Michael Olunga on a brace as Kashiwa Reysol thump Tokyo Verdy

Kenyan international Michael Olunga registered his 16th goal of the season after bagging a brace in the 3-0 thrashing of Tokyo Verdy in a Japanese J2 League clash on Saturday 28th September. 

Olunga opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark to break his four-game barren run without a goal which was the longest since May this year. It took the lanky striker just eight minutes to seal his brace and become the club's highest top scorer in the league this season. 

Cristiano who has been in fine form assured the points for Reysol in the 79th minute to bag his 12th goal of the season. The win fastens Reysol's grip at the summit of the table as they now possess an eight-point advantage over second-placed Montedio Yamagata.

Reysol next take on Yokohama on Sunday 6th October as they aim to return to the J1 League at the first time of asking following their relegation last season.
