It was a good day for Celtic as they opened up a lead of eight points at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League with an impressive 8-0 victory over FC Kilmarnock.
The Hoops never looked back after Joanne Love volleyed them into the lead and further goals before half time came from Lauren MacMillan and Becky Stokes. After the break, MacMillan went on to complete a hat-trick and she was joined on the scoresheet by Pauline Hamill, Christie Murray and Jennifer Beattie.
There was further good news for Celtic as their two main rivals for the title, Spartans and Glasgow City, battled out a 1-1 draw as they faced each other. In a repeat of the Premier League Cup Final from the previous weekend, Glasgow looked to be on their way to another victory as Ruesha Littlejohn put them in front with ten minutes remaining but Spartans hit back to earn themselves a share of the spoils through a neat lob from Debbie McWhinnie.
Hibernian kept up their recent good form as they ran out 8-0 winners over Raith Rovers to keep themselves in third place. Laura Kennedy led the scoring with a hat-trick with Joelle Murray, Mandy Burns, Kirsty McBride, Suzanne Grant and Lisa Robertson all contributing a goal for Hibs who are dragging themselves back into the race.
Honours were even in the other two SWPL matches played on Sunday. Aberdeen and Hamilton Academicals finished level at 2-2 whilst Forfar Farmington and Dundee Utd SC shared six goals. Caren Webster gave Forfar a tenth minute lead but United were quickly on level terms through Laura Boag. Webster then produced a sweet left foot volley to put Forfar back in front ahead of the interval. Boag equalised on the hour mark before completing her hat-trick seven minutes later to put United ahead for the first time, but Forfar responded well and earned themselves a point when Tracy Brogan scored from close range.
This Sunday, league leaders Celtic make the trip to Boroughmuir Thistle whilst second placed Spartans are away to Dundee Utd SC. All of the top four are in fact on their travels this weekend, Hibernian go to FC Kilmarnock and Glasgow City visit Raith Rovers. Hamilton Academicals play host to Forfar Farmington in an important match at the other end of the table.
