Glasgow City made it ten wins from ten games in the Scottish Women's Premier League with a huge victory over Buchan Ladies.
The reigning Champions scored thirteen times in total, spearheaded by a four-goal haul from Cheryl McCulloch and a Suzanne Lappin hat-trick. Susan Fairlie contributed a brace and the tally was completed by Denise O'Sullivan, Abbi Grant, Leanne Ross and Leanne Crichton.
Rangers keep up the chase in second place after winning 6-2 away to Inverness City. However they needed to recover from an early setback which saw them find themselves two goals behind inside the opening five minutes, Sarah Main and Lisa McKenzie scoring, before Sophie Riley and Lisa Swanson got them back on level terms by half time. After the break, Rangers took control and sewed up the points with further strikes from Erin Cuthbert, Hayley Cunningham, Amanda Traynor and Riley who netted her second.
Hibernian are a further point behind following their victory by the odd goal in seven against Hamilton Academical. Hibs led by two goals at half time thanks to a Lucy Graham double before Gillian Sloey pulled one back for the Accies. Rachel Walkingshaw and Lizzie Arnot also got on the scoresheet before Hibs needed to withstand a late fightback from Hamilton in which they scored through Gillian Inglis and Carolina Richardson.
Spartans continued their winning run, stretching it to six matches with a narrow 2-1 success against Queen's Park. Kerry Montgomery opened the scoring for Debbi McCulloch's side and although Valentina Mazzoni grabbed an equaliser for the Spiders, Trish McLaughlin struck early in the second half to keep Spartans in fourth place in the table.
Suzanne Grant kept up her good form since her return for Celtic by netting four times in their 7-1 victory away to Forfar Farmington. Mhairi Gilmour-McGuire weighed in with a brace and Abigail Harrison completed the scoring for Celtic after Amy Gallacher had given Forfar an early lead.
Aberdeen secured their place in the top six ahead of the mid-season split by running out 8-1 winners over Hutchison Vale. Susan Murray gave them an early lead and an own goal ensured that the Dons led at the break before Rebecca Dempster hit a second half hat-trick with Chloe Fitzpatrick, Ellie McDonald and Christy Grimshaw joined them on the scoresheet.
