Hibernian’s 5-0 win over Hamilton Academical put them level on points and goal-difference with Glasgow City but their greater goals tally saw them go top of the SBS Scottish Women’s Premier League.

After a goalless first half hour, Hibs struck three times in 4 minutes but not without some assistance from hosts Hamilton.

Abi Harrison’s whipped cross was deflected in by an Accies defender and moments later a second defensive interception ended up with a similar outcome.

Kirsten Reilly then picked up the ball up on the edge of the box and rifled a shot into the bottom corner.

Rachel McLauchlan scored on the hour at the second attempt and chipped in her second 14 minutes later.

The rest of the SWPL teams return to action next Sunday, 5 August.
