Glasgow City moved seven points clear at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League after defeating Spartans 4-2.
Abbi Grant, Julie Nelson, Eilish McSorley and Leanne Ross were all on target for City whilst Sarah Ewens responded twice for the home side, but it was not enough and maximum points went to the reigning Champions who continue their 100% run in all competitions so far.
City took the lead through Abbi Grant. Fiona Brown cut inside and hit a curling shot towards the far post. Rachel Harrison in the Spartans net did well to save, but could only parry to Abbi Grant who finished from close range. On the half hour mark, City made it 2-0 when Suzanne Lappin crossed for Julie Nelson to head home and minutes later, central defensive partner Eilish McSorley got the third firing low past Harrison inside a crowded penalty box after a Leanne Ross shot had come back off the cross bar.
Shortly before half time, a poor clearance at the back for City, presented Sarah Ewens with an opportunity in the box and she took full advantage firing past Lee Alexander in the City nets to get her side back in the game.
Captain Leanne Ross scored with a free kick from outside the area to put the away side 4-1 up, but Sarah Ewens reduced the deficit once more scoring from a dead ball situation herself.
Second placed Rangers and Hibernian meanwhile battled out a 2-2 draw. Lisa Swanson gave Rangers an early lead which was cancelled out by Lizzie Arnot, who went on to put Hibs in front after the break. Kathryn Hill celebrated her call up to the Scotland senior squad by earning her side a share of the spoils with the equaliser.
Honours were also even as Celtic and Aberdeen finished level at 1-1 in the other game in the top section. Dons captain Rachael Small opened the scoring for her side in the second half with Celtic equalising shortly afterwards through Abigail Harrison.
Hamilton Academical lead the way in the bottom section following their 2-1 victory away to Forfar Farmington, Carolina Richardson scoring both of their goals.
Hutchison Vale also made sure of resuming their campaign with a victory, Laura Gavin and Jennifer Malone earning them a 2-1 win against Buchan Ladies.
It was a great day for Queen's Park as they recorded their first league win of the season and they are off the bottom of the table as a result. A brace from Mhairi Lyle, with Rebecca Madgin adding the other, helped the Spiders beat Inverness City 3-1 with Lisa McKenzie having netted the only goal of the first half for the home side.
