HAT TRICK: Ola Kamara breaks through for Columbus Crew SC

Ola Kamara opened his MLS account in dramatic fashion, scoring three goals in Columbus Crew SC's 4-3 victory against Real Salt Lake at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The last player to net a hat trick for his first MLS goals was Montreal Impact star Didier Drogba, who did so September 5 2015 against the Chicago Fire.

Kamara joined Bradley Wright-Phillips of the New York Red Bulls in scoring thrice Saturday, the first time two MLS players had done so on the same day since Harry Shipp (then of the Fire) matched BWP on May 10, 2014.
