Spartans caused a huge shock in SWPL 1 when they defeated leaders and reigning Champions Glasgow City 3-0.
Alana Marshall gave Spartans the lead via a 20-yard free kick and the Edinburgh side needed to withstand a spell of pressure from City, who hit the bar through captain Leanne Ross. Kirsty McLaughlin then doubled Spartans' advantage and Sarah Clelland marked her debut for the club by scoring the third late on.
This is the first time that Glasgow City have been beaten in a league since September 2014, when they lost 1-0 to the same opponents, and completes an unusually bad week for the club following on from their League Cup Final defeat to Hibernian a few days earlier.
In contrast, a great few days for Hibernian continued with a 3-0 victory away to Stirling University, which leaves them five points off the pace. Sarah Ewens gave them an early lead but it wasn't until the second half that they sealed the win with further strikes from Emma Brownlie and Lizzie Arnot.
An eventful Sunday also saw an Old Firm clash and it was Celtic who emerged as 2-1 winners over Rangers, a result which keeps them in third place. Celtic took the lead midway through the first half through captain Kelly Clark and Chloe Craig added a second from the penalty spot just before half time, following a foul on Suzanne Mulvey. Clare Gemmell pulled a goal back for Rangers on the hour mark but Celtic saw the game out for three important points.
Aberdeen pulled away from the bottom places, thanks to a 3-0 victory over Forfar Farmington. The Dons struck twice inside the opening five minutes with goals from Cheryl Anderson and Hannah Stewart and the win was wrapped up with an own goal midway through the second half.
Things remain tight at the top of SWPL 2 with Hamilton Academical holding on to the leadership on goal difference after they defeated Queen's Park 5-1. Hamilton took the lead courtesy of Gillian Inglis shortly before half time and in the second half, substitute Teigan McCann hit a hat-trick and Amie McGill rounded off the scoring late on.
Second placed Glasgow Girls ran out 5-1 winners at Buchan Ladies to keep pace with the Accies. Samantha McManus, Lauren Coleman, Lauren Evans, Charmaine McGuire and Megan Logan all scored a goal apiece to keep their promotion challenge on course.
Hearts stay in third, one point behind the top two, following their 2-1 win against Jeanfield Swifts. A goal in each half from Ashley Carse and Brogan Anderson gave them the points, with Jeanfield pulling one back through Jade McDonald.
Hutchison Vale are up into the top half of the table after scoring six times without reply past Inverness City. Ashley Fish had a great day in front of goal as she bagged a five-goal haul and Anna Hume joined her on the scoresheet.
