Howat's that? Leaders City tighten grip

Scottish WPL News - Howat's that? Leaders City tighten grip - 8 Aug 2019 - Women's Football NewsOn the day the league resumed following its mid-season break, Glasgow City cemented their place at the top of the Scottish Building Society Premier League with a 2-1 win over Hibernian, thanks to two first half goals from Kirsty Howat.
 
City went into the match five points in the League clear of Hibs in second and, with a strong crowd at Petershill Park, had the game in their command at the break, with Kirsty Howat proving prolific in front of goal. The City forward expertly netted after only eight minutes and then doubled her side's advantage on the half hour mark.
 
A second yellow for Hibs defender Siobhan Hunter midway through the second half didn't help the visitors, but they managed to get a goal back with nine minutes remaining when Jamie-Lee Napier broke through on goal to shoot past Lee Alexander in the City goal. Howat almost completed her hat-trick but struck the bar with minutes remaining and in the end, City managed the game out for a very important three points.
 
Celtic have moved above Hibernian and into second place after winning 3-1 against Rangers in their Old Firm clash. Kathleen McGovern and Sarah Ewens put Celtic ahead inside the opening quarter of the game and Kelly Clark added the third early in the second half, before Brogan Hay netted a consolation goal for fourth placed Rangers.
 
The other two games in SWPL 1 both ended in honours even, and neither produced a goal. Spartans remain two points ahead of Motherwell in fifth after their meeting ended goalless, whilst the basement clash between Forfar Farmington and Stirling University also finished 0-0, meaning that Stirling remain three points behind Forfar and in the relegation zone.
