Glasgow City have opened up a three point lead at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League which may turn out to be decisive.
City claimed their fifteenth win of the league campaign when beating Celtic 6-0. First half goals from Leanne Ross, Denise O'Sullivan and Hayley Lauder were added to by a second half hat-trick from Julie Fleeting who came on at the break.
Meanwhile Hibernian's unbeaten record came to an end as they went down to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of in-form Aberdeen. The first half ended goalless but after the break, Donna Paterson headed the Dons in front and despite Rachael Small having a penalty saved, Paterson struck again soon afterwards for her second goal. Rebecca Dempster netted the third to round off a superb result for Aberdeen who have cemented themselves in third place.
Spartans leapfrogged Rangers into fifth place by beating them 2-0. Alana Marshall put Spartans ahead after fifteen minutes and Sarah Ewens wrapped up the win with the second goal, early in the second half.
Stirling University held on to the leadership of the bottom section as they returned to winning ways with a 2-0 success against Hamilton Academical. Both goals came during the second half, Emma Lyons heading them in front from a corner and Rebecca Robertson added the second, also following a corner kick.
Forfar Farmington kept up their good run of form by notching up a 5-0 victory over Hutchison Vale. Tori Sousa gave them a sixth minute advantage which was quickly doubled by Holly Napier, with Sousa completing her double early in the second half. Alex Russell and Sally Patterson added further goals to finish off a good day for Farmington.
Hearts made sure of keeping pace with the teams above them with a 2-0 win against Inverness City. Trish McLaughlin and Amber Robertson both scored to give Hearts their second victory in successive weeks and keep them comfortably in ninth place.
