Hibernian beat Forfar Farmington 3-0 to go into the mid-season break, just two points behind Glasgow City.
Forfar had the game’s first good chance, but their effort was well saved by Hibs’ keeper Jenna Fife.
But, in the 12th minute, Hibs took the lead. Rachel McLauchlan’s cross picked out Abigail Harrison whose header picked out the bottom corner.
McLauchlan nearly found herself on the scoresheet when she flicked Lizzie Arnot’s cross just wide.
Three minutes into the second half, Hibernian doubled their lead through another Harrison header.
And in the 68th minute, Harrison completed her hat-trick when a cut-back picked her out on the edge of the box and she scored with a superb finish.
The match was notable for Forfar Farmington’s Zoe Moreland making her debut late on, at the age of just 14.
