After being relegated from the top flight at the end of last season, Aberdeen served notice that they intend to be amongst the front runners in SWPL 2 this time around as they ran out 4-1 winners away to Glasgow Girls.
Kirsty MacDonald did give Glasgow an early lead but an equaliser on the stroke of half time from Jo Fraser proved to be the turning point as, in the second half, Lynn Duncan, Chloe Fitzpatrick and Samantha McPherson all scored to send Aberdeen home with the points.
Newly promoted Central Girls Academy marked their first ever game in the league with an impressive 3-1 victory at St Johnstone, who were playing under their new name for the first time. All of Central's goals came during the first half with Kim McAlpine netting twice and Abby Callaghan adding the other, before Rachel Wolecki grabbed a second half consolation for the home side.
The other league newcomers did not quite fare so well though, Kilmarnock going down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Motherwell. An own goal in Motherwell's favour separated the sides at the interval and after Sara Paterson levelled the scores during the second half, Hayley Cunningham put Motherwell back in front and they held on for a winning start.
The spoils were shared in the other game, Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale battling out a 1-1 draw with Hearts in their local derby. Danielle Pagliarulo gave Hearts the lead from the penalty spot, with EUHV hitting back after the game and earning themselves a point when Anna Hume equalised.
