SWPL Videos: Today’s Goals as Celtic come back from early setback to beat Hibs 3-1

Hibs take the lead through Amy Gallacher from a free-kick. And what a goal it was! How could Celtic respond?

Hibs looked to make it to the interval with their hard-fought lead intact and they almost made it until this happened in first half stoppage time…

“Celtic equalise before the break! A wonderful ball is floated in by Robertson to Kate Nicolson’s feet, who controls well, turns and drills her shot through the busy area and into the side netting for her first senior goal! Come on the Celts!” Celtic FC Women reported.

So it was all square at 1-1 at the break but Celtic, buoyed by the equaliser from. were the hungrier side in the second half and it’s from the spot that Celtic go in front…

With 52 minutes played it’s a Penalty to Celtic! A great ball from Robertson picks up Lee on the flank, who drives at Boyle and releases a shot into the box, but the ref gives a handball. (stonewaller). Here’s what happened with Chloe Craig on spot-kick duties for Celtic.  Not the best effort but it went in!

And then it was 3-1 to Celtic and the points were effectively secure…just five minutes after taking the lead Celtic scored again  and what a finish!  Brilliant strength and feet from ‘Skelper Lee lets her turn Boyle on the byline and pass a low cross along the front of goal for Sarah Ewens to score a wonderful striker’s goal.

to blast into the roof of the net!


And after 3 minutes of stoppage time it’s all over and Celtic have the 3 points. In the other games leaders Glasgow City won away comfortably at Hearts and theRangers took their midweek defeat against Celtic out on Forfar Farmington with an incredible 11-0 win. So it’s as you were at the top of the SWPL with Glasgow City three points ahead of theRangers and Celtic two points further behind. Crucially though the two leaders have to play each other twice while Celtic only have to play each of them once.

Well done to Fran Alonso’s side – Glasgow City and theRangers are still looking over their shoulders but Celtic are NOT going away. Now why don’t the club back the ghirls and move all remaining games to Celtic Park?
