Abbi Grant gave City the lead and Clare Shine added the second, with Leanne Ross netting from the penalty spot during the second half to ensure that they sit on top of the table at the stage when the league splits into two halves for the remainder of the season.
Hibernian once again kept pace with City by scoring eight times without reply against Inverness City. Abigail Harrison and Lia Tweedie were each on target twice while Lizzie Arnot, Lucy Graham, Joelle Murray and an own goal completed the tally and rounded off a fantastic first half of the season for Hibs.
Rangers' defeat to Glasgow City allowed Celtic to move above them into third place after running out 7-0 winners away to Hamilton Academical. Ruesha Littlejohn and Joanne Paton both bagged doubles for the Ghirls along with Niamh Johnstone, Chloe Craig and an own goal.
Aberdeen meanwhile completed a good first half of the season on a winning note, Rachel McLauchlan grabbing the only goal of the game against Stirling University with four minutes remaining.
The most important clash of the day was the Edinburgh derby clash between Hearts and Spartans, with a top six place as the reward for the winning team. In the end it was Spartans who secured yet another top half position with a 4-0 victory, Sarah Ewens netting two of the goals with Louise Mason and Michelle Russell joining her on the scoresheet.
It was a good day for Forfar Farmington who lifted themselves out of the bottom two places by beating Hutchison Vale 4-0.
