Internationals meant that the action in the SBS Scottish Women's Premier League was confined to SWPL 2 on Sunday, but a full fixture programme went ahead.
Two teams head the table with maximum points from their first two matches, headed by newly promoted Aberdeen after they raced to a 9-0 victory away to Boroughmuir Thistle.
After having come from behind to win 4-3 in their opening fixture, the Dons took that momentum into this game and were two ahead inside the opening five minutes, thanks to goal from Bailley Collins and Bayley Hutchison. Johan Fraser made it three on the half hour and Eilidh Shore further increased their lead ahead of half time. After the break, Hutchison netted her second and Jenna Penman made it six midway through the half. Shore completed her double ten minutes later and after Francesca Ogilvie joined them on the scoresheet, Hutchison rounded off the scoring five minutes from time with her hat-trick goal.
Hamilton Academical are the other team on six points as they won a much closer affair, 1-0 against Kilmarnock who were starting their campaign a week late. Indeed, a tight match was settled with just three minutes remaining, when Georgina McTear scored the only goal of the game for the Accies.
Partick Thistle are in third place after their meeting with Dundee Utd finished in a 1-1 draw. Thistle got off to a flying start as Clare Docherty put them in front with only five minutes on the clock but United hit back after the break, earning themselves a share of the spoils and registering their first point when Jade McLaren equalised midway through the second half.
Glasgow Women had been the opening day leaders but they went down to their first defeat, 2-0 at the hands of Queen's Park. Mhairi Crooks opened the scoring for the Spiders during the first half, before Louisa Boyes wrapped up the win with the second goal in injury time.
St Johnstone were the other team to commence their season a week late and they got off to a winning start, thanks to a 2-1 success away to Stirling University. Morgan Steedman gave Saints a first half lead which was cancelled out on the stroke of half time by Robin Gallacher, but a goal late on from Rebecca McGowan proved to be decisive in favour of St Johnstone.
