The second week of group matches in the SWPL Cup fared a little better than the one before with five matches managing to beat the weather, although nothing was played in Group D.
A full complement of matches was played in Group A for the second week running and it is Spartans who continue to lead the way following their 3-2 win away to Glasgow Women. The Edinburgh side made a strong start to the game with Rebecca Galbraith netting twice inside the opening thirteen minutes but Glasgow hit back and a Cara Henderson double brought them level by half time. After the break, Galbraith headed in from a corner to complete her hat-trick and give Spartans a second straight victory.
Celtic meanwhile kick started their campaign by scoring six times without reply past St Johnstone. Summer Green gave them a second minute lead, with an own goal doubling their advantage ahead of half time. In the second half, Sarah Ewens hit a hat-trick and Rachel Donaldson also got on the scoresheet to round off a good result for the Hoops ahead of their league opener.
Group B got underway for the first time and Hamilton Academical opened up with a 6-1 victory over newly promoted Queen's Park. Amy Anderson netted twice and there was one apiece from Georgie McTear, Ellie Kane, Amy Anderson and MT Gardiner, whilst Ashley McKeown scored a consolation goal for the Spiders.
The performance of the day came in Group C where Aberdeen, on their return to SWPL football, defeated top flight newcomers Heart of Midlothian 2-1. Lauren Gordon gave the Dons a first half lead which was cancelled out after the break by Aisha Maughan, but Eilidh Shore headed in the winning goal for Aberdeen with fifteen minutes remaining.
It is Stirling University who are the early group leaders though, following their 4-2 win away to Boroughmuir Thistle. Naomi Welch was on target twice for Stirling, along with Sam Gallagher and Bethany Kerr.
