It was a good day for Hibernian and Cardiff Met Women as both recorded victories to open up their UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying group campaigns.
The SWPL runners-up and WPWL Champions have been drawn in the same group and Hibs were the first in action, taking on Georgia title winners FC Nike. Grant Scott's side took the lead on seventeen minutes through Colette Cavanagh, before a second half brace from Jamie-Lee Napier sealed a 3-0 win for her side.
Cardiff Met meanwhile took on group hosts Pomurje and nearly took an early lead when Madison Schupbach's shot hit the post. Pomurje themselves hit the woodwork twice during the second half but Met had the better of play throughout the match and were rewarded two minutes from time, when Naomi Clipston latched onto a through ball to score the only goal of the game.
The two teams are back in action on Saturday morning, when they come face to face against each other in a match which should go a long way towards deciding the outcome of the group.
Linfield meanwhile faced a daunting task in what is a very tough group and were beaten 4-0 by Norwegian side LSK Skvinner. However the scoreline did not reflect the whole game as LSK, whose team included a number of players from the Norway squad in the World Cup, scored all four goals in the first half, Elise Thorsnes netting twice along with Therese Asland and Meryll Abrahamsen. A good second half display from Linfield ensured that no further goals were conceded after the break and they will next play on Saturday against PAOK, who lost 5-0 to hosts Anderlecht in the other match.
