Hibernian have gone three points clear at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League after a 2-0 victory in the Edinburgh derby clash against Hearts.
It was the first time the clubs have met at this level and goals from Lia Tweedie and Kirsty Smith gave Hibs their fourth straight victory at the start of the campaign.
Glasgow City sport the league's other 100% record and are in second place following their 12-0 win against Inverness City. It was a bittersweet day for the reigning Champions as they bade farewell to record goalscorer Suzanne Lappin, who marked her final appearance for the club by getting on the scoresheet, taking her career record to 231 goals in 259 appearances. Susan Fairlie led the scoring on the day with a four-goal haul and there was also one apiece from Lauren McMurchie, Courtney Whyte, Rhonda Jones, Abbi Grant, Leanne Ross, Kerry Montgomery and Erin Cuthbert.
Celtic notched up a 4-0 victory away to Forfar Farmington and sit in third place. Ruesha Littlejohn bagged a hat-trick, including a spectacular 40-yard strike, and Sam McManus added the other goal as the Ghirls recorded their third league win in a row.
Rangers had started the day in second place but went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 2-0 at home by Aberdeen. Rachael Small capped a great result for the Dons by scoring a goal in each half - the first league goals that Rangers have conceded this season.
Spartans bounced back from defeat seven days earlier to score ten times without reply against Hutchison Vale. Louise Mason, Sarah Ewens and Alana Marshall all netted doubles and they were joined on the scoresheet by Ciara Barnes, Michelle Russell, Kirsty McLaughlin and Ronaigh Douglas.
It was a red letter day for Stirling University as they recorded their first ever Premier League victory, 3-1 against Hamilton Academical. Nicole Pullar was on target twice, with the other goal coming from Jill Paterson.
