Hibernian took the derby bragging rights in a closely-fought match against Hearts at Tynecastle Park. In front of 6,582 fans, a Charlotte Parker-Smith own-goal was the only difference between the sides.
The only goal was fairly fortunate for the away side and came at the perfect time with seconds remaining in the first half. A corner wasn't cleared by Hearts and fell to Abbie Ferguson, who sent the ball back towards goal. Her attempt was off target but goalkeeper Parker-Smith saw the ball bounce off her and into the net.
While the Jambos pushed for an equaliser, they failed to really test Katie Fraine who faced only two shots on target with eight off target.
The closest Hearts came in the second half was when Georgia Timms cross wasn't dealt with by Fraine. Luckily for her, Poppy Lawson was in the right place to block Katie Lockwood's attempt. Olufolasade 'Sade' Adamolekun came close 10 minutes later, but her shot was just dragged wide.
Hibernian move to within a point of Hearts ahead of their match at home to Aberdeen on Wednesday. Hearts face a tough game away at Celtic who have the only 100 per cent record in the league.
Rangers moved to the top with neither Celtic nor Glasgow City in action.
It was a shock opener as Dundee United took the lead with 31 seconds played, Keira Chuter on her senior debut firing home from the edge of the box.
