Glasgow City are crowned Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League Champions for the eleventh successive season after defeating Hibernian 3-0 in Edinburgh.
City went into the game needing a win in order to secure the title and have not conceded a league goal since May. They came out all guns blazing and raced into a 3-0 lead at the break thanks to goals from Lauren McMurchie, Hayley Lauder and Abbi Grant.
Hibs looked stunned and needed to win to take the title to the last game, but all hope was lost when McMurchie fired past Jenna Fife after sixteen minutes. Two goals within a minute of each other less than ten minutes later from Lauder and Grant turned it into a comfortable afternoon for the Champions, whilst Hibs have to settle for the runners-up position once again.
The title showdown between Glasgow City and Hibernian meant that the third Old Firm meeting of the season was overshadowed but it turned out to be a happy day for Celtic as they defeated Rangers 5-1 to make sure of finishing in third place. Natalie Ross gave Celtic the lead from the penalty spot just before the half hour, with Rangers equalising a minute later through Lauren Davidson, but the Hoops were back in front on the stroke of half time thanks to Sarah Ewens. Ross and Ewens each netted a second goal after the break with Kirsty Howat rounding off the scoring.
Stirling University are still in with a great chance of a top half finish but Aberdeen are condemned to relegation after they were beaten 4-2 in their meeting. The Dons had given themselves an outside chance of beating the drop with victory seven days earlier and, after falling behind twice to Rachel Donaldson and Jade Gallon, hit back on each occasion through Jo Fraser and Hannah Stewart, but Gallon once again put Stirling in front with fifteen minutes remaining and this time, Eva Rule went on to score a fourth and end Aberdeen's hopes of staying up.
This result meant that Hamilton Academical had successfully managed to stay up in their first season after promotion. On Sunday they were beaten 3-0 at home by Spartans, who scored all of their goals in the first half through Laura Gavin, Simone McMahon and Elena Santoyo-Brown.
