Partick Thistle went second in the SBS Scottish Women’s Premier League 2 after Hamilton Academical lost at home to St Johnstone.

SWPL 2 results – 13 June:

Boroughmuir Thistle 1-1 Stirling University
Partick Thistle 2-0 Kilmarnock
Hamilton Academical 0-1 St Johnstone
Dundee United 3-1 Queens Park

Partick Thistle were 2-0 winners against Kilmarnock in a match which brought a red card for both teams. Eleanor Smith put the Jags ahead via a corner but 10 minutes after the interval they had Freya MacDonald sent off. Despite this set back, they doubled the advantage midway through the half with a Clare Docherty goal, before Killie’s Lisa Swanson received a second caution late on.

Hamilton Academical dropped two places after going down 1-0 at home to St Johnstone. Rachel Todd got the only in the first half for an impressive win, ahead of the Saints hosting leaders Aberdeen this midweeek.

Dundee United defeated Queen’s Park 3-1 with Robyn Smith at the double, moving them up to third place. Smith scored 15 minutes in and got her second five minutes from time. Although the Spiders replied, Danni McGinley made sure of the points with a late third.

Fiona Gibson gave Boroughmuir Thistle a second-half lead in the basement battle with Stirling University but the visitors earned just a second point of the season from a 74th-minute corner.

Aberdeen’s scheduled match with Glasgow Women was postponed due to international call-ups.
