Glasgow City maintained their lead of five points at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League with a 2-0 win away to third placed Rangers on the day the league resumed following its summer break.
Denise O'Sullivan, who joined the club during the interval, scored within five minutes on her debut and Eilish McSorley wrapped up the win with the second goal just before the hour mark.
Hibernian kept up the chase in second place by beating Aberdeen 6-1. Lizzie Arnott was on target twice for Hibs along with Susan Fairlie, Rachel Walkingshaw, Joelle Murray and Lucy Graham, who joined the club recently from Forfar Farmington. Nicky Wright netted Aberdeen's consolation.
The league split into two sections - top six and bottom six - when the league went into its break at the halfway stage and the other match in the top section saw Celtic defeat Spartans 3-0 with goals from Chloe Arthur, Julie Fleeting and Maddie Fulton.
In the bottom section, Forfar Farmington got off to a good start with a 4-1 victory over Hutchison Vale. Cheryl Rigden gave Forfar an early lead which was doubled by Danni McGinley and then 16-year-old Kayleigh Noble, who was making her debut as a first half substitute, scored within minutes of coming on. Gemma Collier rounded off a good result for Farmington after the break before Laura Gavin grabbed a late consolation for Hutchie.
Hamilton Academicals meanwhile ran out 6-1 winners over Buchan Ladies with a starting eleven averaging just 18.9 years. Cheryl McCulloch and Clare Gemmell each netted doubles for the Accies whose other goals came from Kirstin McGuire and Ainsley Douglas, while Sophie Anderson replied for Buchan.
Kilwinning SC lifted themselves out of the bottom two places via a 2-1 success away to Falkirk. Goals either side of half time from Megan McInnes and Anderson secured three vital points for Kilwinning, with Jennifer Godfrey responding for the home side late on.
