Maltese starlet Haley Bugeja hit the woodwork twice as Sassuolo swept aside Hellas Verona 4-0 in the Serie A Femminile, on Saturday afternoon.
Bugeja, who has scored one goal in this season’s Serie A so far, was deployed from the start alongside Sofia Cantore and Lana Clelland in the attacking trio.
She was key in Sassuolo’s opening goal, assisting Clelland as the Scotland international broke the deadlock.
Sassuolo’s goals came through Clelland twice, Benedetta Orsi and Kamila Dubcova.
Bugeja was unlucky not to list herself on the scoresheet after hitting the woodwork twice in a span of few minutes in the second half.
For Bugeja, this was her 31st appearance for Sassuolo during which she scored 13 goals.
Following this win, Sassuolo move to 31 points and into second place, at least for 24 hours before Roma go into action on Sunday.
