Aberdeen jumped four places to fifth in the Park’s Motor Group Scottish Women’s Premier League, while the top three all won again.

SWPL 1

Partick Thistle 0-2 Glasgow City
Celtic 7-0 Motherwell
Spartans 2-5 Rangers
Hamilton Academical 1-2 Aberdeen

Aberdeen won 2-1 at Hamilton Academical to go from next to bottom to fifth in the table. Bayley Hutchinson bagged a brace for the Dons, Josephine Giard later replying for the Accies.

Rangers remain two points ahead in the title race after a 5-2 victory at Spartans, where Lizzie Arnot and Samantha  Kerr scored in either half and Brogan Hay got their other goal. Becky Galbraith pulled two back for the hosts, one a deflected effort, the second a penalty.

Glasgow City came through 2-0 at Partick Thistle, Jenna Clark opening the scoring before the half-hour with a header from Hayley Lauder’s corner. It wasn’t until the 85th minute that the points were sewn up, Aoife Colvill’s effort going in off the post from an Agata Filipa cross.

Celtic sank Motherwell 7-0, Shen Mengyu, Olivia Chance and an Chloe Craig penalty giving them a 3-0 interval lead, before a deflected Sarah Harkes strike, plus goals by Jacynta Galabadaarachchi, Clarissa Larisey and Charlie Wellings saw them ease to victory.
