Zesco United star striker Jesse Jackson Were scored a hat-trick to send the defending Champions to the summit of the table following a 3-0 win over Nakambala Leopards in Mazabuka.
Jesse Were opened the scoring just 20 minutes into the match as he converted from the spot after Zimbabwean midfielder Thabani Kamusoko had been brought down in the box.
The Kenyan talisman added the second at the end of the first half as Zesco United went to the break with a comfortable two-nil lead. Were completed his hat-trick six minutes into the second half to condemn Nakambala to bottom of the table.
Jesse's hat-trick is the first recorded this season and takes him to the top of the top goalscorers chart tied with Nkana's Idris Ilunga Mbombo on three goals.
