Despite two penalty saves by Glasgow City’s Lee Gibson, Celtic became the first team to beat the leaders in the league this season, moving within five points of them. Natalie Ross and Natasha Flint had the visitors two up and although Priscila Chinchilla replied, Caitlin Hayes made it 3-1. Gibson denied both Chloe Craig and Flint from the spot after the latter had got her second goal, Hayley Lauder then pulling one back.

Rangers netted five at Partick Thistle, where Sam Kerr hit a hat-trick with Kirsty Howat and Kirsty MacLean also on target.
