Haley Bugeja has capped off her spectacular debut season in Serie A Femminile with a brace against Empoli which propelled her to finish as Sassuolo’s top scorer with 12 goals.
Bugeja, who started for Sassuolo in their last game of the season against Empoli, made an assist for their opening goal scored by Martina Tomaselli before Martina Filangeri doubled their lead.
Juventus loanee Benedetta Glionna pulled one back for Empoli but Bugeja’s brace dented any Empoli’s hopes of a comeback to help Sassuolo restore their two-goal lead.
Sassuolo went on to win 6-1 with their fifth and sixth goals scored by Claudia Ferrato and Martina Cambiaghi respectively.
Bugeja’s first goal came on the 48th minute when she darted herself into the box before lobbing past the oncoming goalkeeper.
Her second goal was identical to her second scored on her fantastic debut against Napoli in September, when she struck a curling effort from the edge of the box into the far corner.
