Champions Glasgow City got the new Scottish Women's Premier League season off to a successful start with a 7-0 victory over Stirling University.
Pre-season signing Savannah Jordan scored her second hat-trick in her second competitive game for City and she got the scoring underway after five minutes, heading home a Leanne Ross cross after full back Nicola Docherty had been fouled near the touchline. Noelle Murray made it two just after the half hour mark and shortly into the second half, Ross added the third with a good finish into the back of the net from just inside the box. Jordan got her second of the game with a finish into the bottom corner, before completing her hat-trick on 72 minutes by finishing a terrific team goal which saw excellent play from Murray and Brogan Hay in setting up Jordan. Defender Keeva Keenan joined in the scoring with a half volley from a City corner and Kodie Hay fired an excellent effort past Logan with seven minutes remaining to complete the high scoring win for City.
Hibernian also opened up by picking up three points from a 4-2 victory away to Rangers. Abigail Harrison, Lucy Graham and Emma Brownlie ensured that Hibs were three up at half time and Graham added a second after the break, before Clare Gemmell and Hannah Robertson pulled back late goals for the home side.

It was not a great day for the newly promoted teams as Motherwell were also beaten, 3-0 at home by Jeanfield Swifts.
