Glasgow City kept hold of the leadership of SWPL 1 by scoring eight times without reply against Forfar Farmington on the day the league resumed action following its mid-season break.
Lauren McMurchie headed City in front midway through the first half, before Leanne Ross and Julie Fleeting each added doubles and there was one apiece from Fiona Brown, Savannah McCarthy and Erin Cuthbert.
The two teams immediately below the leaders met each other and it was Hibernian who emerged as 2-1 winners over Celtic, a result which means they stay two points behind Glasgow City. Lizzie Arnot gave Hibs the lead, with Suzanne Mulvey equalising shortly afterwards. Both teams had chances in a well contested game until injury time, when captain Joelle Murray fired home the goal which earned Hibs three valuable points.
Fourth placed Spartans were held to a 2-2 draw by Stirling University, who have moved off the bottom of the table. Katie Reilly gave Spartans a first half lead which was cancelled out by Rachel Donaldson. Alana Marshall put the Edinburgh side back in front and looked to be on their way to another victory when Corrie McIlravey saved a penalty from Jade Gallon, but Nicole Pullar was to grab an important equaliser for Stirling with nine minutes remaining.
Rangers made a winning restart when they defeated Aberdeen 2-0. Both goals came during the second half, Lisa Swanson giving them the lead two minutes after half time and Sarah Robertson sealed the points late on when she followed up to score after Clare Gemmell's initial penalty had been saved by Becky Flaherty.
Glasgow Girls continue to set the pace in SWPL 2 following their 2-0 victory away to Inverness City. Lauren Evans opened the scoring midway through the first half and Nicola Hardie added the second on the hour mark to preserve their one point lead at the top of the table.
Hearts stay in second place after they won 1-0 against Hamilton Academicals, to open up a lead of five points over their opponents. A tightly contested affair was settled in the dying minutes when Gemma Mason scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
Hutchison Vale meanwhile consolidated themselves in fourth place with an emphatic 11-1 success against Queen's Park and Jeanfield Swifts follow on after they defeated Buchan Ladies 4-1, thanks to doubles from Ellie Cowie and Eilidh McIntyre.
