Glasgow City have gone back to the top of the SWPL 1 table after a 2-1 victory over previous leaders Hibernian to avenge their Premier League Cup semi final defeat seven days earlier.
City dominated the opening of the game and it was no surprise when Noelle Murray fired home a great half volley after showing some good individual skill to make space outside the box. Hayley Lauder then made it 2-0 on 22 minutes as she fired a right foot shot low into the bottom corner. It could have been 3-0 soon after as Murray robbed the Hibs defence of the ball before tearing down on goal, only to be denied one-on-one by an excellent save from Hibs keeper Jenna Fife. A bruised Hibernian emerged a stronger force in the second period and pulled a goal back when Rachael Small fired home after some pin ball in the City box after a Hibs corner, but it proved not enough to get her side any points from the top of the table encounter between the country's two top sides.
Spartans and Celtic met in another repeat of last week's Premier League Cup semi finals and this was just as tightly contested. Celtic took the lead during the first half through Mairead Fulton but after the break, Spartans fought back and Zoe Johnstone scored late on to earn the Edinburgh side a 1-1 draw and preserve their unbeaten start to the league season. Rangers meanwhile marked new manager Amy McDonald's first match in charge by winning 4-0 away to Hamilton Academical. Rachel O'Neill headed them in front from a corner and Hannah Robertson put them two ahead on the stroke of half time. Chelsie Watson further increased Rangers' lead midway through the second half and Claire Adams rounded off the scoring late on. In the other game, Aberdeen and Stirling University each picked up a point as they battled out a goalless draw which means that both teams stay in the bottom three.
