After a seven-goal blast in midweek to take them top of SWPL 1, Rangers went one better on Sunday when they ran out 8-0 winners over Aberdeen.
Kayla McCoy netted a first half brace and went on to complete her hat-trick after the break, and she was joinde on the scoresheet by Lizzie Arnot, who bagged a brace, Kirsten Reilly, Chelsea Cornet and Jane Ross.
Rangers have a two point lead over the two teams below them, headed by Glasgow City who notched up a 2-0 victory away to Hearts. Aoife Colvill opened the scoring for City after ten minues and Hayley Lauder added the second goal ahead of the interval.
Celtic kept themselves nicely in touch as they scored six times without reply at Hamilton Academical. Six different players got on the scoresheet for the Hoops, Jacynta Galabadaarachchi opening the scoring after four minutes and Kathleen McGovern made it two, before Charlie Wellings and Cheyenne Shorts added further goals on the stroke of half time. After the break, Caitlin Hayes and Olivia Chance rounded off the scoring for Celtic who are still two points off the pace.
Partick Thistle are off the bottom and into mid-table with a fine 3-2 win against fourth placed Hibernian. Siobhan Hunter put Hibs in front but after the break, Thistle hit back strongly with three goals in a thirteen minute spell, Amy Bulloch equalising from the penalty spot before Rebecca McGowan and Bulloch put them in control of the game. Colette Cavanagh did pull a goal back for Hibs but Partick held on for one of their biggest ever victories.
The two teams immediately below Partick in the table are Spartans and Motherwell who meeting finished in a goalless draw. For Spartans, the point and clean sheet were both welcome after two big defeats and Motherwell were able to build on their first victory seven days earlier.
With Glasgow Women not having a game, Dundee Utd took the chance to open up a lead of three points at the top of SWPL 2 after they won 2-1 away to Boroughmuir Thistle. Elvie McLean did give Boroughmuir the lead from the penalty spot, midway through the first half, but Jade McLaren brought United back on level terms before the break and with twelve minutes to go, Chloe Clemison scored to give her side a fourth win in five matches.
Kilmarnock have climbed above Boroughmuir and into third place, thanks to a 4-2 victory away to St Johnstone. Lisa Swanson and Kirsty O'Brien put Killie two goals ahead inside the opening quarter hour and after Ellie Cowie pulled one back after the interval, Georgia Crooks restored the two-goal advantage five minutes later. Morgan Steedman gave St Johnstone renewed hope as she reduced the arrears again by the hour but after the game was in the balance for a while, O'Brien scored her second goal late on to seal a hard earned win for Kilmarnock.
Stirling University claimed their first victory of the season and completed a trio of away wins in the division when they beat Queen's Park 2-0. Rebecca Roberston gave Stirling the lead shortly after half time and Iris Ramage made the game safe with seventeen minutes remaining when she scored the second.
