Top three power on
 Women's Football Scottish WPL News - 21 May 2021
 
The top three in SWPL 1 all stepped up their respective title challenges with two victories in four days to leave things as they were at the top of the table.
 
On Sunday, leaders Glasgow City scored eight times against Forfar Farmington. Priscilla Chinchilla led the scoring for the title holders with a hat-trick, Megan Foley weighed in with a double and there was one apiece from Clare Shine, Aoife Colvill and Mairead Fulton.
 
Three days later, Scott Booth's side followed this up with a 4-2 success away to Motherwell. Leanne Ross' early goal for City was cancelled out by Rosie Slater, but Mairead Fulton restored City's lead a minute later and Aoife Colvill netted a third on the stroke of half time. Kodie Hay gave the Women of Steel hope after the break but Janine van Wyk made the points safe for City shortly afterwards, to preserve their lead of four points.
 
Second placed Rangers produced a good display when beating Spartans 5-0 on Sunday. The home side were not helped by an early injury to goalkeeper Rachel Harrison but Lizzie Arnot fired in from the penalty spot to give Rangers a lead which was doubled by a Rebecca Galbraith own goal and Zoe Ness made it three by half time. Chelsea Cornet ended a fine move by putting Rangers further in front and Bali Devi Ngangom completed the scoring with a 25-yard strike late on.
 
Rangers followed this up in midweek by winning 3-0 at Hibernian, to keep up the chase after Glasgow City. Carly Girasoli headed Rangers ahead after six minutes and the defender scored her second on the half hour mark. Girasoli almost completed a hat-trick after the break with a header which struck the bar, but Brianna Westrup did add a third with eleven minutes remaining.
 
Celtic meanwhile kept up their challenge, first with a 3-0 victory against Hearts. The Hoops were made to work hard by the home side, whose goalkeeper Charlotte Parker-Smith had a fine game, but Chloe Craig made the breakthrough eight minutes into the second half. A Claire Williamson own goal doubled Celtic's lead and Anna Filbey netted the third goal late on.
 
Celtic then defeated Spartans 4-0 to stretch their unbeaten run to nine games and keep a fifth straight clean sheet. Sarah Ewens opened the scoring, with Jacynta Galabadaarachchi and Jodie Bartle adding further goals before the break. Mariah Lee completed a good few days for her side with the final goal, early in the second half.
 
Hibernian had returned into the top half of the table on Sunday, thanks to a 1-0 win away to Motherwell. Eilidh Adams scored the only goal of the game for Hibs, six minutes into the second half.
 
Hearts produced a late fightback for their second league victory of the season, 2-1 against Forfar Farmington. Donna Paterson fired Forfar in front, eight minutes before half time, but goals in the last fifteen minutes from Lia Tweedie and Monica Forsyth turned the match around in Hearts' favour.
