FIRST HALF

 
Hibs entertained Kilmarnock in the league having won 5-1 earlier in the month in the Scottish Cup. This time Hibs were without the injured Sarah Archibald, unavailable Arlene Livingston and suspended Claire Weir. With 2 goals apiece from Kaydee Low, Kim Little and Emma McCulley Hibs ran out 6-2 winners, in a day of doubles Danica Dalziel scored both Kilmarnock's counters.  Hibs were well on top in the first half against the wind and squandered 5 or 6 good chances to score before a Kim Little free-kick from just outside the box rattled Kyhm Ramsay's left hand post. Kaydee Low was first to react thundering home the re-bound to make the half-time score 1 - 0 
 

              SECOND HALF

Early in the second half Kilmarnock started brightly and when Kyhm Ramsay sprinted of her line and cleared the ball over the halfway line Laura Cooper (No.10) collected and played a nice pass through the middle into the path of Danica Dalziel who raced through and slotted past Louise Kedslie in the Hibs goal before Susan Blyth could get across to cover.  1 - 1
 
This spurred the Hibs Girls into action and they stepped up a gear. Natalie Ross played a pinpoint ball wide to Emma McCulley on the right who took the ball in her stride, drove forward and delivered a great right foot cross to the back post where Kaydee Low leaped to head back across the keeper  into the net to put Hibs back in front.

2 - 1

 

 
After a scramble in the Kilmarnock box following a Susan Blyth corner the ball broke to Kim Little who

somehow managed to fire the ball through a ruck of players and find the back of the net to increase Hibs lead to 3 - 1
 
Hibs Emma McCulley then produced some nifty footwork before slotting past a frustrated Kyhm Ramsay to make it 4 - 1
 
 
A Lauren Emerson free-kick from the right apex of the box was brilliantly headed of the line by Danielle Weir. Is that Miss Dalziel practicing her kung fu at the back post, more importantly who was marking her.
 
Kim Little rounds Kyhm Ramsay to score her second and make the score 5 - 1
Kilmarnock then broke forward when Lauren Emerson  crossed to the right apex of the box where Danica Dalziel hit a thunderous shot on the half volley past the diving Louise Kedslie to close the gap to 5 - 2.
