The first-year player netted his first MLS career hat trick and picked up an assist to pace the Fire to their first victory of the season, a wild a 5-4 tilt with the New York Red Bulls.
Shipp opened the scoring in the fourth minute when he whistled a right-footed shot from outside the box past Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles.
With the game tied 2-2 in the 53rd minute, Fire midfielder Patrick Nyarko won the ball at the top of the box, then found Shipp who took a couple of touches before placing the ball inside the far post for the go-ahead goal.
Just five minutes later, Shipp completed his hat trick when he out-battled Red Bulls defender Kosuke Kimura, dribbled into the box and eased in his hat-trick tally.
During the 64th minute, the rookie assisted on Nyarko’s spectacular game-clinching goal to give the Fire their first win of the season.
