City close in on title
 Women's Football News 13 Oct 2016
 
Glasgow City are potentially one point away from a tenth successive SWPL title following their 3-0 victory over Forfar Farmington on Sunday. 
 
Due to being inbetween the first and second legs of their UEFA Women's Champions League tie against Eskilstuna Utd, City took the chance to rest some of their senior players but were still strong enough to move themselves closer to the title against their relegated opponents. Sarah Crilly gave them an early lead and Sam Kerr quickly added a second, before Crilly completed the scoring during the second half. City will be crowned as Champions if they avoid defeat in their next match against second placed Hibernian.
 
Hibernian did keep the title race alive as they also won 3-0 against Celtic. As with City, Hibs were also in the midst of a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich but also warmed up well as Lizzie Arnot, Abigail Harrison and Rachel McLauchlan were all on target.
 
Rangers are back in the top half of the table after scoring six times without reply away to Aberdeen. Clare Gemmell put them ahead inside the opening ten minutes, with Chelsie Watson adding a second just before the break. Chantelle Brown added a third soon after the restart and Gemmell went on to complete a hat-trick during the second half, with Katey Turner also getting on the scoresheet.
 
Stirling University meanwhile leapfrogged Spartans into fifth place after beating them 3-0. Ashley McDonald and Jade Gallon ensured that Stirling led by two goals at the break and Jen Godfrey rounded off the scoring late on with the third.
 
The top of the table clash in SWPL 2 went the way of Hamilton Academical, who defeated Hearts 3-1 to replace them as leaders on goal difference. Hearts had gone top during the week without kicking a ball, having been awarded the points from their 1-0 defeat to Hutchison Vale due to their opponents playing an ineligible player, but two Mhairi Lyle goals, plus one from Gill Inglis, gave Hamilton a vital win despite Michelle Stewart replying.
 
Glasgow Girls meanwhile ran out 11-0 winners over Inverness City and this ensures they are level on points with the top two. Samantha McManus led the scoring for Glasgow with a six-goal haul, Chloe Docherty weighed in with a brace and further strikes came from Charmaine McGuire, Lauren Evans and Katie Hay.
 
Hutchison Vale also recorded a large victory, scoring nine times past Queen's Park. Margaux Durand-Watson, Ashley Fish and Nicola Sturrock all scored twice and there was one apiece from Lisa MacFarlane, Anna Murray and Michelle Russell.
 
Jeanfield Swifts look likely to finish in fifth place after they edged out Buchan Ladies 4-3. Eilidh McIntyre, Danni McGinley, Hannah Clark and Rhianna Tweedie netted the goals for Jeanfield.
