The Jamaican striker enjoyed a day to remember, bagging a brace inside 12 minutes and two quickfire goals either side of the hour mark, to inspire Gareth Taylor's side to a crucial victory on a thoroughly entertaining afternoon at the Academy Stadium.
Caroline Weir was also on the scoresheet in a blistering start to the game, handing the hosts a commanding 3-0 lead after just 16 minutes, but the Seagulls produced a spirited fightback with an Inessa Kaagman penalty and Julia Zigiotti effort before the break.
Shaw's second half double, an Alex Greenwood header and Lauren Hemp strike sealed the points in style, extending our sensational winning run to 19 in our last 21 games in all competitions, lifting City above Manchester United in the table with just two games left to play in the race for a Champions League spot.
There was further cause for celebration on an entertaining afternoon at the Academy Stadium, as Lauren Hemp marked her 100th City game with a win.
