Reggae Girl Shaw nets hat-trick in Man City win over Everton
Reggae Girl Khadija Shaw now leads the Women’s Super League with nine goals after netting a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 4-1 victory over Everton at Walton Hall Park on Sunday, according to BBC.
Shaw had an eighth-minute spot-kick saved by Courtney Brosnan after Lauren Hemp was fouled by Sara Holmgaard.
But the 26-year-old Jamaica international made amends just 55 seconds later when she caught Brosnan out with a superbly executed lob from the edge of the box.
Shaw doubled City’s advantage when she drilled a low shot past Brosnan midway through the first half and Jill Roord slotted in a third from Chloe Kelly’s cut-back to put City in complete control after just 25 minutes.
Aurora Galli’s stunning first-time strike from distance reduced the deficit and rewarded a much-improved second-half display by Everton.
But Shaw ended any hopes of a fightback when she headed in Alex Greenwood’s free-kick to complete her treble after 65 minutes.
