Glasgow City Hammer Hibs

City 8 Hibs 0

Hibernian's 100% record came to an abrupt end with an 8-0 drubbing by Glasgow City. Both teams were defending 100% league records and a large crowd at Petershill gathered to watch the clash of the top two. But Glasgow City set the tone with an early goal as Leanne Ross beat two players before playing in Christie Murray who fired home from 25 yards.

Shannon Lynn made some outstanding saves and it was 5 minutes before half time that City got the second, Emma Fernon's corner met by Elish McSorley with a spectacular overhead kick.  Lisa Evans made it 3-0 two minutes after the restart as her cross evaded Lynn on the strong wind. Ten minutes later, Leanne Ross beat the offside trap and lobbed the Hibs keeper. Less than 60 seconds later and City were 5-0 ahead. Emma Mitchell received a pass from Christie Murray who hit a low left foot drive into the bottom corner.

With just over ten minutes remaining, Evans rounded the keeper and set up Kat Lindner for a simple finish. Murray juggled the ball in the box before brilliantly lobbing the defence to release Evans, who cooly slotted past the Hibernian keeper. Evans then again took the ball around Lynn and played in Leanne Ross to complete a commanding City performance.

Commenting on the match, City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said, “We are obviously really delighted with the result. Even more pleasing was the performance, considering the conditions and the standard of the opposition. We remained true to ourselves and we continued to play our way. When we have an edge to our game and we play with the intensity that we can, we are a really competitive side. I am delighted for the girls and for them to see the benefits of all of the hard work they have put in.”

Celtic missed the chance to make up ground on Hibs, going down to a Kelly Clark goal at Forfar Farmington.

Spartans slipped to fifth after Hutchison got off the mark with a 1-1 draw, Michelle Russell netting for Vale, Claire Crosbie on target for the visitors.

Inverness won 3-2 at Falkirk to register a first three points, Natalie Bodium, Kim Jappy and Zoe Johnstone their scorers, although they did concede two own-goals.

Hamilton were 4-0 winners at basement side Kilmarnock, a Gill Inglis brace added to by Toni Mason and Cheryl McCulloch.
