Ebere Orji scored a hat-trick to help Umea to an amazing 4-0 win over Borgeby in Monday's Elitettan encounter in Bjarred, Sweden.

The Nigerian forward has been in scintillating form since rejoining Robert Bergstrom's side from rivals Mallbacken in January.

Prior to the encounter, she had made a goalscoring debut in her side's 2-0 win at home over Uppsala.

Orji opened the scoring for the visitors in the 29th minute before doubling the lead nine minutes later. Anina Wede added the third on the brink of half time.

After the restart, the 26-year-old wrapped up her impressive goalscoring outing, grabbing her hat-trick in the 58th minute.

The Nigeria international, who was replaced by Lova Lundin in the 67th minute, has now scored four goals in two games for Bergstrom's ladies.

The win sends Umea to the summit of the log with six points from two matches and they will face Mallbacken in their next tie on Saturday.
