Glasgow City are on the verge of winning the Scottish Women's Premier League for a twelfth successive season after winning their showdown 2-1 against Hibernian on Sunday.
Although the teams went into the game level on points and almost on goal difference, after Hibs' win in the SSE Scottish Cup semi finals seven days previously and City's midweek exertions in Europe, where they were beaten 5-0 by Barcelona in the Champions League, City may well have started the game in the unfamiliar position as underdogs. However, they settled down quickly and took the lead with five minutes on the clock, Kirsty Howat bundling in from close range. They stayed in front until midway through the second half when Siobhan Hunter scored at the far post following a corner. Barely a minute later, City were back in front, Leanne Crichton scoring from six yards, and they held on despite late Hibs pressure to record a victory which leaves them tantalisingly close to another title, needing to avoid defeat against Spartans in the final match this coming Sunday.
Third placed Celtic meanwhile fought back from two goals down to beat Spartans 3-2. Tegan Reynolds fired Spartans into a sixth minute lead and Elena Santoyo-Brown added a second on the half hour. Colette Cavanagh pulled on back two minutes later and Celtic were back on level terms in the opening minute of the second half, thanks to Sarah Ewens. The comeback was completed when Claire Adams scored a decisive third with fourteen minutes remaining.
Rangers are all but certain of a top half finish following their 3-0 victory away to Forfar Farmington. Jade Gallon was on target twice, either side of an own goal.
It may be too late for Hamilton Academical but they produced one of their best performances of the season to beat Stirling University 3-0. The first half was goalless but strikes from Katie Rice, Lori Gardner and Mhairi Lyle secured the points for the Accies.
