City and Celtic take it to the wire
 Women's Football Scottish WPL News - 2 Jun 2021
 
The Scottish Women's Premier League title race will go down to the last day of the season and Glasgow City will be in pole position and one point away from yet another Championship.
 
City brought themselves to the brink of being crowned Champions by winning 6-2 away to Spartans in the final match of the penultimate round of fixtures. City were out of the blocks very quickly and took a third minute lead through Ode Fulutudilu, with Hayley Lauder sweeping in the second on the quarter hour. Niamh Farrelly and Priscilla Chinchilla then added further goals to leave their side four goals ahead at the break. Katie Reilly reduced the arrears for Spartans during the second half, scoring via a header with her first touch of the ball after coming on as a substitute, but City reacted quickly with Aoife Colvill restoring the four-goal advantage just two minutes later. Spartans continued to fight and, moments after having hit the post, Rebecca Galbraith scored a second goal for the Edinburgh side, but City were to have the final say and Sharon Wojcik rounded off the scoring late on.
 
The win actually returned Glasgow City to the top of the table after they had momentarily been dislodged by Celtic, who had scored ten times without reply against Forfar Farmington. Celtic are clearly not giving up the fight and Sarah Ewens, who has been in superb form for the Hoops in recent weeks, gave them the lead through a well taken goal after four minutes. An unfortunate own goal by Alana Bruce doubled Celtic's lead and they went on to add further goals ahead of half time from Chloe Craig, Mariah Lee and Anna Filbey. With goal difference still a possible factor before the end of the season, Celtic continued to push for further goals during the second half with Ewens and Lee both scoring their second, before Craig completed her own double from the penalty spot. Filbey then became a fourth player to find the net for a second time and with five minutes remaining, Ewens headed in her hat-trick goal and a tenth on the day for Celtic.
 
Rangers can on longer win the league but still have a hope of a Champions League spot as they defeated Motherwell 6-0. Nicola Docherty's cross-cum-shot gave them an early lead, with Kirsten Reilly and Rachel McLauchlan joining her on the scoresheet before half time. Zoe Ness headed in a fourth after the break, with a Jordan McLintock own goal and Clare Gemmell finishing off the scoring.
 
Hibernian rekindled their hopes of a top half finish as they won 2-0 away to Hearts. Eilidh Adams slotted in the opening goal in the seventeenth minute and after an inspired goalkeeping display from Charlotte Parker-Smith kept Hearts in the game, Amy Muir broke their resistance with the second goal.
