Hibernian picked up the result they needed to book their place in the last 32 of the UEFA Women's Champions League when they won 2-1 against Pomurje.
After beating Cardiff Met Women 2-1 in their second group match, Grant Scott's team went into their final game regarding a point to be sure of finishing in top spot. They got off to the perfect start on seven minutes, as Jamie-Lee Napier raced onto a pass from Amy Muir and gave her side the lead. Lauren Davidson then headed in the second from close range following a Kirsten Reilly corner and although Anja Prsa pulled one back for Pomurje from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time, there were no more scares for Hibs as they made it three wins out of three for a place in the knockout stages.
Cardiff Met meanwhile did all they could when defeating FC Nike 5-1 and they just miss out, despite the best performance by a Welsh team in the competition. Madison Schupbach gave Met a first half lead and the striker quickly added a second, with Naomi Clipston making it three before the break when following up to score after her initial penalty had been saved. Robyn Pinder headed in the fourth midway through the second half and Clipston netted her second late on, before Nike grabbed a consolation in injury time.
Linfield also had an encouraging campaign in a very tough group and finish in third place after going down 3-1 to group winners Anderlecht in their final match.
The group hosts needed a point to make sure of top spot and took a two-goal lead during the first half, thanks to a brace from Laura Deloose. Kirsty McGuinness pulled one back for Linfield from the penalty spot after the break but Anderlecht secured the victory when Jana Coryn scored their third.
