celtic 1-2 hibs

Third hosted second, and once again, the game was exciting until the closing moment.

Hibernian took the lead through Lizzie Arnot whose shot/cross went in off the far post. Their lead though only lasted six minutes, when a lovely team move from Celtic saw them dissect the Hibs’ defence and Suzanne Mulvey converted.

They could have taken the lead, but Kirsty Howat shot just wide.

Hibs had a couple of chances, with Sarah Ewens’ header saved by Celtic’s keeper and Lucy Graham’s long-range lob just going over the crossbar.

Late on, there was a delay as Siobhan Hunter suffered a head injury and had to be replaced by Emma Brownlie.

But it looked like Celtic would take points off either of the top two sides until Brownlie’s corner found Hibs’ captain Joelle Murray who blasted the ball into the top corner with the last kick of the game.
