The Scottish Women's Premier League made its return from its summer break this week and it was a good day for Stirling University as they moved up to third place in SWPL 1 with a 3-1 win away to Aberdeen.
Nicole Pullar was on target twice for Stirling along with a Jade Gallon penalty to take their side up to their highest ever league position whilst Aberdeen are still searching for their first league win.
Stirling move above Spartans who were held to a goalless draw by Hamilton Academical. Both teams had opportunities to take the game but Hamilton are likely to be the happier of the two sides with picking up a point, which edges them further ahead of Aberdeen.
Rangers emerged triumphant from the Old Firm clash with a 2-1 success against Celtic, to move themselves within two points of their rivals. After a goalless first half, a deflected cross from Hayley Sinclair broke the deadlock in Rangers' favour and Lauren Davidson added a second soon afterwards.
Forfar Farmington continue to blaze a trail at the top of SWPL 2 despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Jeanfield Swifts. Jade McDonald gave Jeanfield the lead early in the second half, before Laura Parsley grabbed a late equaliser for Forfar which preserved their lead of six points.
Second placed Motherwell were unable to make up any ground on Forfar as they battled out a 3-3 draw with Glasgow Girls, who stay five points behind them. Suzanne Grant and Sophie Gallacher were on target for Motherwell, who were two goals up at one stage, with Glasgow Girls hitting back through a Lauren Evans double and Rachel Ashe.
Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale were 1-0 winners over Hearts in their local derby meeting, Nichola Sturrock scoring the only goal of the game just after the quarter hour.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other in a vital clash with Buchan Ladies picking up a crucial 3-2 victory over East Fife to open up a four point lead over their opponents. Leanne Reid netted twice and Jo Murphy the other for Buchan but EUHV's win means that they are still eight points from safety.
