‘Bunny’ Shaw Scores Twice in Man-City’s 4-1 Lashing of Liverpool: Spectacular First Goal – Video

Manchester City triumphed over Liverpool on Saturday, March 30 with a 4-1 victory, propelling them to the pinnacle of the WSL standings. The match, a showcase of talent and strategy, was particularly illuminated by Khadija Shaw‘s exceptional performance, which included a remarkable 25-yard strike, contributing significantly to her lead in the WSL Golden Boot race.

Despite Liverpool’s initial pressure that limited City to 35% possession in the first 10 minutes, the tide turned when Lauren Hemp capitalized on a loose ball in the box, scoring the opening goal in the 16th minute. The momentum continued as Jess Park extended the lead with a precise shot from the edge of the penalty area, following an assist from Mary Fowler.

Manchester City’s dominance was further asserted by Shaw‘s stunning long-range goal, leaving Liverpool scrambling. Even though Liverpool’s manager, Matt Beard, introduced three new players after halftime in a bid to reverse the game’s trajectory, Shaw’s prowess was undeniable as she netted her second goal with a header.

Despite a late consolation goal for Liverpool, resulting from Taylor Hinds’ long-range effort that deflected off the crossbar and Khiara Keating, Manchester City emerged with a crucial three-point lead in the league. With only four matches remaining, City’s sights are firmly set on maintaining their top spot as they head into the international break.

After scoring the goals, Bunny Shaw took to Instagram to celebrate the accomplishment, she wrote, “Happy Easter from yours truly 🤭 🐰 . God is able 🙏🏾,” as the caption for a slide that has multiple pictures of her celebrations.
