Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach en­dured a night to for­get in the Bun­desliga yes­ter­day, slump­ing to a 3-0 de­feat as Salomon Kalou scored a hat-trick for Hertha Ber­lin.

Glad­bach for­ward Pa­trick Her­rmann suf­fered what looked like an­other se­ri­ous in­jury be­tween Kalou’s firsthalf goals for the home side, and there was still time be­fore the break for mid­fielder Christoph Kramer to be sent off for his sec­ond yel­low card.

Kalou’s first goals of the sea­son fired Hertha to third be­fore the rest of the 10th round, three points be­hind lead­ers Bayern Mu­nich, while ‘Glad­bach re­mained in the bot­tom half of the ta­ble af­ter its fifth straight league game with­out a win.

Kalou opened the scor­ing, send­ing the ball in­side the far post with a div­ing header to Mitchell Weiser’s per­fectly lofted cross.
