BETHNAL Green United bounced back from their opening day defeat in style as Daniel Sabaroche hit a hat-trick in a stunning win over Hayes Gate in the Middlesex County League on Saturday.

Sabaroche netted twice in the first half and completed his treble five minutes from time while Kadir Jama and Alfred Kamara also got on the scoresheet as United ran riot at Hayes Gate's Springfield Road ground.

Even a late consolation effort from the home side could not stop United from ending the afternoon with a positive goal difference as they laid to rest the ghosts of last week's shambolic 5-2 defeat by Bedfont Sports.

"We didn't dwell too much on last week and I just told the players to go out and enjoy themselves," said United manager Justin Gardner.

"It was a fantastic result and a great way to respond. Now it's important to keep our feet on the ground and keep up that level of performance."

United raced out of the blocks as Sabaroche scored twice in the opening 15 minutes.

Shane Joseph, who was later named man of the match for a dominant display up front, set up the opener in the 10th minute, winning the ball inside the Hayes half and slipping a pass into the path of Sabaroche, who curled a low shot into the bottom corner.

Five minutes later, the two strikers combined again as Sabaroche ran clear and smashed home a fierce near-post shot.

United failed to extend their lead before half-time, but with Jake Davey bossing the midfield, the Bethnal Green side went further ahead within 15 minutes of the restart.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the area, Jama danced through two defenders before rounding the hapless Hayes goalkeeper and slotting home.

With Hayes forced to push forward, United remained dangerous on the counter and Kamara chalked up a fourth before Sabaroche hit his third in the 86th minute by heading in Nathan Mulgrave's deep cross.

Stand-in keeper Ragan Bailey was finally beaten in stoppage time but the late lapse in concentration proved irrelevant as United reignited their season ahead of Saturday's crunch clash with champions Gymkhana at Mile End Stadium (3pm).
