Glasgow City gave new manager Scott Booth a winning start as they beat Celtic 3-0 to remain on top of the Scottish Women's Premier League.
On the resumption of the league following their mid-season break, Abbi Grant gave City the lead moments before half time. Clare Shine doubled the advantage after the interval and a header from Lauren McMurchie rounded off the scoring to keep City ahead on goal difference.
Hibernian are still keeping pace with the reigning Champions and maintained their challenge with a fine 2-0 win over Aberdeen. Lizzie Arnot gave Hibs the lead and Abigail Harrison wrapped up the win with the second goal.
There is now a twelve point gap between the top two and third placed Celtic, with just three points covering the next four teams. This is because Spartans denied Rangers the chance to go back into the top three by winning 5-4 in a thrilling match. Rangers got off to a great start with Lisa Swanson putting them in front in the opening minute and Katey Turner adding a second, with Ronaigh Douglas pulling one back ahead of the break. A sixteen minute hat-trick from Sarah Ewens turned the match on its head to put Spartans two goals ahead but Rangers battled back and drew level again thanks to Hayley Sinclair and an own goal. However with a minute remaining, a 35-yard strike from Carla Jackson proved to be decisive and ensured victory for Spartans.
Stirling University head the bottom section of the table following a 2-1 success away to Hamilton Academical. Rachel Donaldson netted both goals for the university side, with Gill Inglis grabbing a late consolation for the Accies.
Hearts also picked up a good win on their travels, running out 3-0 winners at Inverness City. Gemma Mason, Brogan Anderson and Demi Falconer were all on target to keep Hearts level on points with Stirling University.
Forfar Farmington moved three points away from the bottom two, courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Hutchison Vale. All of the goals came in the final quarter of the game, Nicola Davidson and Kayleigh Noble giving Forfar a two-goal lead, with Hayley Cunningham pulling a goal back for Hutchie late on.
