Aberdeen's six-match winning run at the top of SWPL 2 was brought to a sudden halt as they crashed to a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Partick Thistle, who move up to second place as a result.
Eilidh Shore put Aberdeen in front midway through the first half but after Jade Gallon equalised a minute before the break, Thistle ran riot in the second half. Goals in quick succession from Clare Docherty and Sophie Gallacher put them in command, with Cheryl Hogg making it four on the hour and Teigan McCann rounding off the scoring late on.
The Dons' lead at the top has been trimmed to five points, with Partick in second on goal difference from Queen's Park, who were held to a 3-3 draw by Stirling University. The home side had lost their opening six matches of the season but raced into a two-goal lead inside eighteen matches thanks to Ann Taylor and Shana MacPhail. Helen McLeod and Chloe Docherty both struck to bring the Spiders level after the break but Stirling looked to have taken the points when MacPhail restored their lead with five minutes remaining. Queen's Park then hit back in injury time to grab a share of the spoils when McLeod netted her second goal.
Hamilton Academical lost ground when they were beaten 2-1 by Dundee Utd, who climb above them in the table and into fourth place. First half goals from Robyn Smith and Stina Kleppe gave United the points on the day, despite Lauren Evans pulling one back for the Accies after the interval.
Kilmarnock meanwhile moved to within a single point of Glasgow Women after winning their meeting 1-0. The only goal of the game came early on, Kirsty Munro scoring what proved to be the decisive strike after just seven minutes.
Boroughmuir Thistle recorded their second league victory of the season, 3-2 against St Johnstone. Rachel Todd gave St Johnstone a sixteenth minute lead but Boroughmuir responded with goals either side of half time from Samantha Duncan, before an own goal increased their advantage. Nicole Carter reduced the arrears on the hour but Thistle held on for three important points and narrow the gap on their opponents.
