Second-placed Hamilton shared four goals with St Johnstone, who sit fourth but with games in hand on everyone else. The Accies twice led through Amy Anderson and Megan Quigley but Rachel Todd and then Fern Newbigging’s late free-kick pulled the visitors level.
Queen’s Park came from behind to defeat Dundee United 3-1 and go third. Robyn Smith’s goal saw United lead at half-time but Louisa Boyes equalised at the start on the second half, Chloe Docherty and Samantha McManus getting one each in the last 10 minutes to secure all three points.
Partick Thistle climbed into the top half with a 2-1 result at Kilmarnock, also achieved after going behind. Killie took a 66th-minute lead but that was cancelled out before Jade Gallon’s decider with six minutes left.
Boroughmuir Thistle got off the mark with both goals of the game at Stirling University. Hannah Davie headed in on 11 minutes and Helen Templeton doubled the lead in the second half.
