Things are closer than ever at the top of SBSSWPL 1 with only one goal now separating the top two after both recorded convincing victories on Sunday.
Glasgow City continue to sit on top of the table on goal difference with five games remaining following a 4-1 win over Hamilton Academical. Sam Kerr put City ahead in the opening moments, to put City in the driving seat at the break. Youngster Carly Girasoli made it 2-0 from a corner, before substitute Jordan McLintock added a third on 61 minutes. Abbi Grant made it four, before Accies got a consolation goal with five minutes remaining through Lori Gardner.
Hibernian meanwhile narrowed the gap, goal difference wise, by beating Celtic 7-2. Chelsea Cornet and Abi Harrison gave them a two-goal inside the opening half hour, but Celtic battled back to level the scores by half time thanks to Sarah Ewens and Kathleen McGovern. After the break, Emma Brownlie and Siobhan Hunter restored the two-goal advantage for Hibs and this time they went on to seal the points, Harrison netting twice more to complete her hat-trick and Jamie Lee Napier also getting on the scoresheet.
Forfar Farmington hold on to fourth place after they drew for the first time, 2-2 with Stirling University who edged closer towards safety. Gemma Mason gave Stirling a first half lead which was cancelled out just before the interval by Caroline Heron. Forfar went in front just ahead of the hour when Heron netted her second but Stirling hit back and grabbed themselves an important point when Demi-Lee Falconer equalised during injury time.
Spartans have lifted themselves off the foot of the table with a 1-0 success away to Rangers. The only goal of the game came during the second half, when Michaela McAlonie curling home a free kick to hand Spartans their second win of the season and take them out of the relegation zone at the expense of Hamilton.
