Renfrew’s lead at the top of the SWF Championship has been cut after the Lanarkshire side were held to a scoreless draw at home by bottom side Dryburgh Athletic.

Dryburgh goalkeeper Chantelle McKay produced a stunning penalty save to deny the hosts three points, which allowed Livingston and Rossvale to close the gap with 2-0 wins over Morton and Hutchison Vale respectively.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle were again involved in a high-scoring game, coming back from behind to draw with Ayr United in Cumnock, to keep both sides with the same points total. A hat-trick by young striker Rachel Scott for the home side looked to have secured three points but the Highlanders struck back to level 3-3.

In the Women’s League One, FC Edinburgh won the top-of-the-table clash with Falkirk comfortably, running out 4-0 winners at the Falkirk Stadium including a goal from Nicole Rutherford on her comeback from long-term injury.

Westdyke kept pace with FC Edinburgh with a 3-1 win against Stenhousemuir, meaning they too leapfrog the Central Scotland sides to second in the table.

Elsewhere, Dundee West came from 3-0 down to rescue a point from BSC Glasgow, while Airdrie Ladies held Edinburgh Caledonia to a scoreless draw at Meadowbank. Grampian Ladies got back to winning ways against Gleniffer Thistle and St Mirren slipped to a 2-1 defeat by Giffnock SC.
