Cory Burke marked the return of the Austrian Bundesliga with a hat trick in a 5-0 win for SKN St. Pölten over host WSG Swarovski Wattens in Innsbruck on Tuesday.

The forward on loan from the Philadelphia Union scored to make it 2-0 in the 10th minute and added goals in the 15th and 54th minutes to complete the hat trick. The 10th minute goal opened his scoring account for St. Pölten in his fourth match for the Austrian club after joining in February. He also added an assist and subbed out after 71 minutes.

The Jamaican international scored 11 goals in 18 appearances while on loan with Portmore United in Jamaica last fall. He last played for the Union and scored a goal on April 20, 2019 against Montreal. He was unable to return to the team for the remainder of the 2019 season after having his work visa revoked.

The 28-year-old is expected to return to the Philadelphia Union after the end of the season, which for St. Pölten is scheduled to conclude on July 4.
