Just days after scoring his first hat-trick, Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga was on Saturday, August 17, once again on target as he netted the winning goal in Kashiwa Reysol’s 2-1 win over V-Varen Nagasaki.

The Japanese J2 League clash saw Reysol take an early lead through Matheus Savio who fired the visitors ahead within eight minutes of game play.

The hosts however equalised after five minutes into second-half, with Hiroto Goya taking credit for the leveller after slotting home from the penalty spot.

But with just 15 minutes left to stoppage time, Olunga rose high to restore his side’s lead once again as they held on to claim maximum points away from home.

The victory effectively opened a seven-point gap for Reysol who are sitting at the top of the table with 58 points.

Meanwhile, Olunga’s strike took his tally to 12 goals, just five short of Lee Yong-Jae who is leading the top-scorers chart.

The Kenyan international will be out to narrow the gap when his side battle bottom-placed Gifu in their next clash.
