Hibernian stunned Glasgow City with a second half fightback to win 3-2 in their top of the table clash and close the gap on their opponents to three points, with two games in hand, in the Scottish Women's Premier League.
Both teams went into the game with 100% records and it looked as though Glasgow were going to gain revenge for their Premier League Cup semi final defeat by Hibs last month as Donna Shaw headed them in front and Suzanne Lappin doubled their advantage, again with a header, going into half time.
City had dominated the first half and might have been further ahead but the turning point came midway through the second half as Joelle Murray's solo run towards goal culminated with her firing a 25-yard shot into the top corner of the net to bring Hibs back into the game. Suzanne Grant then levelled the scores from a Kim Little cross and the comeback was completed as Grant netted her second goal, from a Little corner.
Edinburgh Ladies remain in third place but are now five points adrift following their 1-1 draw with FC Kilmarnock. Toni Mason gave Killie a first half lead when she converted a Kirsty McLaughlin corner, with Edinburgh battling back after the break with an equaliser from Diana Barry.
Celtic continue their steady climb up the table, moving into fourth place after beating Raith Rovers 3-0, just ahead of Hamilton Academicals who narrowly defeated Vale of Clyde 2-1, Karen Penglase and Colette Fleming scoring their goals.
There were goals galore at Queen's Park where the home side warmed up for this week's Premier League Cup Final by picking up a useful point with a 4-4 draw against Aberdeen. Nicola Black (2), Jennifer Beattie and Cheryl McCulloch were on target for the Spiders whilst Nikki Wright scored a hat-trick for the Dons, with Sharon Scott also on target.
