Glasgow City made it a happy homecoming to Petershill Park with a 5-0 victory over Spartans which keeps them at the top of the Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League.
Abbi Grant gave City the lead with less than a minute on the clock and she added a quickfire second, before Noelle Murray made it three. Hayley Lauder and Leanne Ross also got on the scoresheet as the reigning Champions rounded off the scoring before half time, for a result which maintains their lead of two points.
Hibernian stayed close at hand in second by winning 2-0 away to Stirling University. Hibs also did all of the scoring in the first half, Rachel McLauchlan giving them the lead and Abigail Harrison netting the second to put their side in good stead for their crunch meeting with Glasgow City on Thursday night.
Celtic meanwhile ran out 4-0 victors away to Hamilton Academical and have moved up into the top three as a result. Natalie Ross and Sarah Ewens ensured that the Hoops were two ahead at half time and both players rounded off a good day for their side by completing their doubles to seal the points during the second half.
Aberdeen picked up a valuable point from a 2-2 draw against Rangers which sees them halve the gap between themselves and Hamilton. However, it could have been an even better day for the Dons who led 2-1 going into injury time, when Rachael O'Neill grabbed an equaliser for Rangers. Aberdeen had twice taken the lead through Hannah Stewart and Johan Fraser, with Lauren Davidson having earlier got on the scoresheet in reply.
Forfar Farmington's lead at the top of SWPL 2 was trimmed to six points as they were held to a goalless draw by East Fife. Danni McGinley and Caroline Heron both hit the woodwork for Farmington who were kept out by a fine defensive display from East Fife, who picked up an important point.
Second placed Motherwell kept up their pursuit of Forfar with a 4-1 victory over Buchan Ladies. After going behind to an early goal, Suzanne Winters quickly equalised and they added further first half goals through Kaitlyn Canavan and Stacey Cook, before Winters netted her second from the penalty spot midway through the second half.
