Rangers 0-6 Hibernian – Match Summary – SWPL 2

Rangers 0-6 Hibernian

A superb first half performance where Hibs scored five goals, before running out 6-0 winner against Rangers.

They took the lead in the opening minute, when Lucy Graham pressed the Rangers’ defence, stole the ball and then found the bottom corner.

Great defending from Rachel O’Neill prevented Hibs from doubling their lead as she blocked Abi Harrison’s shot.

But this would be a temporary respite as Hibs did score their second as Lizzie Arnot’s free-kick found Harrison who flicked the ball with her heel into the net.

And then it was 3-0 as Arnot’s cross was turned in by a Rangers’ defender.

Sarah Ewens nearly found herself on the scoresheet but her chipped shot just went wide.

But then Hibs scored their fourth with Arnot once again the provider. This time, her low cross found Graham who picked out the bottom corner.

And then the Hibs’ captain Joelle Murray made it 5-0 when her 30-yard wonder-strike picked out the top corner.

Rangers had a couple of good chances early on in the second half, with Hayley Sinclair shooting wide, before Chantelle Brown missed the target from an indirect free-kick.

But Hibs still were looking for more goals and came close when Clare Williamson cut-off the wing and shot just over.

And then they made it 6-0 when from the edge of the box, Heather Richards side-footed the ball into the corner.

It could have been 7-0 when Kirsty Smith’s shot hit the inside of the post, but the ball rolled across the line but did not cross it.

Hibernian remains in second place, closing the gap on City to five points who plays on Monday. Rangers remain in fourth.
