The former Enugu Rangers man scored his three goals in 88 minutes to repay the faith his manager, Stanley Eguma, has shown in him over the years.
He was a handful for Lobi with his positional play though at some point in the match, some fans wanted him out when the goals did not come.
Egwim is showing that he can be the man Dolphins can rely on for goals as three goals took his tally to six this season in the league.
Joining Egwim in my team of the week are two of his Dolphins colleagues, Chidiebere Okolie and Tijani Adamu.
Okolie showed good composure in defence and played his role in ensuring Dolphins only conceded a late goal which proved elementary.
On the other hand, Adamu produced a quality performance in midfield and capped it with two assists that helped Egwim get a hat-trick.
Danladi Isah of Sharks is my goalkeeper of the week for his heroics at FC Taraba. He was only beaten by a late goal scored from the spot.
Oke Ogagatewho, Aniyikaye Adeleye, Chinedu Efugh, Yaro Bature, Ikechukwu Ibenegbu, Gambo Mohammed and Suleiman Abdullahi are the other players who complete my team of the week.
