Imperious Olunga boosts Kashiwa to third

Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga scored a solitary goal as Kashiwa Reysol edged Nagoya Grampus in a Japanese top-tier.

After scoring a hat trick in their last match, Olunga scored as his side won 1-0 against the opponents in match played at the Toyota Stadium today.

After a goalless first half, Olunga showed his predatory instincts as he pounced on a precise through pass from Ataru Esaka to beat the onrushing Nagoya custodian James Lengarak in the 71st minute.

The former Gor Mahia and Tusker FC striker is currently the leading scorer in the J1 league with nine goals from eight matches.

The win pushes Kashiwa Reysol from eighth to third on the log with 15 points while Nagoya drop from third to fifth with 14 points.
