Celtic stretched their lead even further at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League with a 3-0 victory away to Boroughmuir Thistle.
For the third match in succession, it was Joanne Love who gave the Hoops the lead with a strike from midfield and Lauren MacMillan added a second before half time. Christie Murray rounded off the scoring with a looping header, seven minutes from time to seal a victory which takes Celtic nine points clear at the top, due to Glasgow City and Spartans both having their matches postponed.
Hibernian have moved up into second place, their highest position of the season to date, as they won
4-3 away to FC Kilmarnock. Hibs went into the game without injured goalkeeper Gemma Fay but they started well with Suzanne Grant giving them the lead in the opening minutes. Early in the second half, Laura Ferguson levelled before Grant scored her second goal, but Killie fought back once again and equalised through a powerful strike from Amy MacDonald. Substitute Mandy Burns then put Hibs ahead for a third time but back came Kilmarnock once more, Kirsty Munro bringing them level again. However Hibs were to have the final say and they took all three points as Kirsty McBride scored a vital winning goal.
At the other end of the table, Hamilton Academicals claimed a crucial 2-1 win against Forfar Farmington which lifts them off the bottom. Following a goalless first half, it was Forfar who broke the deadlock just after the hour mark through a 40-yard shot from Kim Thomson. Hamilton then fought back and two goals in the last eleven minutes from Pamela Liddell gave them three precious points.
