The top two are continuing to set a hot pace in the SBS Scottish Women's Premier League and it is Rangers who remain as leaders on goal difference at the end of the day following their 5-0 victory over Spartans.
Although Spartans did give a good account of themselves in the match which was televised live by BBC Alba, it was Rangers who took the lead through Kirsty Howat midway through the first half and Zoe Ness made it two just before half time. Lizzie Arnot drove home a third shortly after the hour and Rangers went on to crown the win with further goals late on from Clare Gemmell and Howat.
The win actually returned Rangers to the top of the table after Glasgow City had spent a few hours there, thanks to a 7-0 success away to Forfar Farmington. The home side went into the match on the back of a good win seven days earlier, but it was City who took the lead two minutes before the interval thanks to Sharon Wojcik. Ole Fulutudilu bagged a quickfire double in the opening five minutes of the second half, with Nicole Robertson and Julia Molin adding further goals ahead of the hour. Joanne Love increased City's advantage with eight minutes remaining, before Fulutudilu completed her hat-trick in the dying minutes.
Celtic gained a much needed 3-0 victory against Hearts to get themselves back on track in their quest to chase after the top two. The first half was goalless but the deadlock was broken twelve minutes after the restart, Rachel Donaldson opening the scoring for the Hoops. Sarah Ewens then sealed the points for Celtic as she netted twice to leave her side still five points off the pace, whilst Hearts remain at the foot of the table on goal difference.
Hibernian were another side to pick up a morale boosting win and they are back up into the top half after edging out Motherwell by the odd goal in five. Twenty goals were scored in the four SWPL 1 matches on Sunday but this was the only one in which both teams found the net, sparked off by Rosie Slater giving the Women of Steel a 26th minute lead. Hibs hit back right away to equalise through Amy Gallacher and Colette Cavanagh ensured they were in front at the interval. Gallacher netted her second goal early after the restart and this just proved to be enough to give Hibernian the points, despite Nicole Pullar pulling one back for Motherwell late on.
