Francisca Ordega was on target in Shanghai's 3-1 win against Guangdong in a Chinese Women's Super League contest on Sunday.
Last week at the Jiading Stadium, Shanghai saw their title hopes dashed after a 1-1 draw against Henan Huishang.
Having failed to celebrate a win in three consecutive games, they were seeking to bounce back to winning ways against their hosts at the Wutaishan County Stadium.
The Nigeria international scored her sixth goal of the season after goals from Zhao Yingying and Zhang Xin ensured they outscored Guangdong despite Li Ying's effort.

The victory means Shanghai have accrued 26 points from 12 games to remain in the second position - 11 points behind leaders Jiangsu Suning.
Ordega will be hoping for a winning end when Shanghai welcome Wuhan to the Jiading Stadium for their final game of the season next Sunday.
