It has been a good week for Glasgow City as they recorded two victories which have taken them six points clear at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League table.
In midweek they ran out 4-1 winners over Celtic before an emphatic 13-2 success away to Queen's Park, which was spearheaded by a five-goal haul from Leanne Ross. Katharina Lindner, Suzanne Lappin and Megan Sneddon all weighed in with doubles and the tally was completed by Jane Ross and Emma Fernon.
Edinburgh Ladies got back to winning ways with a 7-2 victory at Hamilton Academicals, a result which lifts them up into third place.
The two remaining First Round ties in the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup were completed on Sunday and Celtic are through to the quarter finals but only just, following a thrilling 3-2 extra time victory over Forfar Farmington. Forfar led for most of the game through a Nicola Davidson free kick but Celtic sent the match into extra time with a second half headed equaliser from Danica Dalziel. Lauren Emmerson put Celtic ahead for the first time, two minutes into the extra period, but Forfar were soon level again via a superb 40-yard shot by Gemma Collier. Ten minutes from time, a neat finish from Laura Cheshire settled matters in Celtic's favour. Celtic now face a plum home tie against Glasgow City in the last eight.
There was no less excitement in the other tie with Aberdeen edging out FC Kilmarnock by the odd goal in seven. Julia Scott and Nikki Wright gave the Dons a two goal lead with Laura Ferguson pulling one back from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time. Rachel Hamill and Wright, with her second, further extended Aberdeen's advantage, McCombie gave Killie late hope but the Dons held on for a home quarter final tie against Hamilton Academicals.
