Hearts Women see off Saints

21st October 2019

Hearts Women have maintained their lead at the top of SWPL 2 after a 1-0 victory over St Johnstone yesterday.

The Jambos emerged victorious at Oriam thanks to Rachel Walkingshaw’s first-half free kick.

Walkingshaw arrowed her set piece straight into the roof of the net from around 25-yards out to give the hosts a deserved victory.


Hearts sit top of the league, six points ahead of second-placed Hamilton Academical, who have a game in hand and play on Wednesday night against Kilmarnock.

With only three games remaining, the Jambos can guarantee promotion to the top flight with victories against Kilmarnock, Glasgow Girls and Partick Thistle.
