The battle at the top of the SBS Scottish Women's Premier League SWPL 1 hotted up as all three protagonists in the title race recorded victories.
Reigning champions Glasgow City made it eleven wins out of twelve when they triumphed 4-0 away to Hearts. City stormed into a two-goal lead inside the opening eight minutes, courtesy of Priscilla Chinchilla and Cailin Michie, and they went on to make sure of the points with further goals after the break from Julia Molin and Joanne Love.
Rangers stay three points behind City after scoring eleven times without reply against Forfar Farmington. The visitors may well have caught the backlash following Rangers' defeat in midweek and found themselves two behind after ten minutes, Lizzie Arnot and Zoe Ness were on target. Samantha Kerr and Brogan Hay each netted doubles ahead of the break, with Arnot also completing her double. Ness scored her second goal, early in the second half, before Kerr completed her hat-trick. Sonia O'Neill joined them on the scoresheet and an own goal completed the tally.
Celtic meanwhile overcame a first half scare to maintain their challenge with a 3-1 victory against Hibernian. Amy Gallacher gave Hibs the lead midway through the first half, with Celtic getting back on level terms on the stroke of half time through Kate Nicolson. Chloe Craig put Celtic ahead for the first time, from the penalty spot, early in the second half and Sarah Ewens sealed the victory with the third goal, just ahead of the hour mark.
Spartans completed a good day for the top four as they also won 3-1 against Motherwell, which sees them move six points ahead of fifth placed Hibernian. Sarah Clelland put Spartans ahead in the eleventh minute and after Nicole Pullar had equalised for the Women of Steel, Spartans went back in front five minutes later through Rebecca Galbraith. Substitute Michaela McAlonie wrapped up the win for the Edinburgh side with the third goal, midway through the second half.
