Zambia Women’s National Team striker, Barbra Banda, is in fine form this season as she scored a hat-trick to guide Shanghai Shengli to a 4-2 win over Yongchuan Chashan. This was her third straight match scoring for the team, having scored in their previous two matches. Banda drew level for Shengli in the 17th minute before netting again in the 52nd minute to make it 2-2. She then completed her hat-trick in the 77th minute to seal a well-deserved win for her team.
Banda had previously scored her second goal of the season in Shanghai RCB’s 4-1 win over Changchun Dazhong Zhiye in week 2. She had also opened her account for the 2023 China Taiping Women’s Super League with a late winner against Shaanxi Chang AN Athletic FC on March 4. Banda has now scored five goals in three games this season, helping her team to three straight wins and tying with Wuhan Jiangda on 9 points at the top of the league.
