Glasgow City rounded off another Championship winning season with a 5-3 victory over Rangers on the final day.
Lisa Swanson opened the scoring for Rangers in the first minute but City were soon back on level terms, Leanne Ross finding the net from a free kick to become her team's all time top goalscorer, overtaking Suzanne Lappin's record of 231 goals. Rangers regained the lead through a Katey Turner penalty, City once again levelling with a goal from Cheryl McCulloch. Another penalty resulted in Rangers going ahead for a third time, this time converted by Lisa Swanson, with the title winners hitting back once more with a third equaliser from Clare Shine. City then went ahead for the first time in the game when Ross scored her second from the penalty spot and Erin Cuthbert sealed the points with the fifth goal. The match was also notable for being the last played by Rangers defender Rhonda Jones, who is retiring after an excellent career which included winning 117 caps for Scotland.
Runners-up Hibernian also ended their campaign on a winning note, beating Edinburgh rivals Spartans 5-1. Siobhan Hunter and Claire Williamson ensured that Hibs led by two goals at the break and this advantage was doubled by the hour mark, thanks to Lizzie Arnot and Rachel McLauchlan. Nicola Mawson pulled a goal back for Spartans before Hibs completed the scoring with a strike from Sarah Ewens.
Celtic made sure their long journey to Aberdeen was a successful one, running out 3-0 winners. The first half was goalless but after the restart, Cara McBrearty gave Celtic the lead and they went on to add further goals through Suzanne Mulvey and Kirsty Howat.
Stirling University will end the season in fourth place - their highest ever finish - after they won 1-0 away to Forfar Farmington. Nicole Pullar scored the only goal of the game to make sure that Stirling moved above Rangers to end up in the top half of the table.
Hamilton Academical are the winners of the SWPL 2 title following their 3-1 victory over Buchan Ladies. The Accies went into the game needing a win in order to secure the crown and they duly did so with goals from Mhairi Lyle, MT McGuiness and Joanne Paton with Lydia Johnson replying late on.
Hearts will have to settle for second place despite a 3-0 win against Hutchison Vale. Louise Moultray gave Hearts a first half lead which was doubled ahead of the break by an own goal, with Ashley Carse completing the scoring during the second half.
Glasgow Girls also ended up just two points behind the title winners after they finished off by defeating Jeanfield Swifts 3-2. Charmaine McGuire, Samantha McManus and Sarah Curtis scored Glasgow's goals, while Jade McDonald and Danni McGinley were on target for Jeanfield.
The remaining match between Queen's Park and Inverness City saw the two teams playing for pride, with both having been confirmed as relegated recently. It was Queen's Park who ran out 4-2 winners and this result means that they finish up two points ahead of Inverness in the table.
