In a groundbreaking feat, Khadija Bunny Shaw, 26, has etched her name in the history books of women’s soccer as she becomes the first player in the Barclays Women’s Soccer League to score three hat-tricks in a calendar year.
This remarkable achievement solidifies her status as one of the most dominant and talented female footballers in the sport.
Shaw’s journey to this accomplishment has been nothing short of exceptional. Hailing from Jamaica, she burst onto the soccer scene with her innate skill, agility, and eye for goal. Her rise to prominence began when she joined a local club team and quickly made her mark with her goal-scoring prowess.
Scouts soon took notice of her talent, and Shaw was offered her first contract abroad, which ultimately led her to the Barclays Women’s Soccer League.
Fresh off her 31-goals record-breaking form for Manchester City last campaign, Shaw has seemingly picked up where she left off, as she has already racked up nine goals in nine matches. Her ability to find the back of the net seemed effortless since joining the English-based club, and her versatility on the field made her a force to be reckoned with.
Her record-breaking hat tricks came against Everton, in what is described as a perfect hat trick, as she scored a volley off her left foot, a low drive with her right foot and a diving header.
Her other hat tricks were against Tottenham back in March and in this current campaign against the same opposition in a classy first-half display from the Reggae Girlz captain.
