Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga scored a hattrick as Kashiwa Reysol beat Vegalta Sendai 5-1 in a Japan league match staged at the Sankyo Frontier stadium on Sunday.

Kashiwa scored first through Hayato Nakama before Olunga took the stage with a treble. He netted his first on the 40th minute, before two in the second period; on the 58th and 73rd minutes.

Takuma Nishimura scored the visitors's consolation, later on, and Yusuke Segawa wrapped up the match with a fifth for the hosts with four minutes to go.
