Clare Shine led the scoring by hitting a hat-trick and she was joined on the scoresheet by Savannah McCarthy, Keeva Keenan, Erin Cuthbert and Haley Rosen.
Second placed Hibernian survived a scare before hitting back to win 5-1 against Forfar Farmington, for whom the result was a fatal one as it confirmed they will be relegated to SWPL 2 next season. Amy Gallacher gave Forfar hope when she gave them the lead during the first half but an own goal turned things around five minutes before the break and during the second half, Lizzie Arnot found the net three times including twice from the penalty spot, and Caroline Heron added the other goal.

Hayley Sinclair, Rhonda Jones, Sarah Robertson, Chantelle Brown and Kirstin McGuire netted the goals for Rangers whilst on target for Spartans were Collette Cavanagh, Louise Mason, Sarah Clelland and Laura Gavin with a penalty.
The SWPL 2 title race could not be any closer with all of the top three level on points, with three games left to play. These are headed by Hamilton Academical who top the table on goal difference after beating previous leaders Glasgow Girls 4-2. Mhairi Lyle and MT McGuiness, Deborah McLeod and Lori Gardner gave the Accies a four-goal lead during the first half and although Georgie McTear and Lauren Evans pulled goals back either side of half time, they saw the game out to give their promotion challenge a huge boost at the expense of one of their main rivals.
Hearts are now sandwiched inbetween those two teams in second place, they netted six times without reply against Queen's Park who are destined to finish in the bottom two. Brogan Anderson spearheaded the win with a four-goal haul and she was joined on the scoresheet by Rachel Walkingshaw and Gemma Mason.
Inverness City are also relegated following their 5-2 defeat at the hands of Buchan Ladies. Leanne Reid hit a hat-trick for Buchan and there was one apiece from Sophie Anderson and Zoe Smart.
Hutchison Vale look set to finish in fourth place after they won 3-2 against Jeanfield Swifts. Nichola Sturrock scored a late penalty to earn the points for Hutchie, who earlier found the net through Michelle Russell and Ashley Fish, while Eilidh McIntyre and Donna Shaw replied for Jeanfield.
