BRIGHTON, England — Pascal Gross scored Brighton’s first top-flight goals in 34 years in a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League on Saturday.

After collecting one point from three matches, Brighton recorded its first successes since gaining promotion to the Premier League and ended West Brom’s unbeaten start.

Gross, who joined in the offseason from German club Ingoldstat for three million pounds ($4 million), netted twice and laid on the third for Tomer Hemed.
