City tighten grip on race
 Women's Football Scottish WPL News - 14 May 2021
 
It has been a good few days for Glasgow City as they strengthened their position at the top of SWPL 1 with a four-point haul against their two title rivals.
 
On Sunday, City took on Rangers and won 2-0 to go six points ahead of their opponents. Priscilla Chinchilla gave City a second minute lead and the Costa Rican wrapped up a big win for her side with her second goal just ahead of half time.
 
City then played away to Celtic on Wednesday night and would have been the happier side with the resulting goalless draw. Janine van Wyk saw a first half penalty saved by Celtic goalkeeper Chloe Logan and after the break, Lee Alexander repeated the feat at the other end when she kept out a spot kick from Sarah Ewens.
 
Celtic had started the day in second place having beaten Motherwell 3-0 on Sunday. Sarah Ewens headed them in front, with Rachel Donaldson and Sarah Teegarden adding the other goals ahead of half time.
 
Rangers were to reclaim second in midweek as they defeated Hearts 4-0. Lizzie Arnot netted a first half brace, either side of a goal from Zoe Ness, and Sonia O'Neill rounded off the scoring during the second half.
 
This was a second defeat in four days for Hearts, following their 3-0 reverse at the hands of fourth placed Spartans. Ronaigh Douglas put Spartans ahead with a long range strike and they sewed up the win with further goals in the last fifteen minutes from Katherine Smart and Michaela McAlonie.
 
Hibernian meanwhile kept up their recent goal glut by scoring five times without reply past Forfar Farmington. Carla Boyce opened up the scoring on the half hour, with Colette Cavanagh adding a goal either side of half time. Joelle Murray slotted home the fourth and Amy Muir netted the final goal for Hibs with five minutes remaining.
 
Spartans and Hibernian then met in midweek in an Edinburgh derby match which finished level at 1-1, meaning Spartans stay three points ahead of their rivals. Caley Gibb gave Spartans the lead two minutes ahead of half time, with Hibs battling back after the break to earn themselves a share of the spoils through Leah Eddie.
 
Motherwell meanwhile moved themselves to within two points of Forfar Farmington after winning their meeting 1-0. Jade Gallon headed in a Chelsie Watson free kick for the only goal of the game, during the first half.
