Glasgow complete the treble
 Women's Football News 29 May 2009
 
Glasgow complete the treble - 29 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City defeated a resilient Hibernian side 2-0 on Thursday night in Broxburn to lift the Scottish Women's Premier League Championship.
 
The result topped off an outstanding season for Scotland's number one side. Having already lifted the Unite Scottish Cup and the Premier League Cup, City have now won the domestic treble. This combined with also becoming the first Scottish side ever to reach the last sixteen of the UEFA Women's Cup this season, City now go down in history as Scotland's most successful women's side.
 
The match against fourth placed Hibernian was always going to be a nervous affair, with City just needing a point to claim the title and they lacked their usual composure and flair in the first half. As a result neither side really dominated, with City's best chance coming from Ruesha Littlejohn, but her near post shot was pushed against the woodwork and away to safety by Hibs and Scotland number one Gemma Fay.
 
The second period was a whole different game, which City controlled comfortably, putting continued pressure on the Hibernian defence. The away side made the breakthrough on the hour, when Littlejohn fired home from close range after putting pressure on Fay in goal.
 
Clare Gemmell nearly put City two up, but her left foot strike at the edge of the box came back off the bar. Leanne Ross then tried her luck from distance with a 30-yard drive, but the effort also cannoned off the bar.
 
With ten minutes remaining, City got their reward and went 2-0 up to guarantee the three points and the Premier League title. An Emma Fernon corner was headed goal bound by Sue Lappin. Fay saved well in the Hibernian net, but Lappin was on hand to knock the rebound into the back of the net.
 
Glasgow manager Peter Caulfield expressed how proud he was of his team: "The players have been outstanding. This was a real pressure match as trebles are not meant to be easy, but the girls really deserved it. They have done what no other team before them has ever managed. They have worked so hard and should enjoy their moment."
