Glasgow City have opened up a lead of six points at the top of SWPL 1 after winning the top of the table clash 2-0 against Hibernian.
City took the lead during the first half when Fiona Brown broke down the left and her low cross was diverted into her own net by the unfortunate Emma Brownlie under pressure from Julie Fleeting. Brown was also the provider for the second goal as her cross was headed in by Sarah Crilly.
The defeat for Hibs meant that Rangers moved into second place by beating Forfar Farmington 3-1. Megan Foley, Clare Gemmell and Katey Turner scored the goals for Rangers, with Forfar's consolation coming from Nicola Davidson.
Celtic meanwhile scored six times without reply past Spartans to replace them in fourth place. Suzanne Mulvey led the scoring with a hat-trick, Christie Murray weighed in with a brace and Kerry Montgomery was also on target.
Aberdeen claimed their first league win of the season, 3-1 away to Stirling University. Faye McDonald gave the Dons a first half lead which was cancelled out by Nicole Pullar but after the break, Nikki Smith and Chloe Fitzpatrick both scored to seal the points for their side.
The SWPL 2 table is now looking extremely tight with only three points covering the top six teams. These are still led by Hearts despite them going down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 2-0 by third placed Glasgow Girls who scored through Leigh Ferrol and Lauren Coleman.
A draw would have taken Hamilton Academical back to the top but they were also on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline against Hutchison Vale. Judith Shepherd and Bryony Ross scored the goals for Hutchie.
Jeanfield Swifts claimed their second victory in a row, a 3-0 success away to Inverness City which leaves them three points off the pace. Jade McDonald netted a goal in each half for Jeanfield and Danni McGinley was also on target.
Buchan Ladies are also in the running after they edged out Queen's Park by the odd goal in seven.
