If there's one name you need to remember in Australian women's soccer right now -- it's Samantha Kerr.
Kerr, often known as Sam, plays as a striker for Australian W-League side Perth Glory and also for the national Matildas team, but it was for the third side she also plays with -- New Jersey's Sky Blue FC in the U.S. National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) -- that she really shone over the weekend.
She scored a hat-trick against FC Kansas City in just 12 minutes on Saturday to seal a 3-2 win and to become the NWSL's all-time leading goal scorer. And if that isn't impressive enough for you, just wait until you check out the goals.
The performance comes on the back of a huge season for Kerr in the W-League, where she took the Glory to the 2016/17 Grand Final and was also awarded the Julie Dolan Medal after being voted the league's best player.
While playing soccer in a national league for most female players comes as part of a juggling-act among other jobs, the changes in seasons and hemispheres means Kerr is a full-time player who manages to perform in the W-League in the months where she's not playing for Sky Blue FC. And boy does it show.
To celebrate her run-of-form and newly-broken NWSL record, the Matildas also decided to dive "into the files to unearth some lesser known #SamKerrFacts" on Monday, and as it turns out -- she might even give Chuck Norris a run for the things she's capable of (apparently).
