Glasgow City and Rangers both hit six goals in the Park’s Motor Group Scottish Women’s Premier League title race.

SWPL 1

Aberdeen 0-3 Celtic
Glasgow City 6-0 Motherwell
Hearts 1-1 Hamilton Academical
Rangers 6-1 Partick Thistle
Spartans 2-0 Hibernian

Glasgow City hit Motherwell for six to stay top, Lauren Davidson and Priscila Chinchilla each on target twice, the latter with two spectacular strikes from outside the box.

Rangers also put six past Partick to hold a strong position with games in hand. Thistle did score first through Linzi Taylor but Kayla McCoy replied with a hat-trick and Lizzie Arnot got a couple.

Celtic sank hosts Aberdeen 3-0, Charlie Wellings setting them on their way with her 25th goal of the season just eight minutes in. Jacynta Galabadaarachchi fired over keeper Aaliyah-Jay Meach on the turn to double the lead after the break and Tegan Bowie added a last-minute third.

Spartans went fifth after a local derby defeat of Hibernian, Becky Galbraith scoring with a powerful strike just before half time and then a header from Alana Marshall’s corner on 63 minutes.

Hearts were held by basement side Hamilton, a goal each coming in the first half hour. Maria McAneny’s reverse pass saw Aimee Anderson blast Hearts ahead, Lauren Evans levelled from a Kirstie McIntosh corner for Accies.

Dundee United had to come from behind late on for a 3-1 win over Queen’s Park in the meeting of top and bottom teams. The Spiders threatened to spring a surprise result as Rachel Connor got the opening goal but United hit back through Jade McLaren and Tammy Harkin’s brace in the last ten minutes.

Second beat third as Glasgow Women won 2-1 at Boroughmuir, Sophie McGoldrick netting twice, her second ten mintes from time and soon after Thistle’s Alix Wilkinson had equalised from the spot.

Kilmarnock sent Stirling to a 4-0 loss with one apiece from Laura McLaughlin, Amy Burrows, Lisa Swanson and Aimie Docherty
