The Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League made its long awaited return to action on Sunday with a full round of SWPL 1 matches and it was a good start for the top two as both recorded victories away from home.
Rangers hold on to the leadership on goal difference after running out 6-0 winners over Hearts. Samantha Kerr and Kirsty Howat put Rangers two ahead inside the opening twelve minutes, before Lizzie Arnot netted a brace and Zoe Ness added a further goal ahead of half time. Kerr scored her second goal after the break to complete a convincing restart for Rangers.
The teams which occupy the next two positions in the table met each other and it was Glasgow City who won 3-0 against Celtic, to stay level on points with Rangers. Aoife Colvill gave City the lead just before the half hour and the game remained in the balance until a five minute spell after the break, when Arna Sif Asgrimsdottir and Niamh Farrelly added further goals to seal the points for the reigning Champions, who had been beaten by Rangers in their last match before the enforced break.
Spartans were having a good season before play was halted and they have picked up well once again, beating Hibernian 2-0 in their Edinburgh local derby. The first half was goalless but goals in quick succession after the interval from Katherine Smart and Rebecca Galbraith earned Spartans a win which takes them into the top half of the table.
Forfar Farmington meanwhile notched up a 3-2 win away to Motherwell which takes them further away from the bottom two places and gave new manager Kevin McGreskin a winning start in his first match in charge. Lisa Ryan opened the scoring for Forfar, three minutes after half time, with Motherwell equalising four minutes later through Abby Callaghan. Cassie Cowper restored Farmington's lead on the hour and Alana Bruce increased their lead. Lori Gardner pulled one back with six minutes remaining but Forfar held on for three important points, which move them closer to a mid-table position.
