Rossvale and Renfrew close the gap after Livingston held by Morton
Rossvale and Renfrew have closed the gap at the top of the SWF Championship table after leaders Livingston were held to a draw by bottom side Morton.
After patient possession play by the hosts, Morton’s top scorer Jacqui Seagrave stepped inside and scored from distance to level in the 83rd minute. The Greenock side could have snatched all three points if a Darroch free kick hadn’t been expertly held by the Livi keeper in injury time.
Rossvale held on against a spirited Hutchie Vale in Glasgow to claim the points in a 3-2 thriller, while Renfrew Ladies responded strongly to last Sunday’s heavy defeat in West Lothian with a strong 3-0 victory over in-form Dryburgh Athletic.
Ayr United continued their recent momentum to come from behind and beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 at home to consolidate their place in the top half of the table.
In SWF League One, leaders FC Edinburgh needed a last-minute winner from Nic Rutherford after being held for 90 minutes by Dundee West. Rutherford had opened the scoring but the hosts equalised through Sonia Tolosa in the first half, which set up a nervy second half that looked certain to end in stalemate.
Falkirk ground out a vital victory against promotion rivals Westdyke, Iona Bridges setting up Kirsty Gilbert who made no mistake for the only goal of the game. Stenhousemuir also triumphed over a rival from the northeast, an assured second-half display earning them a 4-1 victory over Grampian Ladies.
St Mirren maintained the gap between the top and bottom halves of the League One table thanks to a late winner from captain Karen McCabe over an Airdrie Ladies side who had opened the scoring, but Edinburgh Caledonia’s momentum in seventh gathered apace with a dominant 11-1 demotion of Gleniffer Thistle. Giffnock beat BSC Glasgow 2-1 in the early kick off.
In the Biffa SWFL regional leagues, East leaders Central Girls required a penalty to earn a point against Dunfermline Athletic, while North leaders Forfar Farmington won a commanding 11-1 victory over Westdyke Thistle. Unbeaten Glenrothes Strollers remain second with a 2-0 defeat of Stonehaven.
West leaders Harmony Row ran out 5-0 winners over Bishopton, and in South, Annan Athletic returned to winning ways with a 6-3 victory over Clark Drive, while leaders Queen of the South put 16 goals past Nithsdale Wanderers.
