On another fine afternoon for the women’s team, they secured a 2-1 victory over Hibs with goals from Kit Loferski – who was tremendous and won the player of the match award – and a headed goal from a Jacynta free kick.
The result puts us top. Temporarily.
The Ibrox women have just kicked off against Hearts, but the really important one comes later when Glasgow City take on Partick. They are expected to win comfortably, and that would move them back to the summit.
From there, we’d go into the final round of games.
With a plus 103 goal difference to Glasgow City’s plus 92 you would think that we’d be in good shape if they dropped anything at all. If we win against Hearts and they even draw against the Ibrox side we’re champions.
The match was live on Alba which was just about bearable.
But a glance at the BBC text commentary would have made you think that Hibs had the better of it. In fact, for those of us who watched it we know that Celtic treated much of the second half like a training exercise, and if Hibs had a late chance to grab a goal, really, so what?
Maybe Hibs would have gotten some “bragging rights.”
They seem to be all the rage at the moment, especially for clubs with no chance of silverware.
This women’s team has, like their male counterparts, had an exceptional season.
They deserve to cap it with a title. It’s not in our hands, but we’ve done the important thing today; we’ve gotten the win and we’ve put the pressure on Glasgow City and dared them to respond.
We’ll see later on what they come up with as an answer.
Either way, we’ve done we needed … it’s going to the wire, to the final game.
Typos happen, and today’s was a big one in putting the score at 2-0 rather than 2-1. Thanks as ever for those who drew attention to it. Got a lot on my plate today, so I rely on folks like you keeping an eye on that stuff for me.
In addition; a reminder. I am also manually approving every single comment on this site right now, because certain people cannot behave responsibly or debate issues without resorting to personal abuse. There are also a small number of halfwits and sad cases who continually bombard the comments section knowing full well that nothing they send is ever going to see the light of day. I expect that we’ll be doing it this way for a while, so I can only ask that you bear with me whilst I try to sort out a better solution.
