Despite a gruelling evening on Thursday in the UEFA Women's Champions League, Glasgow City showed few signs of a hangover and maintained their lead at the top of the Scottish Building Society SWPL 1 with a 4-0 win over Celtic at Petershill Park.
Abbi Grant was brought down in the box in the opening few minutes and Leanne Ross stepped up to convert the spot kick. It was a big moment for the City captain after she heartbreakingly missed a penalty on Thursday night which would have seen City progress in the Champions League. It was 2-0 after 24 minutes when Noelle Murray converted past Megan Cunningham in the Celtic net after good one-two touch football between Katie McCabe and Joanne Love, to set the striker up. After the break, Grant finished off another fine City move to make it 3-0 and Leanne Crichton smashed home on 65 minutes to round off the scoring for the reigning Champions.
Hibernian kept the gap behind the leaders to two points by winning 7-2 away to Aberdeen. In manager Chris Roberts' last match in charge, four second half goals carried Hibs to another important win. Abigail Harrison netted twice and there was one apiece from Lucy Graham, Joelle Murray, Cailin Michie, Amy Gallacher and Rachel McLauchlan.
Stirling University remain in fourth place following their 1-0 success away to Hamilton Academical, who stay four points ahead of Aberdeen. Nicole Pullar settled matters for Stirling with the only goal of the game, just after the hour mark.
Comeback of the day went to Rangers who came from behind to win 3-2 at Spartans and move to within two points of their opponents. Spartans took a fifth minute lead through Simone McMahon and Ronaigh Douglas added a second early in the second half, but after Chelsie Watson had pulled one back, Brogan Hay marked her debut for Rangers by netting the equaliser and Clare Gemmell completed the turnaround when she scored the winning goal.
