News

Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga made history on Saturday by bagging a hat-trick for his Girona side in their 6-0 drubbing of Las Palmas. The goals were Olunga’s first in his Spanish La Liga account. He scored three goals in a span of 22 minutes to lift Girona to ninth place on the league table. He becomes the first Kenyan to claim a hat-trick in the La Liga. The first goal came in the 57th minute, before he doubled his effort in the 70th minute and completing his hat-trick nine minutes later. His third goal was as a simple as it came. He rightly positioned himself in the box and poked home the rebound albeit from a high angle to lay his marker. A 24th-minute penalty by Stuani set the tone for the huge victory before the unplayable Olunga sliced through the Las Plamaas defence like a knife on butter, with swiftly taken treble, while Borja Gracia also found the mark with a 63rd-minute strike. Olunga’s striking partner Borja Garcia and Portu contributed a goal each in the 64th and 74th minutes respectively. Girona have now moved joint nineth with Gatefe on 26 points, though the latter have a superior goal advantage. Leaders Barcelona are top of the table with 48 points, nine points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid while defending champions, Real Madrid are fourth behind Sevilla on 32 points. The three goals took Olunga’s total tally for Girona to five having scored a brace on his debut in a friendly against Ripoll last September.
