Scottish Women’s Premier League

With four games of the season left to play, Celtic and Rangers sit level on points at the top of SWPL 1 and the teams are set to meet in what could be a title showdown at the Broadwood Stadium on Monday.

Celtic were first in action on Wednesday night as they played host to Glasgow City and they battled out a 2-2 draw with the reigning Champions. Hayley Lauder gave third placed City a fourth minute lead but Celtic were soon back level with a rather fortuitous goal, Natasha Flint’s initial shot striking the post before going back in the net off the unfortunate Lee Gibson. Caitlin Hayes then put Celtic ahead for the first time but after the break, it was City’s turn to hit back and substitute Charlotte Wardlaw earned them a share of the spoils.

This gave Rangers the chance to draw level on points with Celtic if they could win at home to Hearts and they duly took the chance with a 3-0 victory. Chelsea Cornet opened the scoring midway through the first half and Jo Potter’s side went on to secure the points with further strikes in the last fifteen minutes from Lizzie Arnot and Libby Bance.

Despite their defeat, Hearts’ chances of a top four finish were actually increased after Hibernian went down to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Partick Thistle. A Megan Cunningham own goal had put Hibs ahead but a minute later, Thistle were level again thanks to Carla Boyce. Imogen Longcake then gave Partick the lead for the first time, midway through the second half, and Boyce netted her second four minutes later and this was to give her side victory, despite Jorian Baucom pulling one back for Hibernian in injury time.

Motherwell meanwhile kept their chances of finishing on top of the bottom half alive when they defeated Spartans 4-2. Two penalties from Laura Berry helped ‘Well on their way to victory and she was joined on the scoresheet by Louisa Boyes and Kayla Jardine, whilst Spartans’ replies came from Hannah Jordan and Alana Marshall.
