Hibs hit Hoops

Hibernian will host Glasgow Girls in the SSE Scottish Cup quarter-finals next Sunday after thrashing Celtic 5-0.

Abi Harrison sent a looping header over keeper Megan Cunningham to put Hibs 1-0 up and Joelle Murray doubled the lead when curling home a free kick.

In a four-minute spell leading up to the break, Murray headed in the third and Harrison volleyed against the bar, before a break ended with the latter also scoring again.

Moments after the restart, Lisa Robertson completed the scoring with a header.

Glasgow go top

Glasgow City replaced Hibs as SWPL 1 leaders after their 3-0 victory over Hamilton Academical.

City took only 3 minutes to score, as a Katie McCabe cross was hit in by Lauren McMurchie, with the aid of a deflection.

McMurchie got her second on 21 minutes, turning in a Leanne Ross delivery at the back post.

Abbi Grant hit the Celtic woodwork after the interval but Ross added the third from a penalty.

Late drama at Stirling

Stirling University slip to fourth on goal-difference after being held 1-1 by Rangers.

Goalless going into the last minute, Stirling seemed to have won it when Nicole Pullar scored but Lauren Davidson responded with a last-minute equaliser.

Spartans go third

Spartans climbed into third place after a 2-1 victory away at basement side Aberdeen.

Leading 1-0 at half-time, Alana Marshall doubled the visitors advantage on 51 minutes, with the Dons pulling a goal back in the dying minutes.

Forfar move 8 points clear

Third-placed Glasgow Girls took on SWPL 2 leaders Forfar Farmington but slipped to a 1-0 loss. Danni McGinley latched onto a long ball to slot home 6 minutes before the break, as the title favourites extended their lead.

Second-placed Motherwell dropped points at basement side East Fife, where they were held 1-1. Suzanne Grant got their goal, Kerry Dickson scored for the underdogs, assisted by Isla Brown on her first team competitive debut aged only 14, while the much more experienced Suzanne Grant netted at the other end

Jeanfield Swifts hosted Hearts in a mid-table meet and their 3-1 result saw them leapfrog their visitors into fourth spot. Laura Dunn converted a penalty and Eilidh McIntyre made it 2-0, with Ashley Carse halving the deficit but Ellie Cowie quickly restoring the two-goal cushion.

Buchan went down 3-1 at home to Edinburgh Unversity Hutchison Vale. Anna Hume, Leanne Forker and Beth MacLeod had Vale three up at the interval, with the hosts later getting a consolation.
