Hibernian closed the gap to Glasgow City to just two points as they won their game-in-hand against Stirling University.
After an even start, Hibernian started to threaten with Lucy Graham having a couple of chances before Lizzie Arnot went close.
And Hibernian took the lead in the 35th minute after a Stirling handball gave them a penalty, and Arnot calmly converted.
Just after the hour mark, Hibs doubled their lead. Clare Williamson’s shot smashed off the crossbar and Graham reacted quickest to score from the rebound.
They nearly made it 3-0 through Joelle Murray, but her effort was stopped by a wonder save from Stirling’s keeper Chloe Logan.
And then they did get their third after Arnot was brought down in the box and she converted her second spot-kick of the night.
In the 78th minute, Hibs made it 4-0 through Heather Richards’ stunning 30-yard strike that picked out the bottom corner.
And then late on, Abigail Harrison made it 5-0 as Hibs secured a crucial win.
