Glasgow City made sure of heading off for their UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying group in winning form as they defeated Forfar Farmington 4-0 on the resumption of the Scottish Women's Premier League.
Danica Dalziel fired City ahead shortly before half time and further goals after the break from Emma Mitchell, Julie Melrose and Emma Fernon sealed the win. The result ensures that City maintain their lead of six points at the top of the table and condemned Forfar to only their third defeat of the season.
Hibernian regained second place in some style, scoring eight without reply away to Aberdeen. Kirsty Montignani, Caroline Weir and Christie Kerr all netted two goals apiece and they were joined on the scoresheet by Kirsty McLaughlin and Hollie Thomson.
Celtic had started the day in second but they received a setback to their hopes they went down to a 1-0 defeat at home to Spartans. An early goal from Sarah Ewens made sure that the Edinburgh side kept up their improved form just ahead of the mid-season break and they are now in fifth.
For the first time, the SWPL has been split into two halves with the clubs being separated into a top and bottom six for their remaining fixtures.

Hutchison Vale meanwhile enjoyed their best result of the season as they scored six without reply past Inverness City. Laura Gavin bagged a hat-trick for Hutchie and also on target were Nicola Russell, Tracy Donachie and Jennifer Malone.
