Off a corner kick, Sargent won an aerial battle near the penalty spot and drove his header down inside the 6-yard box, where Fullkrug snapped a first-time effort past Ralf Fahrmann. Fullkrug would go on to score a hat trick in a 3-1 Bremen victory.
Sargent has started all three of Bremen's matches across all competitions in the new season. He scored for Bremen in their 2-0 Cup win over Carl Zeiss Jena back on Sept. 12.
