An Abigail Harrison goal in stoppage time rescued Hibs a point in a highly entertaining 3-3 draw with Glasgow City at the Excelsior Stadium.
Denise O'Sullivan got City off to the perfect start on seven, minutes finishing well into the bottom corner after being set up by Julie Fleeting. Harrison replied soon after with a long range effort which escaped the diving hands of City keeper Lee Alexander and nestled into the net.
Harrison then got her side in front firing home at the back post following a Lizzie Arnot cross, giving the visitors a 2-1 lead at half time.
City responded strongly after the break and were it not for two outstanding saves from Jenna Fife in the Hibs net and a bit of luck from the post, Hibs could have been a few goals behind. The home side perseverance finally paid off when full back Nicky Docherty curled a right foot shot high into the back of the net.
City then took the lead with fifteen minutes remaining when Lauren McMurchie calmly converted in a crowded penalty box.
With City looking like running out the game with the points, Harrison chased a long ball which City were unable to defend and got her hat-trick with 30 seconds of added time remaining.
It was the exact same scoreline and pattern of goals the last time these two sides met in the League and without doubt the games have been the highlight of the SWPL season so far. City will feel it is points dropped after being so close to the full time whistle, but credit to Hibs as they battled right to the end and stay joint top of the SWPL behind City on goal difference only.
Glasgow City now turn their attentions to the UEFA Women's Champions League last 32 draw this Thursday and are back in action away to Aberdeen next weekend, whilst Hibs will be at home to Rangers.
