Glasgow City were presented with the Scottish Women's Premier League trophy following their 12-0 victory over Aberdeen on Sunday, which included eleven second half goals.
Ironically it was Emma Fernon, the only member of the squad to have featured in all of their seven Championship winning sides, who opened the scoring with the only goal of the first half. After the break, Leanne Ross - who stood in as captain in place of the injured Rachel Corsie - led the scoring with four goals, Jane Ross weighed in with a brace and there was one apiece from Eilish McSorley, Julie Melrose, Joanne Love, Danica Dalziel and Emma Mitchell.
The race for the runners-up spot will go to the last day of the season with three teams still in contention. These are now headed by Celtic who replaced Forfar Farmington in second place by beating them 3-2. Hayley Cunningham netted twice and Suzanne Grant the other for Celtic with Forfar replying through Aimee Godfrey and an own goal.
Hibernian kept their hopes alive with a 3-1 win over Spartans. Siobhan Hunter, Sammy Hare and Caroline Weir scored the goals to earn Hibs a derby victory with Spartans' consolation coming from Sarah Ewens.
Celtic therefore lead Hibernian on goal difference and the two sides clash in their final game with the winners guaranteed to finish as runners-up. Forfar Farmington are a point behind in fourth and a draw would let them in, provided they can finish with a win at Aberdeen.
In the bottom section, Hamilton Academicals are the favourites to be the highest placed team following their 8-1 win away to Inverness City, who are now condemned to finish in the bottom two. Helen Templeton netted four times for the Accies, Karen MacInally added a brace and the tally was completed by Cara McBrearty and Ainsley Douglas. Hamilton take on FC Kilmarnock on Tuesday night and a win would virtually confirm them in the top position.
Hutchison Vale also continue to end the campaign well and they ran out 5-1 winners over Falkirk. Jennifer Rogers, Jennifer Malone, Tracy Donachie, Nicola Russell and Laura Gavin were all on the scoresheet for Hutchie with Shelby McLeod responding.
Rangers will finish in third place in the bottom section after they notched up their biggest victory of the season, scoring ten without reply against FC Kilmarnock.
