Rangers return with five-goal victory

The season resumed on Sunday following the break for the holiday period and Rangers picked up the baton once again and preserved their two point lead at the top of  SWPL 1 by winning 5-0 away to Hearts. Demi Vance gave them the lead after fourteen minutes, before Jane Ross added a brace to see them three goals ahead at half time. Lizzie Arnot made it four after the break and Chelsea Cornet rounded off the scoring with nine minutes remaining.

Glasgow City ensured that they stay just behind Rangers but needed a late strike in their 1-0 victory over Hamilton Academical. Jennifer Currie had a fine match in goal and pulled off a string of saves as the Accies dug in and looked like picking up a valuable point but with three minutes left, substitute Kerry Beattie marked her league debut for City by firing home the only goal of the game.

There was also late drama at Hibernian where the home side shared a 1-1 draw with third placed Celtic. After Emily Mutch had saved a first half penalty from Chloe Craig, Charlie Wellings gave Celtic the lead just before half time but her side were to lose some ground on the top two as Hibs grabbed a late equaliser through Ellis Notley.

Spartans meanwhile produced the comeback of the day in their 3-2 win away to Aberdeen. Francesca Ogilvie gave Aberdeen the lead with a penalty just before the half hour and she netted a second early in the second half. Caley Gibb pulled a goal back for Spartans on the hour and Rebecca Galbraith levelled matters two minutes later, the fightback being finished off when Galbraith completed her double, all three Spartans goals having been created by substitute Alana Marshall.

Motherwell and Partick Thistle met for the second week running, this time in the league, and once again they finished level at 2-2. Cara McBrearty opened the scoring for Partick in the first half, with Amy Anderson ensuring the scores were level at the break. Kaela McDonald-Nguah then put Motherwell ahead for the first time and this time it was Thistle who were to hit back, Clare Docherty earning them a share of the spoils with twenty minutes remaining.

Two matches were played in SWPL 2, with leaders Dundee Utd maintaining their nine point advantage by winning 4-1 away to St Johnstone. Danni McGinley gave United a sixteenth minute lead and after an own goal had levelled the scores, Neve Guthrie put them back in front just before half time. Megan Burns then made it three, five minutes into the second half, and Guthrie rounded off the scoring with her second goal late on.

Second placed Glasgow Women got back to winning ways with an 8-1 victory against Stirling University. The visitors did take the lead in the third minute through Rebecca Robertson but two goals in three minutes from Kaitlyn Canavan and Cara Henderson turned matters around in Glasgow’s favour, with Louisa Boyes adding a third ahead of half time. Canavan extended their lead in the opening minute of the second half and she completed her hat-trick at the midway point. Lucy Ronald, Hannah Cunningham and Mhairi Lyle all added further goals in the final quarter of the game to seal their side’s biggest win of the season to date.
