Hibernian remain as the early leaders of the Scottish Women's Premier League following a hard fought 1-0 win away to Aberdeen.
Caroline Heron kept up her good start to the season by heading in the only goal of the game to ensure that Hibs head the table on goal difference going into the international break.
Joining Hibs on maximum points after the opening three games are Champions Glasgow City, who claimed a fine 3-1 victory away to Spartans. Both teams went into the game sporting unbeaten records but three first half goals from City, scored by Leanne Crichton, Leanne Ross and Julie Nelson, gave them the points despite Sarah Ewens pulling one back for Spartans from the penalty spot.
The first Old Firm clash of the season went the way of Rangers who defeated Celtic 2-1 to climb above them into third place. Celtic did go in front when Rhonda Jones headed in from a corner on nine minutes but the Gers were level ahead of the break, Megan Sneddon scoring from the penalty spot. Suzanne Mulvey hit the bar early in the second half but she was to open her account for the club shortly afterwards with the winning goal to keep up Rangers' unbeaten start.
The two newly promoted teams met each other and it was Inverness City who ran out 3-0 winners over Queen's Park to give themselves a tally of six points from three games. Natalie Bodium fired Inverness in front before a goal in each half from Rachel McLauchlan wrapped up the points.
Hamilton Academicals registered their first points of the season with a 7-1 success away to Forfar Farmington. Katey Turner led the scoring for the Accies with a hat-trick and also on target with a goal apiece were Gillian Sloey, Lynsey Hogg, Clare Gemmell and Carolina Richardson.
Also off the mark for the new campaign were Hutchison Vale who defeated Buchan Ladies 2-1. Both of Hutchie's goals came in the first half, scored by Becky Galbraith and Laura Gavin, with Leanne Reid pulling a goal back for Buchan after the break.
