Glasgow City were in the middle of a busy week due to their involvement in the UEFA Women's Champions League but they have hit the ground running in SWPL 1 and opened up with a 6-0 victory over Motherwell.
Priscilla Chinchilla put them in front in the opening minute and they went on to add further goals through Claire Walsh, an Ode Fulutudilu brace, Taylor Fisher and Mairead Fulton.
Hibernian have made an encouraging start as they defeated local rivals Spartans 3-0. Alexa Coyle put Hibs in front from the penalty spot with five minutes on the clock and Colette Cavanagh made it two midway through the first half. Michaela McAlonie rounded off the scoring on the hour mark.
Celtic made the trip north to take on newly promoted Aberdeen and returned with a hard fought 4-2 victory under their belts. Charlie Wellings gave them a fifteenth minute lead and after a Kelly Clark own goal had levelled the scores, Chloe Craig put them back in front three minutes later. Wellings netted her second with nine minutes remaining and although Eilidh Shore gave the Dons renewed hope by pulling one back, Craig made the game safe through an injury time penalty.
Another promoted side, Hamilton Academical, got off to a winning start with a 2-1 success away to Hearts. Aimee Anderson had put Hearts in front eighteen minutes from time but Hannah Scott quickly equalised for the Accies from the penalty spot and Scott was to score her second goal in the dying minutes to give Hamilton the three points, following up to tuck home the rebound after her initial penalty - the Accies third of the game - had been saved by Charlotte Parker-Smith.
Dundee Utd narrowly missed out on promotion at the end of last season and they have started well this time around with a 5-1 victory against Stirling University. Cassie Cowper gave United a sixth minute lead and Erin Ross made it two, ten minutes later. Robyn Smith put her team further in control with goals either side of half time and after Jodie Malcolm had reduced the arrears for Stirling just before the hour, Danni McGinley completed the scoring for United.
Boroughmuir Thistle also had a good day as they defeated St Johnstone 4-1. Alix Hogg-Wilkinson opened the scoring with a penalty and Samantha Duncan added a second shortly before half time. Ellie Cowe gave St Johnstone hope as she pulled a goal back but this was short lived as Beth MacLeod responded for Boroughmuir a minute later and Elvie McLean scored a fourth goal in injury time.
Glasgow Women were the other winners on the day, edging out Kilmarnock by the odd goal in five in a see-saw game. Shivohn Honeyman gave Glasgow a first half lead which was cancelled out before the break by an Alex Middleton penalty, and then Killie went in front through Rebecca Galt in the opening minute of the second half. Kaitlyn Canavan levelled the scores again nine minutes later and Honeyman netted her second goal to settle matters in Glasgow's favour.
