Ogilvie hits second-half hat-trick for Dons

Aberdeen maintained their eight-point lead at the top with a 3-0 victory at Queen’s Park, Francesca Ogilvie getting all the goals including two penalties.

Ogilvie’s opener from 30 yards hit the roof of the net, substitutes Johan Fraser and Lauren Gordon both won late spot-kicks which Ogilvie converted.

Accies deliver from set-pieces

Hamilton Academical also had to wait until after the interval for their breakthrough, as they went on to record a 2-0 win at Glasgow WFC.

Kathleen McGovern headed home a corner from Ellie Kane, Lauren Evans later doubling the advantage with another header from a set-piece.

Jags see off St Johnstone

Partick Thistle stayed third on goal-difference after coming away from St Johnstone 3-1 winners, all the goals scored in the first 32 minutes.

Clare Docherty had the Jags in front but the hosts hit back through Amy Henderson’s header with just seven minutes played

Cara McBrearty’s free kick was nodded in by Cheryl McCulloch, Jade Gallon later drilling home to complete the scoring.

Ross nets swift treble for five-goal Dundee

Dundee United stayed a point behind Partick in fourth despite a 5-1 success at Stirling University, where Laurie Ross recorded a 15-minute hat-trick.

Danni McGinley struck first and Ross then notched her hat-trick all before the break.

McGinley was on target again midway through the second half, with Stirling getting a late consolation.

Killie comeback

Kilmarnock are level on points with Queen’s Park in seventh after sending Boroughmuir Thistle to a 3-1 defeat.

Killie did have to recover from a very early own-goal though, Shelley Campbell doing so from 35 yards.

Alex Middleton put them in front after Lisa Swanson’s free kick was parried, Thistle were denied a leveller by the bar, before Abby Robinson gave Killie a two-goal cushion.
