The international football break has taken precedence over the past week but there has been some action in the Scottish Women's Premier League, with two matches taking place in each division.
League leaders Hibernian were one of the teams who were not playing, as well as the three Glasgow teams who were directly below them, and this meant that the winners of the match between Aberdeen and Hamilton Academical would move into second place, level on points with the table toppers. It was Aberdeen who took the points with a 1-0 victory, given to them when Louise Brown curled home a delightful thirteenth minute shot from just inside the area. Brown also had another strike ruled out for offside whilst the Accies came closest after the break when Tara McGonigle was denied by Gail Gilmour.
The other top flight game saw newly promoted Partick Thistle play host to Motherwell, with both teams looking to get off the mark. Thistle went in front in the tenth minute as Jade Greenshields planted a shot into the far corner but Motherwell reacted to the early setback, Lori Gardner heading in the equaliser from point blank range and Kaela McDonald-Nguah firing them ahead going into the break. Cara McBrearty brought the scores level again, early in the second half via a neat finish, and after both teams had gone close, the game remained in the balance until two minutes from time, when Freya MacDonald latched onto a long ball and evaded a challenge before clipping her shot over Khym Ramsay to give Partick a 3-2 victory.
In SWPL 2, it was another good day for Dundee Utd as they notched up a third straight win, 3-1 against Queen's Park. With Boroughmuir Thistle and Glasgow Women not having a game, this means that United have opened up a three point lead at the top of the table.
Rachel Todd got the Tangerines off to a great start by scoring twice inside the opening 21 minutes. After the break, the Spiders fought back and Cara Anderson gave them hope when she pulled a goal back just after the hour but United were to seal the points with just three minutes left, when Alex Robson netted the third goal.
Kilmarnock meanwhile claimed their first points of the season by scoring seven times without reply past Stirling University. Goals in a five minute spell during the first half from Shelley Campbell and Monica Harty put Killie in a strong position which they never relinquished, with Kirsty O'Brien and Lisa Swanson also getting on the scoresheet ahead of the break. Harty netted her second goal, seven minutes after the restart, before Alex Middleton made it six and an own goal rounded off the scoring, six minutes from time.
