The top five teams in SWPL 1 are covered by just a single point after Sunday's matches and Glasgow City are back on top of the table on goal difference after winning 3-1 at Hamilton Academical.
The Accies did take a thirteenth minute lead through Kirstie McIntosh but City hit back strongly to take the points, Jenna Clark and Clare Shine ensuring they led at the break and Aoife Colvill wrapped matters up with the third goal, early in the second half.
Hibernian had started the day as leaders but went down to their first defeat, beaten 2-1 by Celtic who are now second. All of the goals came in the final third of the game, Sarah Harkes giving Celtic a lead which was cancelled out by Colette Cavanagh, but Charlie Wellings hit an injury time winner for Celtic, to hand them a second win in three games.
A win would have seen Aberdeen take over as leaders but instead they are in third, level on points with the top two, after their meeting with Spartans ended goalless. The point means that Spartans stay in a mid-table position but are only three points off the pace.
Rangers are now the only team left with a 100% record in the league and are in fourth following their 3-0 victory away to Hearts, one point adrift of the top three but with a game in hand. Lizzie Arnot gave Rangers the lead during the first half and after Nicola Docherty had made it two midway through the second half, Brianna Westrup rounded off the scoring with five minutes remaining.
The four matches in the top flight on Sunday produced a total of ten goals but they were a lot scarcer in SWPL 2, where the three games yielded only three goals.
Dundee Utd hold on to the leadership and stay three points ahead after battling out a goalless draw with Glasgow Women. A win would have taken Glasgow level on points with United but the result means they stay in third place, three points behind their opponents.
Things were just as tight for second placed Boroughmuir Thistle as their meeting with Stirling University also finished 0-0. Boroughmuir therefore stay three points adrift of leaders Dundee Utd but the result was a significant one for Stirling, who picked up their first point of the season and moved off the bottom of the table.
The only match in the division that did see some goals was at St Johnstone, where the home side won 2-1 against Queen's Park. Both teams went into the game seeking their first points of the season, having lost their opening two games, and it was goals from Laura Wight and Morgan Steedman which settled the match in St Johnstone's favour, after Demi Potts had equalised for the Spiders early in the second half.
