SWF Championship

Renfrew Ladies recovered from their recent 10-1 humbling in Livingston by holding the Championship leaders to a one-all draw in the reverse fixture at New Western Park.

Livingston winger Beth McKay had given the visitors a half-time lead after she latched on to a neat pass from Raewyn Murphy after 18 minutes and fired it low into the net, but Renfrew forward Sinead Macleod drifted in at the back post to score a deserved equaliser on the 70th minute.

As full-time approached, Livingston spurned chances for the winner, and the draw means Rossvale, Ayr United and Inverness Caledonian Thistle move closer to the top two.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle came from behind to beat Hutchison Vale 2-1 at home thanks to a double from Rhea Hossack. Ayr United took maximum points from Dryburgh Athletic with goals from Clare Docherty and Lauren Sloan early in the game ahead of a Dryburgh fightback which saw Alma Codegoni fire home from a corner into the roof of the net. Rossvale beat Morton 2-0 in Port Glasgow.
