Lamah scored a hat trick in FC Dallas’s 6-2 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday at Toyota Stadium, with the club becoming the first team in MLS history to score five goals in the first half of play. With his first multi-goal effort in MLS, Lamah now has four goals and one assist this season, with all four scores occurring over the previous three matches. Dallas now sits tied for second in the Western Conference standings with 23 points (6-2-5 overall record).
Lamah completed his hat trick in the 31st minute to give Dallas a 3-0 advantage, receiving Carlos Gruezo’s pass and firing a left-footed shot from the top of the box. Van Oekel made a diving deflection but Lamah’s shot proved too powerful and found the back of the net (Watch Goal). Lamah’s feat equaled the second-fastest hat trick from the start of a game in MLS history.
FC Dallas next plays on Saturday, June 10 when traveling to face the Portland Timbers at Providence Park (10:30 p.m. ET, MLS LIVE).
