Hibs were 4-0 winners at Motherwell with two goals in each half. Rachael Boyle scored direct from a free kick, Kirsty Morrison, Carla Boyce and Amy Muir adding one apiece.

Rangers kicked off with a 7-0 sinking of Hamilton, Jane Ross getting the ball rolling from 25 yards on the way to a 30-minute hat-trick and Lizzie Arnot also netting before half-time. Ross added her fourth, before Demi Vance head home at the back post and Zoe Ness completed the scoring.

Aberdeen’s first win back in the top flight came 2-0 at Partick. Eva Thomson broke the deadlock early in the second half, with Mya Christie making sure of the win in stoppage-time.

Spartans were the only hosts to take maximum points and this after trailing Hearts at half-time. Claire Delworth’s opener was cancelled out by Becky Galbraith, with Kat Smart and Alana Marshall also finding the net for Spartans.
