Her stellar performance marks her second hat-trick since joining the Saudi Arabian side, Footballrover reports.

The Super Falcons defender amazed spectators by netting a remarkable goal from approximately 40 yards out, adding to her team’s dominant display against Al Ahli SC Ladies during Matchday 6 of the Saudi Arabia Women’s League.

The 25-year-old Nigerian international made an impact early in the game, scoring her first goal within 29 minutes.

She capitalised on a loose ball inside the 18-yard box to fire her effort beyond the goalkeeper’s reach.

Her second goal, a thunderous left-footed strike, came 16 minutes later, showcasing her versatile skillset.

Before halftime, she effortlessly completed her hat-trick with a simple tap-in from a free-kick opportunity.

Recall that her debut for the team against the Eastern Flames saw her achieve her first hat-trick.

Plumptre’s remarkable ability to score goals, even utilising her weaker right foot for the second goal, speaks volumes about her talent and adaptability on the field.

Her impact as a goal-scoring defender for her new club is extraordinary, tallying an impressive six goals in six matches.

With her outstanding play, Plumptre has already established herself as one of the league’s best defenders, surpassing even the most high expectations for a defender.

A blessing to experience every moment with this team. Enjoyed my first Derby game with this group and grateful for the hattrick in front of our incredible fans.” she wrote on her social media page.
